How many Miles will I earn?The number of Award Miles and Level Miles you will earn depends on three important factors:
1) The marketing carrier and the operating airline
The accrual scheme of the marketing carrier determines how many Miles you can earn on your flight. It is easy to find out which airline is the marketing carrier for your flight. The two-digit airline code that comes before the flight number (e.g. A5 0123) shows which airline is the marketing carrier.
If your flight number starts with an airline code from one of the Flying Blue partner airlines (e.g. AZ 0123) the accrual scheme of that specific partner (in this case Alitalia) will apply, even if the flight is operated by another Flying Blue partner airline. Please check the relevant airline partner page for more information about the number of Miles you can earn.
2) The distance flown
The distance in miles between the place of origin and destination determines the number of Award Miles and Level Miles you will earn. Flying Blue offers you a minimum number of Miles when the distance you cover one-way is less than 500 miles. In this case you will earn the minimum of 500 Award Miles and Level Miles.*Passengers with a Basic fare can earn 250 Miles by paying EUR 5.
* Please note that the above accrual scheme also applies to the minimum amount.
3) The booking sub-class
Every cabin class is divided into different booking sub-classes, related to the fare you booked. The booking sub-class is specified as a letter on your ticket and will determine the percentage of Miles you earn based on the distance flown, as described above. Please have a look at the table below to check the accrual percentage for your booking sub-class.
How does the calculation work?Use our handy Miles Calculator to find out how many Miles you will earn with your ticket. An explanation of the calculation for earning Miles is given below.
Level Miles = distance in miles x earning percentage of booking sub-class
Award Miles = (distance in miles x earning percentage of booking sub-class) +
if applicable ((distance in miles x earning percentage of booking sub class capped at 100%) x earning percentage Elite bonus)
