I was starting to write a post laying out which airlines offer the lowest mileage redemption levels between each region. The number of miles you need to go from, say, New York to Buenos Aires can vary widely by airline.
I was all excited (?) about this idea, when in the course of doing a little research about it I saw the site Milez.biz (gee, hard to believe that web address was available). The site is simple — enter your departure and arrival cities and – poof – it tells you the number of miles required by every frequent flyer program. Damn, that’s pretty sweet.
I found it extremely useful as I – shameless plug – help create Custom Credit Card Plans for people. And you’ll find it useful too, especially if you have miles in a number of programs.
I have no idea how I hadn’t heard about this before.
(I’ll give credit where it’s due – I saw this on Flyertalk…well, I won’t always give credit where it’s due. I’ll probably steal ideas from time to time, but let’s just say that this specific time, I’ll give credit where it’s due.)
