As an Aeroplan member, you have access to a world of travel possibilities through Air Canada and its partners. However, navigating the program to find the most valuable redemptions and sweet spots can be a daunting task. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
We’re thrilled to announce the rollout of some great new features that we know you’re going to love! As we continue to innovate and improve our platform, we had the chance to incorporate some of your feedback in this new version of AwardFares.
AwardFares is a modern and fast platform to search award availability across multiple frequent flyer programs. Among other things, it lets you search flights to find available award seats, setup alerts to monitor award availability, and lookup seat maps and flight schedules.
Knowing where to spend your SAS EuroBonus points is always challenging. Are you getting good value for them? How much is a EuroBonus point worth? Should you book cash, points or points+cash? We get it, it’s tricky.
On a recent trip to Tokyo I ended up initially booking an economy flight with Finnair. However, I was surprised to see that I was able to upgrade from economy to business for only €350! That was definitely too good to pass up on, especially since I had been looking forward to try Finnair’s new “non-reclining” business class seats.
With great fanfare, SAS opened a new route from CPH to JFK and I was able to snag a seat in business class on their opening night. This route is part of SAS’ new strategy of flying more point-to-point routes to the US with their smaller A321LR (Long Range). They use this plane on routes from Gothenburg and Aalborg to Newark as well as on several routes from the Nordics to Washington DC and Toronto. The aircraft offers a full 3 class configuration even though it’s a relatively small single aisle aircraft. This has some pros and cons as you will see in this review.
One of the best ways of booking your perfect award trip is to plan far in advance. Even though most airlines generally release new award space continuously throughout the year, it is always best to book as far in advance as possible. This guide will help you answer the question of how long in advance airlines such as Lufthansa release award seats?
One of the great perks of having Oneworld Emerald status it that gives you access to many great first class lounges around the world. Prior to a late evening Finnair departure out of Haneda I was able to enjoy a couple of hours in the JAL First Class lounge at Haneda (HND) in Tokyo.
After having recently acquired my SkyTeam Elite Plus status, through the Delta Skymiles status-match program (matching my BA Executive Gold), I was looking forward to try my first long-haul SkyTeam flight onboard Taiwan’s state-owned carrier. A long 13.5 hour flight from Amsterdam (AMS) to Taipei Taoyuan (TPE) and then connecting onwards to Tokyo.
SAS recently announced the launch of their second route between Copenhagen and New York flying to JFK. We’ve been eagerly awaiting to see what will happen to the award space on this route. The wait is over and as of today the award space is wide open!
Earlier this year I was trying to book a flight from Miami to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I was checking AwardFares for seats available using my SAS EuroBonus points. I saw two seats available in Business Class with Copa Airlines, and I booked them right away.
