Emirates Skywards Miles Accelerator Offers for November

Each month Emirates releases bonus offers on select routes across their network called 'Miles Accelerator' bonuses. The Miles Accelerator feature allows you to search out routes, presumably the ones you need to fly on and see if any of them are offering more miles. Typically flights that are seeing less demand will see a bonus offer. For example, city pairs that have more then one flight a day may have different bonuses offered depending on the flight.  As you can see on the following Frankfurt - Dubai screen grab for November, the early morning flight to Dubai has no bonus for economy class presumably because the flight is showing enough demand:

Sometimes the bonuses are the same for the return flight but on many occasions they are not, as seen on the return Dubai to Frankfurt routing:




Here are some other routes that have bonuses for the month of November
Route First Class Business Class Economy Class
Abidjan - Dubai 16,000 bonus Miles 8,000 bonus Miles Not available
Amsterdam - Dubai 10,000 bonus Miles Not available 2,000 bonus Miles
Bangkok - Dubai 6,000 bonus Miles 4,000 bonus Miles 4,000 bonus Miles

Seoul - Dubai Not available Not available 6,000 bonus Miles
Toronto - Dubai 12,000 bonus Miles Not available Not available
Vienna - Dubai 10,000 bonus Miles 6,000 bonus Miles 2,000 bonus Miles

Overall the Miles Accelerator offer from Emirates is a good way to earn some extra miles on your EK flights if you do fly on one of them that is offering a bonus. The bonus miles do not cost you anything extra, all you have to do is opt-in each month into the Miles Accelerator program and see if you can take advantage of any of the routes that have bonus offers on them. It is wise to check the offers on a monthly basis or visit our Skywards page for a sampling of offers as sometimes the bonuses can get quite large as  witnessed earlier this year when you could earn 70,000 Bonus Skywards miles for flights in first class between Los Angeles and Dubai.

Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: October 10 - 16, 2011

As I mentioned last week, only 2 days of updates last week meant I only added offers to 14 programs which definitely makes it easier to make my picks:
 
Bonus Offer For Flying
With nary a flight bonus for nearly a year, Virgin Atlantic has doled up two offers over the past two weeks and the latest takes top spot:  
Virgin Atlantic Flying Club:  50% Bonus Flying Club Miles when you fly on any Virgin Atlantic flight Worldwide in Premium Economy Class (W,S,K Booking classes) Full details, online registration and booking (Registration is required) Register by Nov 7, 11 for travel until Dec 10, 11

Bonus Offer For Staying (Airline Miles)

Seeing as I didn't add too many offers no offers really stood out in this category but per night offers usually win out as is the case here:

500 Bonus KrisFlyer Miles PER NIGHT for stays at participating Fairmont Hotels in Asia. Max bonus is 2,000 miles.
Participating Hotels
* Fairmont Singapore
* Fairmont Beijing

Bonus Offer For Staying (Hotel Points)

With 4 new offers added to 3 programs and one of them being a systemwide offer, take a guess as to which is my pick:

Double A|Club Points for all stays Worldwide that are booked online at A-Club.com. Full Details. Book by Nov 15 for stays until Dec 18, 11

Bonus Offer For Driving
Three out of the four offers I put up last week were the same so I picked the one I believe is part of the most popular program out of the three:
