FFB News Round Up: SAS EuroBonus 2015 Mileage Earning & Status Qualifying Changes, JAL Mileage Bank 2015 Program Changes, Velocity & KrisFlyer conversion option



SAS Scandinavian EuroBonus is the next airline to release mileage earning changes for 2015. Unfortunately those flying on the cheapest fares including some of the higher SAS Plus categories won't earn as many EuroBonus points. The only flights where there seems to be an increase in mileage earning is long haul business class. The good news is that Elite Status qualification is lowered! Point requirements for Gold status: 45 000 Basic points (previously 50 000) or 45 one-way trips (previously 50), for Diamond status: 90 000 Basic points (previously 100 000) or 90 one-way trips (previously 100) (Source SAS)
EuroBonus 2014 Chart
EuroBonus 2015 Chart



Japan Airlines Mileage Bank have also released the details of their 2015 program. Some the major highlights include
  • JAL International First Class and Business Class award tickets mileage requirements are changing, see the charts below for flights from North American cities to Japan (not until Nov 1, 2015, now that's advance notice!!). As you can see business and first class are seeing major increases except on select days of the week and the lowest discount economy goes lower!
  • one way International award flights now only costing half the miles of a round trip flight.
  • new phone in fees for changing award ticket reservations
  • using miles to pay for excess baggage fees
  • award tickets will be able to be changed to the next higher class without the mileage reinstatement fee (Source JAL)

British Airways is changing the qualification criteria for their Gold Guest List elite status. Here is an excerpt from FlyerTalk where a BA representative posted this news. (Source: FlyerTalk)
You can qualify for Gold Guest List by either reaching 5,000 Tier Points during one single Tier Point Collection Year or by reaching 3,000 Tier Points in two consecutive Tier Point Collection Years. From 1st January 2015 Members will only be able to qualify for Gold Guest List by reaching 5,000 Tier Points during one single Tier Point Collection Year – which means that Members will no longer be able to qualify by reaching 3,000 Tier Points in two consecutive years....

...There is no change to the renewal criteria meaning that existing Gold Guest List Members can continue to renew by reaching 3,000 Tier Points during their Tier Point Collection Year.

airberlin: 1,000 Free topbonus Miles for registering for the frequent renter offer from Sixt returns!


Today we see the return of a free miles offer we saw earlier this year (see our post from July) Sixt is offering members of airberlin's topbonus program 1,000 free miles simply for registering on their site for a frequent renter offer from them.

When I signed up for the offer in July we did actually receive the miles, unlike the similar Miles&More offer which seems many people did not receive their miles.

To earn the 1,000 bonus topbonus miles simply register online by December 31st.


The registration also offer bonus miles on multiple Sixt rentals, if you complete 5+ rentals you'll earn 1,000 miles per rental, 10+ rentals earn 1,500 while 20+ earns 2,000. The latter two may be tough when the promotional period is only 38 days long.

Introducing the revamped FrequentFlyerBonuses.co.uk (FFB UK)

If you have been following Frequent Flyer Bonuses for at least a few years you'll have known that beyond our global .com website we also ran a version of the site for U.K. residents. The site launched in February of 2008 and was essentially a cut and paste model of the global site with offers not available to U.K. residents filtered out. It fell into disrepair after we revamped the global site in May 2013 and we stopped updating the UK site (and our German site for that matter).

We are now excited to let you know that we revamped and relaunched the site a couple of weeks ago and is now being updated frequently. We changed the style and format as we figured why duplicate the bonus offer pages off the main FFB site onto FFB UK. Instead FFB UK has now moved to a blog format and will feature posts about pertinent bonuses for residents of the U.K. in addition to select loyalty program news (or as they call it in the U.K. loyalty scheme news) and travel deals. We hope you enjoy the new U.K. site and as always we are open to suggestions, comments, questions and more. Feel free to let us know either via the FFB blog or via FFB U.K.!

Be sure to visit FrequentFlyerBonuses.co.uk today and don't forget to bookmark it!
