Persevering with the “Sharing Emissions” sequence right here in Pontos pra Voar, we are going to speak, in as we speak’s submit, about a problem introduced ahead miles by the reader Cris Moya for a journey to Europe and Japan in economic system classutilizing AAdvantage miles.


Initially, I keep in mind that on this sequence I and the opposite editors of factors to flyalong with the readers (as within the case in query) we are going to share the emissions (each for flights already carried out and for future flights, not but carried out) which, within the present state of the packages, are advantageous.

In as we speak’s submit we are going to discuss issuing miles for a visit to Europe and Japan in economic system class, utilizing AAdvantage miles, flying with Iberia, Japan Airways (JAL), Qatar and Finnair.

I remind you that the central concept of ​​this sequence of posts is to point out you, reader, that it’s attainable to fly to totally different locations on this planet, with the miles gathered in nationwide and worldwide packages, to which we Brazilians have entry to dwell right here in Brazil.

Actually, on the premise of the participant’s broadcasts, we are going to, on the finish, make some feedback on locations, transmission choices, fares and cabins.

We then transfer on to speak about the issue of the reader who, kindly sharing her emissions, described the journey to Europe and Japan in economic system class, utilizing the miles of the AAdvantage program.

Objective of the journey

The broadcasts made by our reader had been supposed to provide her daughter a visit to Europe and, after a couple of days there, to depart for Japan, a rustic whose reminiscences are glorious.

Preliminary points had been as follows (all in economic system class):

In Europe: Guarulhos-Madrid-Milan (GRU-MAD-LIN), flying on Iberia for 50k factors plus tax.

One solution to Japan: Helsinki – Tokyo (HEL-HND), flying with JAL for less than 35,000 factors plus tax.

Spherical of Japan: Tokyo-Doha (NRT-DOH), flying to Qatar for less than 22.5k factors plus tax.

Return to Brazil: Doha-Guarulhos (DOH-GRU), flying with Qatar for 60 thousand factors plus taxes.

Complete: 167.5k factors plus tax, an excellent fee, particularly for individuals who, just like the reader, have taken benefit of Santander’s newest hit-and-miss promotions to generate useful AAdvantage miles.

It’s price clarifying that the reader’s preliminary concept was to satisfy her daughter in Tokyo, contemplating that the reader, as a health care provider, acquired a free ticket from Qatar within the promotion this firm ran in 2020 to honor these professionals, as we had already talked about right here.

Nevertheless, with the journey date approaching and Japan remaining restricted to vacationer entry, our reader has chosen to cancel broadcasts on the Helsinki to Tokyo Haneda (HEL-HND) route without cost.

So he made a brand new quantity from Helsinki to Doha through Frankfurt (HEL-FRA-DOH), with Finnair and Qatar, all for 20,000 factors plus tax, in order that his daughter can then return to Brazil.

Regardless of this, it’s nonetheless attainable for the reader to have a household assembly in Europe and we hope this may occur.

Feedback on issues

Now, after the total report of the emissions by the reader, we are going to speak a little bit in regards to the chosen locations, the emission choices accessible to us Brazilians, the tariffs charged and the cabins that, in precept, will likely be accessible on the segments issued.

Earlier than this, nevertheless, it’s advisable to point, on the map offered by the GCMAP web site, the aforementioned routes, for a greater view, in addition to the emission check despatched by the reader:

Goal and downside choices

Contemplating the journey locations, resembling Milan, Helsinki and Tokyo (this, sadly, doesn’t but obtain Brazilian vacationers), it should definitely be an excellent journey.

I have not had the chance to go to Helsinki but, however I am wanting ahead to attending to know town, a lot in order that I will likely be visiting town with my household firstly of subsequent 12 months.

As sights, I emphasize the Cathedral, Praça do Senado, the Outdated Market, the Esplanadi park, amongst others.

Milan and Tokyo are glorious locations that I already know, however that I intend to return quickly to go to some sights that I didn’t have the chance to go to on the earlier journey.

Due to this fact, we’re positive that the journey will likely be very fruitful.

Charges and Cabins to make use of

By way of fares, the AAdvantage desk in economic system class is principally from Europe to Asia 1 (HEL-HND phase) and from Asia 1 to the Center East (NRT-DOH phase, with journey between these areas very properly explored by the reader ) is incredible.

For comparability functions, the AAdvantage program, in complete, charged 167.5k miles, whereas TAP’s Miles & Go program would cost an identical quantity (2x80k = 160k).

Fastened schedule for the Miles & Go program in economic system class.

It occurs that the supply on the issued routes, particularly departing from Brazil, may be very unhealthy and, furthermore, the businesses that the Miles & Go program prices on gasoline taxes are in better portions (particularly on these routes) than these of the AAdvantage program.

A lot in order that in not one of the aforementioned issues was our reader charged the aforementioned price.

As well as, Livelo’s bonus promotions for the Miles & Go program, the final one in November final 12 months, are at the moment and sadly not working.

Actually, even when the era of miles by means of Livelo is simple, for instance, the absence of promotions coupled with the absence of excellent availability, has alienated readers from utilizing this program, which is why it’s price remembering the anticipated accumulation of miles made by our participant within the AAdvantage program.
