A Comparison Of How Many Miles Are Needed For Award Flights On 116 OneWorld Direct Routes From NYC

Find more articles like this by clicking on the “Mileage Posts” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site.

Ever wonder how many miles you need for an award flight and if you are getting the best deal?

In the chart below you can find the rates for every direct OneWorld flight from NYC when using American (AA) miles, Alaska (AS) miles, British Airways (BA) Avios, Cathay Pacific (CX) Asia Miles, Iberia (IB) Avios, or LAN (LA) kilometers.

See the full comparison for miles required with these 6 carriers on 116 routes from NYC after the jump:

1. Rates in the chart below are for round-trip travel. Note that when using BA Avios it’s a good idea to book domestic travel as 2 one-ways.

The rates are given based on the miles you have. For example if you want to fly round-trip from Newark to Hong Kong in business class on Cathay Pacific you can use 100K Alaska miles, 140K American miles, 140K Cathay Pacific Asia miles, 210K British Airways, 250K Iberia Avios, or 280K LAN Kilometers.

2. Peak and off-peak pricing is displayed as 2 numbers on the same line. For example for a flight from Newark to London you would need 45K AA miles off-peak or 60K miles during peak dates or 26K BA Avios off-peak or 40K BA Avios during peak dates for a round-trip flight.

Peak dates vary by the miles that you have. For example off-peak dates for travel on American to Europe using Alaska miles are from October 15-May 15.

However off-peak dates for travel on American to Europe using American miles are from January 10-March 14 and November 1-December 14.

3. You can book some partner award travel on AA.com, Alaskaair.com, BA.com, AsiaMiles.com, and Iberia.com, but you’ll have to call to book travel on many partner airlines as none of their websites offer comprehensive partner awards. You have to call LAN to book partner award travel. You can also search for awards on Qantas.com and then call up the airline of your choice to book an award.

4. Airline rates displayed in bold indicate that high fuel surcharges will be owed when using the miles of that airline.

5. Cities in the chart may only have seasonal nonstop service.

6. A dash means that class of service isn’t offered on that route and N/A means that route can’t be booked with miles from that airline.

7. Rates for all airlines are in thousands of miles, except for LAN which is listed in thousands of kilometers. For example you can transfer 20K Starpoints (SPG) into 25K miles with American, Alaska, British Airways, and Cathay Pacific. You can also transfer miles at parity from British Airways to Iberia, so the same 20K:25K ratio applies there. 20K Starpoints transfers into 37.5K LAN kilometers, so divide the LAN kilometer requirement by 1.5 to compare their numbers to other airlines. A round-trip coach flight from JFK to Boston is 11K Iberia miles, 12K LAN kilometers, 15K AA, BA, or Cathay Pacific miles, or 25K Alaska miles. However those LAN kilometers are really the equivalent of just 8K miles (12/1.5).

Want to pickup some miles?

-The Starwood Consumer AMEX and the Starwood Business AMEX20K Starpoints (SPG) can transfer into 25K miles with the permanent 25% transfer bonus. When you transfer 20K Starpoints to LAN you’ll get 37.5K kilometers.

Transfers can take a few days.

-American Express Membership Rewards points can be earned from credit cards like The Amex EveryDay Preferred Card or The Amex EveryDay Card.

The Preferred card awards 1.5 points per dollar everywhere, 3 points per dollar on Uber and gas, and 4.5 points per dollar on groceries if you make 30 transactions per month.

The EveryDay card awards 1.2 points per dollar everywhere and 2.4 points per dollar on Uber and groceries if you make 20 transactions per month.

You can also earn Membership Rewards points from consumer charge cards like the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card and The Platinum Card® from American Express, and from business charge cards like the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Charge Card or The Business Platinum Card. 

The Blue for Business® Credit Card from American Express has no annual fee and a limited time increased signup bonus. It earns a generous 1.3 points per dollar everywhere, but you’ll need any of the membership rewards cards listed above to transfer points from that card into airline miles.

-You can also earn BA Avios directly with the Chase British Airways Visa Signature cardwhich is offering up to 100K Avios currently!

-Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred instantly at a 1:1 ratio into BA Avios from the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Plus credit cards.
Cards like Chase Freedom and Chase Ink Cash can’t directly transfer points into miles, you’ll have to transfer those points to a Sapphire Preferred or Ink Plus that belongs to an additional user before you can transfer those points to British Airways.

    YQ on BA is alot cheaper when booked through CX then AA. Sometimes it can be hundred dollars less.

    You forgot to mention about Iberia miles. Sometime it pays to book round trip over one way because they charge total miles distance

    Just called CX.
    JFK-LHR in BA coach was $535 instead of $682 with American.
    JFK-LHR in BA first was $793 instead of $1,155 with American.

    Good stuff!

    @Jay:
    Thanks 🙂

    Did you try searching from NYC with United miles?

    Whats up with AS not booking J on a AA 321T?
    Post 3/22 I was planning on using AS for it, but it doesn’t work, is this a new thing?

    Also whats very relevant is that LGA-DTW is in the AA short-haul band, even though GC mapper places it at 502 miles

    @high end hobo:
    My guess is that you can call them up and have them long-sell the space. But it will still cost the same rate as F.

    Yup, noticed the DTW anomaly in my research.

    You would want to search for nonstop saver award space on AA.com and then call CX to book.

    “However off-peak dates for travel on American to Europe using American miles are from January 10-March 14 and November 1-December 14.”

    I tried to book in april and it wouldn’t let me for under 30k per way (total of 60k) though that may be because I tried to day for april 20
