Updated earnings rates for SAS flights

A couple partners have updated the earnings rates for flights operated by SAS this month. Most notable in the changes are the United Airlines‘ MileagePlus program and US Airways‘ Dividend Miles programs are now providing credit for nearly all discounted economy fares, and they are doing so at a 100% rate. Previously US Air wasn’t providing any credit for these fares while United was providing only 25%.

Additionally, United has updated the earning rates for premium cabin flights, offering 175% RDMs (in addition to the same 150% PQMs) for all business class tickets. Full-fare economy – namely Y, B and S fares – will earn 125% RDMs along with the 150% PQMs.

Actually an upgrade in the points earning game. Who knew such was still possible.

The miles calculators in the Wandering Aramean Travel Tools have been updated to reflect the new numbers.
