Obviously, you are asking because of the impending devaluation from Altitude to Krisflyer and Asia Miles.
Keith outlined recently here the general decision making process/questions to ask yourself before jumping to transfer from Altitude:
- Do you have a redemption in mind requiring extensive travel on either Singapore Airlines or on oneworld airlines?
- How often do you redeem via Velocity (who’s transfer rates aren’t changing)? Is it worth leaving some points in Altitude for the possibility of future bonuses on transfers to Velocity?
- If you transfer out any points to Asia Miles and/or KrisFlyer now, can you use them in the three year period before they will expire?
Please spend some time reading these for a reminder as to which FF program and routes are best value for redemptions (incl to US).
Also read up on Cathay Pacific Asia Miles programs - one of the better FFP for Aust IMO. Doesn’t hurt to join too. I have 0 Asia Miles
Both Krisflyer and Asia Miles are great FFP but each have their pros and cons. As with any award bookings, I try to book them when they are released so best to be organised and know destinations, routes, dates you intend to fly.
