U.S. Airlines Make It Easier to Redeem Frequent Flyer Miles: New Study

Bloomberg

Seats on a commercial airplane. The six largest U.S. carriers grew more generous from 2013 to 2018 as they sought to encourage mileage redemption, said a new study from IdeaWorksCompany and CarTrawler. Bloomberg

Skift Take: The six largest U.S. airlines have lowered how many frequent-flier miles they require for some domestic flight awards, a study says. But the prices to redeem miles have tended to decline in tandem with airfares. In many cases, that means airline miles aren’t as valuable as before. Plus, international redemptions have generally gotten worse.
