Persevering with the “Sharing Emissions” collection right here at Pontos pra Voar, in as we speak’s submit we are going to discuss a problem carried out with miles by the reader Cris Moya for a journey to Europe and Japan in economic system classutilizing AAdvantage miles.
At first I bear in mind on this collection and the opposite editors of factors to flywe are going to share alongside the readers (as within the present case) emissions (each for flights already carried out and future flights, which haven’t but been carried out) that, underneath the present phrases of the packages, are useful.

I remind you that the central thought of this collection of posts is to point out you, reader, that it’s doable to fly to completely different locations on the planet, with the miles collected in nationwide and worldwide packages, to which we Brazilians have entry stay right here in Brazil.
In actual fact, based mostly on the reader’s broadcasts, we’ll make some feedback on the finish about locations, broadcast choices, charges, and cabins.
We then transfer on to the issue of the reader who, kindly sharing her emissions, described the journey to Europe and Japan in economic system class, utilizing miles from the AAdvantage program.
Our reader’s broadcasts had been meant to offer her daughter with a visit to Europe and, after just a few days there, depart for Japan, a rustic with wonderful recollections.
The preliminary emissions had been as follows (all in economic system class):
To Europe: Guarulhos-Madrid-Milan (GRU-MAD-LIN), flying with Iberia for 50,000 factors plus taxes.
One solution to Japan: Helsinki – Tokyo (HEL-HND), flying with JAL for under 35,000 factors plus taxes.
Tour of Japan: Tokyo-Doha (NRT-DOH), flying by way of Qatar for under 22,500 factors plus tax.

Complete: 167.5k factors plus taxes, an excellent price, particularly for individuals who, just like the reader, have taken benefit of Santander’s newest hit-and-miss promotions to generate helpful AAdvantage miles.
It’s price clarifying that the reader’s unique thought was to fulfill her daughter in Tokyo, because the reader, who was a health care provider, had been given a free ticket from Qatar within the promotion that this firm made in 2020 to to honor these professionals, as we had already talked about right here.
With the journey date approaching and Japan nonetheless having restrictions on vacationer entry, our reader has chosen to cancel broadcasts on the Helsinki to Tokyo Haneda (HEL-HND) part freed from cost.
So she made one other concern from Helsinki to Doha by way of Frankfurt (HEL-FRA-DOH), with Finnair and Qatar, all for 20k factors plus tax, in order that her daughter can then return to Brazil.
Regardless of this, it’s nonetheless doable for the reader to carry a household gathering in Europe, and we hope that it’ll.
Now, after the reader’s full report on the emissions, we are going to discuss slightly bit concerning the locations chosen, the emission choices that will probably be accessible to us Brazilians, the charges that will probably be charged and the cabins that will probably be obtainable in precept on the issued segments.
Earlier than that, nevertheless, it’s advisable to point out on the map of the GCMAP web site the above routes, for higher visualization, in addition to the proof of emissions despatched by the reader:
Vacation spot and concern choices
Contemplating the locations of the journey, reminiscent of Milan, Helsinki and Tokyo (sadly it nonetheless doesn’t obtain Brazilian vacationers), it’s positive to be a wonderful journey.
I nonetheless have not had an opportunity to go to Helsinki, however I can not wait to get to know the town, a lot in order that I’ll go to the town with my household early subsequent yr.

By way of fares, the Economic system Class AAdvantage desk 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 extremely effectively researched) is unbelievable.
As compared, the AAdvantage program billed a complete of 167,5,000 miles, whereas TAP’s Miles&Go program billed an identical quantity (2x80k=160k).
There are occasions when the provision on the routes issued, particularly these leaving Brazil, may be very poor and, furthermore, the businesses that cost the Miles&Go program for the gasoline prices in bigger portions (particularly on these routes) than these of the AAdvantage program.
A lot in order that in not one of the aforementioned points was the aforementioned price charged to our reader.
As well as, at the moment and sadly Livelo’s bonus promotions for the Miles&Go program are not going down, the final going down in November final yr.
Whereas incomes miles is straightforward by way of Livelo for instance, the absence of promotions coupled with the shortage of excellent availability has prevented readers from utilizing this program. Due to this fact, it’s price checking the deliberate accumulation of miles carried out by our reader within the AAdvantage program.
On the Guarulhos-Madrid (GRU-MAD) route, within the economic system class cabin, Iberia has used an A330-300, with 242 seats and a 2-4-2 configuration.
