Oneworld Frequent Flyer Programs


Dieser Post ist auch verfügbar auf: German

updated 29.06.2014: new alliance members  TAM and SriLankan Airlines.

Compared to Star Alliance and Sky Team frequent flyer programs there are distinguished points:

  1. In contrast to Star Alliance and SkyTeam no airline is sharing their frequent flyer program. Even BA and Iberia, both are owned by holding group IAG , have different customer programs. This is neither the case for KLM/Air France or Swiss/Lufthansa.
  2. There are three levels for frequent flyers within the OneWorld alliance. Sky Team and Star Alliance each have only two levels above basic level


Level of status overview

  • First level above basic membership level is Ruby. With a Ruby level frequent flyer card you have access to business class check-in. Or might even select seats at booking that are normally blocked. and will be preferred at stand-by and waiting lists.
  • Sapphire is the next level above Ruby and the first one that really gives you some advantages. Additionally to all Ruby advantages you will receive access to the business class lounges and priority boarding. Good if you want to be the first blocking the overhead compartment 🙂
  • Top of all the levels is Emerald. It combines all Ruby and Sapphire offers and: fast track at security control, additional free luggage, access to first class check-in and first class check-in.

If you do not mind the airline you are using to earn status points but instead aims to jump to the levels as quickly as possible would best turn their eyes on Royal Jordanian. Ruby at 15,000 miles, Sapphire is achieved at 35,000 and Emerald for a mere 55,000 miles. Compared to the 20.000 miles for Gold Status with Aegean in Star Alliance the 35,000 Miles are kind of expensive. but once you have reached Emeraldyou will receive with access to the First Class lounge the better perks.
