Not much here, that’s how I would sum up the value of an Alitalia Millemiglia mile. Like many European carriers, Alitalia suffers from a lack of award availability. Furthermore, the few award seats available are priced exorbitantly high, especially on international flights. This is in contrast to many other carriers, where you’ll typically be able to wring out the most value crossing a border. This month, we’re placing a value of $0.0050 per Millemiglia mile.
As mentioned above, the miles required for some international premium cabin awards an insane, like comically bad. See below:
If you’re like me, you’re squinting a little bit to make sure you’re reading that correctly. Yes, over ONE MILLION miles to fly from London to New York in business. To add insult to injury, they’re not even giving you a good routing.
Currently, only Amex Membership Rewards and SPG’s Starpoints transfer to Alitalia, so Chase and Citi customers don’t have to worry about potentially making the mistake of transfering to Millemiglia. Our advice is to stear clear of this program unless absolutely dire circumstances present themselves.
