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 massive lack of award availability. Furthermore, the few award seats available are priced exorbitantly high. Especially on international, premium-cabin itineraries. This contrasts with many competing carriers, where you’ll typically find the most value when crossing a border. This month, we’re placing an abysmal value of 0.18¢ per Millemiglia mile. This represents a decline of approximately 64% since last year.
|Current||Previous Period||$ Change||% Change|
|Intra-Europe Non-Zero Average||0.95¢||1.01¢||-0.06¢||-6%|
|International Non-Zero Average||0.41¢||0.83¢||-0.42¢||-51%|
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 Rome to Miami in business.
Currently, only Amex Membership Rewards and Capital One Venture Rewards transfer to MilleMiglia. Chase and Citi customers don’t have to worry about making the mistake of moving valuable points to the program. Our advice is to steer clear of this program unless absolutely dire circumstances present themselves.
