How the Major Oneworld Airlines Rate for the Person Who Has Few or No Miles, But Wants to Get In the Upgrade Game Overnight

No Miles? No Points? No Problem – February 2015 Edition

This is part two of FCF’s five-part series grading mileage programs of the three major alliances on how easy they make it for the novice (or upgrade expert)—the person with no or not enough miles—to get into the game through mileage-purchase or mileage-transfer opportunities. In short, we’re grading carriers on the ease of getting miles, which FCF calls the Rapid Miles Accumulation Rating.

Last month, FCF covered Sky Team airlines. This month one world is at bat; next we’ll rate Star Alliance carriers, and then non-Alliance carriers, and last, a recap of the best carriers to get easy mileage access.
