We’re introducing a broader range of award prices. For flights on or after November 15, 2019, we’ll no longer publish an award chart listing the set amount of miles needed for each flight. If you’re searching for flights that take place before November 15, 2019, award prices will be the same as or lower than what’s published. If you’re planning to travel on or after November 15 or want to learn more, visit Award travel updates.
