Is Emirates' Skywards The Best FFP?

I am thinking of changing FFP and wondering whether Emirates Skywards is the best program around?

A good FF program to me would provides:


  • Generous miles
  • Lesser miles to redeem free flight
  • Good online FFP account
  • Many promotions and truth to it
  • Good customer service

I hate to go to (my present) FFP's office just to correct mistakes done on their part. They also didn't stick to some of their promotions (the latest being not awarding some bonus miles to certain routes in their network). The miles were also being credited to my accounts after a lapse of up to 2 weeks from the date of travel.

I would appreciate feedbacks from EK's Skywarder.

Well I think it has it is very good however I think that Oneworld FFP's are probably the bet in terms or earning ability. I'm a AAdvantage member and I can earn using my credit card etc. The earning power is huge when you consider the routes and airlines which you can earn with - BA, Qantas etc........

I don't think that Skywards has any credit cards. Also I lost a lot of my miles on skywards because they expire very quickly.......I'm still annoyed about that.

Skywards first/business awards are very expensive, and that's how I usually use my miles. I credit EK to UA Mileage Plus usually.

While being of interest only rather locally (= parts of Europe), I regard AB's / HG's (and DI's) TopBonus as the most customer-friendly one:
  • Customer Help Desk is very quick to answer phonecalls. No orgies of button pressing for choices.
  • Award Flights are free; there are absolutely no charges / taxes / fees etc. to be paid.
  • And there is no limitation of seats available for Award flights: Any flight that has a single seat left for sale can be used !
