I have joined the Flying blue program and Iberia plus program. In Flying blue, you earn miles for the flights that you have done. However, on IB plus its points that you earn.
I think there's more transparency with miles because you can anticipate using Grat circle mapper how many miles you will earn. Then depending on the conditions(25% of total miles on some foights and 100 % on others) you can calculatefrom the total amount of miles.
However, with IB plus its not possible to calculate the amount of points you will earn. Thus I think there is less transparency and I wonder how these points are calculated.
Here are my quasetions :
1) Which system do you think is better?
2) How are the amount of points calculated?
3) Which other FF uses points rather than miles?
