Is this a good offer?

Since the positive change to the frequent flyer program last year, Qmiles are fantastic for Business Class flights from Singapore (or surrounding cities) to Europe.

To me, Qatar Airways Business Class is the best in the world right now and I am not the only one to think so.

Let’s take a look at the number of miles that popular frequent flyer programs require for a one-way Business Class flight to Milan, Italy.

FFPAirlineMiles RequiredTaxes / Fees
Miles&SmilesTurkish Airlines45,000S$310
Asia MilesCathay Pacific70,000S$208
Asia MilesQatar Airways70,000S$491
Privilege ClubQatar Airways75,000S$55
KrisflyerSingapore Airlines92,000S$55

Bottom line

If you have expiring Citibank points, this is a fantastic opportunity.

Having the opportunity to fly one-way to Europe in a Qsuite with only 62,500 Citi miles (before 20% bonus) is a no-brainer, really.

Remember the usual rule-of-thumb: When you convert credit card points to a frequent flyer program, you will face the risk of any future devaluations of that program. But it is great to know that Qmiles do not expire with at least 1 activity every 3 years!
