Already booked a ticket?

We've made a few changes to our Economy cabin, but if you booked your ticket before the 17 March 2018, your membership benefits* and the number of miles you'll earn won't change for that trip. This page gives you a quick look at the benefits you'll get for your tier and the miles you'll earn.

If you booked your ticket before the 17 March 2018 and have a question about the new seating options in our Economy cabin, you might find our Frequently asked questions page helpful.

*If you're a Gold member and are flying from 10 April, Extra legroom seats will be available as an Economy Delight ticket.

Earning miles

If you booked your ticket before the 17 March 2018, the miles in these booking classes will still apply:

The number of miles you earn all depends on how many miles you fly, your choice of cabin, ticket type and your Flying Club membership tier. As you move through our tiers you'll earn an additional cabin bonus on top of the miles flown. This is an extra 30% for Silver and 60% for Gold.
