Advice on crediting a flight
I have a paid Swiss business class ticket coming up and I’m trying to determine which program I should credit the miles to. I have primarily been accruing Citi ThankYou points so I would like to credit the Swiss miles to a program which is also a partner airline with Citi. I understand that everyone has different travel objectives and circumstances, but I’m just curious what others would do in this situation. I’m leaning towards EVA Air at the moment.

Do you know what fare code you are in?
If it is C or J, then you’d get:
130% on EVA
125% on Singapore
If it is D or Z, then you’d get:
125% on EVA
125% on Singapore
If it is P, then you’d get:
100% on EVA
0 on Singapore
EVA seems like the better option depending on the fare code. Personally, I think Singapore is more valuable (but I’ve never redeemed through EVA before). Someone else may be able to chime in.
Just keep in mind if you choose Singapore that the miles have a hard expiration date regardless of activity on your account.
