Recommended Star Alliance FF Plan for kids
Tiis is kind of a follow-up to the post last week about if kids should have frequent flyer accounts.
What I think will work best for them is to be in an FF program where miles don’t expire, even with no recent activity, until they are 18. I saw one comment referencing TK’s “Heroes” program for children that does this, but could find nothing on TK’s site about it.
Then I found Aeroplan’ s site and they have what looks to be what I’m looking for — no expiry on miles earned until you’re 18: [URL]https://www.aeroplan.com/faqhelp/3048[/URL]
But I’m really confused about the relationship between Aeroplan and Air Canada. As I read it, their partnership will end in 2020, so I’m not sure what happens then.
Are there any FFPs in Star Alliance where miles don’t expire, even with no recent activity, until the account holder turns 18?
Well, Aeroplan keeps the miles in the divorce with Air Canada, so those will be effectively worthless come 2020. I don’t know anything about the Turkish program for kids, unfortunately.
