Asia Miles Redemption Groups

0

This is more of a public announcement for those who aren’t too familiar with Asia Miles redemptions for travelers other than themselves.

Unlike most other airlines which allow you to book award redemptions for any person, Asia Miles restricts this to only 5 individuals as part of your redemption group. After you use up the 5 redemption group slots, you can replace existing members at $50US each, but you can’t add anymore.

e.g. If you have a family of 6, you’ll have to replace one person constantly by paying $50 if you want to use Asia Miles to book tickets for them. This is extremely unfriendly, and honestly completely unnecessary from an airline standpoint, only exists for ancillary revenue.

In case you’re wondering how it works, it’s very straightforward. You’ll go to the Asia Miles website and under redemption group, add or replace an individual. All you need is first name, last name (family), and Asia Miles number if applicable.

In my photo below, you’ll see the $50 has been taken off since I haven’t yet hit my 5 limit. I have added 2 people total over the years, so 3 slots are left.

If you plan on being generous and buying tickets for others using your Asia Miles, keep in mind this limit!

Here is the official wording from Asia Miles

Your first five nominee additions and replacements
  • You’re entitled to add or replace your nominees for up to five times for free during your membership period. Any addition or replacement after five times will be charged with a handling fee.
  • Each nominee addition or replacement will be counted as one executed action, however, updating your nominee’s title, adding their membership card number, or removing a nominee from the list, will not affect your nominee additional and replacement quota.

Additional nominees and replacements
  • If you’ve used up your original free add or replace quota, you can add or replace nominees up to three times per membership year for a service charge of USD50 (online form) or USD75 (other channels).
  • Each nominee addition or replacement will be counted as one executed action, however, updating your nominee’s title, adding their membership card number, or removing a nominee from the list, will not affect your nominee additional and replacement quota.
