Reply To: Air France does not credit all miles

Back to Forum



The logic from Air France is pretty simple, airlines make next to nothing on economy fares, even full Y class tickets, so there is no incentive for them to reward passengers with miles/rewards and potential upgrades who dont contribute in a major way to their bottom line (most airlines would struggle to make even close to triple figures on a full Y class let alone a restricted ticket).
To put it bluntly airlines are not overly concerned about the loyalty of economy class passengers (within reason – im not saying they dont want your business at all) but they rightly focus the rewards on the passengers who contribute the most.
