Travel Website of the Week: MileCalc

MileCalcIt’s just about that time—that time when mileage junkies start flying all across the globe and returning home without leaving the airport. Why will they do this? So they can retain their elite status with the airlines. And this could be the last year we see this since both Delta and United are switching from mile-based to revenue-based frequent flyer programs next year. If American Airlines follows suit then these mileage runs might become obsolete.

In the meantime, for those that are trying to figure out how many miles they need, MileCalc is a great option since it calculates multiple airport codes and factors in elite levels, actual dollars spent, booking class, promotion bonus miles, fares, and even credit card bonuses. Visually, it’s not the prettiest site but it offers handy info.
