ANA is making some minor changes to their partner award chart, for travel booked on or after April 1, 2011. Their award chart is distance based (meaning you’re charged based on the number of miles flown), so they’re just “simplifying” the award chart for travel of under 2,000 miles. See the new and old award chart here. Previously there were different rates for travel of 0-600 miles, 601-1,600 miles, and 1,601-2000 miles. Now they’re billing all awards of under 2,000 miles at the previous 1,601-2,000 mile level.
Fortunately other than that, the award chart remains unchanged… including the ability to book Virgin Atlantic from New York to London for 63,000 miles in Upper Class.
