Take a lot of short-haul flts on AS/QX? Consider the Chase BA card.

This topic has been discussed on numerous forums but I thought it might be helpful to some of our newer readers.

If you take many one-segment flts of less than 651 miles you should consider getting the Chase BA card for the 50K Avios it gives you (after charging $2000 w/in the first 3 months). On AS/QX (also AA/US) flts it will only cost you 4500 Avios for each one-way flt. That's 11 one-way flts for getting one credit card. We make a lot of flts in the NW so this is very valuable for us. You also have an annual fee on the card. See https://creditcards.chase.com/credit...&slatesplit=2&

Miles Econ. Bus. First

1-650 4,500 9,000 13,500
651-1151 7,500 15,000 22,500
1152-2K 10,000 20,000 30,000
2001-3K 12,500 25,000 37,500
3001-4K 20,000 40,000 60,000
4001-5.5K 25,000 50,000 75,000
5501-6.5K 30,000 60,000 90,000
6501-7K 35,000 70,000 105,000
7001-100K 50,000 100,000 150,000

The AS credit card is fine too but only gives you 25K>30K miles and ANY one-way flt on AS/QX will eat up 12,500 of those miles. This card works best for longer flts and some partner flts.

Just food for thought. Happy travels.
[I do not get a referral for either of these cards.]

Probably works best for SEA and PDX flyers as I understand connections are priced higher.

As I mentioned above these work best for one-segment flts. under 651 miles. Works great for BOI-SEA, BOI-PDX, BOI-SFO/OAK/SJC too.
