Tier Miles Expiry Date

Hello!

I have two questions regarding the expiry date of EK Tier miles.

I require an additional 12.5k miles to renew Gold by 30th November, as detailed by my Skywards statement.

Does this mean I have to gain those by 23.59 on 29th November or 23.59 on 30th November.

Secondly, with my return trip being overnight, I guess the Tier miles get split between 1st leg and 2nd leg? (i.e. 30th Nov / 1st Dec)

I'm planning to complete a trip around these dates, but would not want to miss out on renewing gold for the sake of one day.


Kind regards

Incorrect. The tier miles will be credited at the end of your return trip.

You don't actually receive miles for the different sectors, only one quantity of miles for the outbound and one for the inbound.

Thank you ft101 for your prompt reply.

Forgive me for a moment....So with a return (2 sector) flight leaving at 23.55 on 30th November, I would secure the additional miles required?

Otherwise I'm 500 short of renewal.


Kind regards

No. The miles would be credited at the end of your return trip (or a few hours later) which would make it 1st December, if I've understood you correctly.
