EK Upgrade and Tier Miles

Hi all,

A new member here! Iíve recently qualified for EK Silver and will get EK Gold (and probably Platinum) before the end of my membership year. Just a quick question about upgrades and tier miles.

If I book and pay in J Flex and the subsequently use my Skywards miles to upgrade to F Flex or use Cash+Miles for F Flex, would I earn tier miles in the cabin/ticket Iíve originally booked, or what Iíve upgraded using my miles?

Thanks - FM!

You can't upgrade with cash+miles. Miles and discounted cash upgrades earn in the originally ticketed fare, full fare difference upgrades earn in the higher fare

When upgrading to the next cabin using miles, you get the Tier Points for the originally ticketed fare.

For cash+miles (which, btw, I don't think the economics are usually attractive), you earn on the cash portion, but it's no clear to me whether it's pro-rata or not.

" Youíll earn Skywards Miles and Tier Miles on the part of your ticket that you pay for in cash, excluding carrier imposed charges, taxes and fees. The rate will depend on the type of ticket you have bought."
