Airline Programs Offering Family or Household Mileage Pooling

I noticed that BA Avios offers the ability to have a family plan to pool all of your miles accumulated by multiple family members. Are there any other programs that do this?

Any *A airlines specifically?

Thanks!

Not many in the major three big airline alliances.

Asiana Club's Family Mileage Plan is the first that comes to mind in *, now that BMI is no longer part of the * Alliance picture.

Lufthansa has a family program that you could sign up for. Problem is they only offer it to those in the Middle East:

Egyptair would do that - StarAlliance, a 1000 point sign up bonus, 30k = silver with the next 30k in two years giving gold status, and just 30k to retain gold.

out of all of the airlines listed which ones have the most favourable reward charts for us to europe (with low fuel surcharges), or short haul domestic trips?

I know BA is oneworld and great for the 4500 one way short haul.

it looks like the *A airlines listed above mostly have distance based reward structures?

Some times distance based award charts are great for Europe especially if you live on east coast

definitely, for short haul hops around the us it works very nicely as well. however I think Avios will be my family plan for oneworld, now to choose for *A if only A3 offered it, then I could work towards Star Gold at the same time lol

Not *A.. but Korean Air provides this as well. I remember I got couple thousand miles from my mom's account to get on a business award ticket for ICN-JFK.

Finnair let's you move miles between household members.

Traditionally BA has been good for burning miles going west of the UK, while at the same time making redemptions to Singapore completely unattainable.

KE Korean Air has the ability to combine points for directly related family members. You have to prove it with Marriage License/Birth Certs, but once it's approved it is accessible via your account
