Spending Miles on UIA

Just wondering if there's any way to use non-Ukraine Internat'l Airlines miles to book award travel / discounted travel on that airline. The flight is cheap as is, but I have a stockpile of AA, DL, and AS miles that I'm ready to burn.

TIA

Perhaps this thread belongs rather to "Other European Airlines"

But regarding your question, it seems for UIA flights you can earn/redeem miles of:
  • Etihad
  • Flying Blue
  • TAP

IUA flights may be cheap but redeem miles is another story

I checked the calculator for flying blue , a JFK-KBP-JFK in Y will cost 50K FB miles and J its only for 200k miles . So i guess with AA/DL it will be the same story

Agree, miles redemption (even with UIA miles) is not cheap.
The best option is to redeem for upgrade (wich are very cheap) : 5000 for Paris or 7500 for dubai for exemple, wich is a great deal because you earn miles quite fast with UIA.
