The United Airlines website features an interactive travel destinations awards chart, where customers can choose their region of origin and destination to see how many award miles they need for flights to various destinations within a region. This chart shows the number of award miles required to book either one-way or round-trip flights in the economy, business or first class cabins. The website also features an upgrade awards chart that shows how many award miles are necessary to upgrade an existing economy class ticket to business or first class.

The American Airlines and US Airways award chart features similar information, but these two airlines offer both MileSAAver and AAnytime awards. MileSAAver awards tickets require less award miles, but these tickets have limited availability and are for those with flexible travel dates.

These tickets use even fewer award miles, but are only available during specified periods.
