Air France and HOP! Have now extended the level and award miles earnings to lowest Mini and Basic fares that previously didn’t earn any.
You only earn 125 to 150 miles or 20% of the actual distance flown and only if you credit to FlyingBlue program.
You can access FlyingBlue’s webpage for this announcement here.
Here are the FlyingBlue earnings for HOP!:
And here are the FlyingBlue earnings for Air France:
I guess that nobody really cares whether they would earn 125 or 150 miles for some flights? Qualifying segments are entirely different thing for those that make their elite status not on miles flown but on segments flown.
Looking at the Air France earnings table, I can only come to a conclusion that they could reduce the different earning percentages among fare classes and regions.
