Award Travel with Club Premier

Aeromexico’s Club Premier is somewhat of an underrated frequent flyer program. This program gives members access to the entire network of SkyTeam affiliates. Additionally, there are some other partner airlines for which members can redeem their miles, including Avianca and Copa.

As a SkyTeam affiliate, this means that members can redeem their miles for flights on Delta, Air France, KLM, and Korean Air — among others. Club Premier points can be redeemed for award travel with SkyTeam partners for travel in both economy and business class.

Unfortunately, it appears as though finding saver business class award space will be quite the challenge. If you're lucky enough to find saver space in a premium cabin, Aeromexico's award pricing is relatively competitive. However, full-fare business class awards are significantly more expensive than economy class awards.

  • The one major problem with Aeromexico is that if you change your mind after booking an award, for any reason, Aeromexico will let you change travel dates and times only, for up to a year, otherwise you lose your points. According to their posted terms and conditions. Delta and Air France/KLM programs allow changes to the itinerary, as well as redepositing your points (fees might apply). I had a situation where I had to change an Air France award ticket from Paris at the last minute, and the only rebooking alternative available without transferring additional points was to change my flight to a London departure (on Delta), which was no problem with just a phone call to Flying Blue. Also had a situation where I had a Korean Air biz class booking with Skymiles, and First Class became available, but through Korean Air’s own program (transferred Chase points for that at that time) and redeposited my SkyMiles, which I still have not used. Had either of those been through Aeromexico, I would not have been able to make changes like those, and would have had to hope I would get another chance to fly the EXACT same routes within a year to avoid losing the points.

    • Stephen – I’m not seeing that in the terms. When I go here (https://www.clubpremier.com/us/about-us/award-tickets/award-ticket/) I see that they have different types of awards. The first says “Subject to availability for the selected fare class.” The other type says it depends on the fare type, there’s a a change fee, you will pay the fare difference (if any) after changes, and digging into other pages of their terms says nothing about what you’ve mentioned. Can you tell me where you are seeing that you must keep the route and must fly it within a year/no miles redeposits allowed?

    For the past 40 years, I have always thought and still do believe, Aeromexico has been and still is the premier airline of Mexico. I have flown all over Mexico and to and from several places inside the United States, using them. The service has always been good and its aircraft are well maintained.
