Asia-Pacific Airline Award Ticket Change and Cancellation Policies

The Asia Pacific region includes some of our favorite carriers. Airlines such as Qantas, Singapore, ANA, Korean, Asiana, and Cathay Pacific offer a hard product and level of service well above the legacy carriers in the US. There’s also differences in the change and cancellation fees when comparing US and Asia Pacific programs, which tend to be priced in miles rather than cash.

But after digging into the program in depth, we’ve had to break it up into three posts. This installment will cover the different award charts with ANA Mileage Club.
