Iberia Airlines recently brought changes to its frequent flyers program much to the chagrin of the popular loyalty scheme Airmiles members.
The airline said that it is now going to ask its Airmiles members claiming ‘free flights’ to pay all the charges incurred on fuel and airport taxes.
The recent loyalty scheme overhaul has been jointly brought into vogue by British Airways as well as its new partner Iberia Airlines.
According to the airline, customers will be required to pay up to US$161.43 for returntrip to Europe, US$484.29 for New York, US$678 for Tokyo and up to US$968.58 for Australia.
Airmiles frequent flyer program is owned by British Airways and is also being used by Iberia Airlines after its merger with British Airways.
The loyalty scheme overhaul will affect nearly 8 million members of British Airways, Iberia Airlines and other member airlines.
