→Frequent flyers: - added scenarios in case of airline merger
Currently only [http://www.travelgrove.com/ Travelgrove's meta search engine] is showing the miles that can be earned for each flight. In cooperation with MileBlaster, extras like credit card bonuses, hotel bonuses, special offers are also available, and the results can be ordered by the percentage of the free flight that can be gained by booking the given flight, so it is definitely a good choice for frequent flyers looking to collect enough miles for a free flight.
Your airline of choice may be a member of an '''airline alliance''', which allows you to earn and use your miles on other airlines in the same alliance as well. The big three alliances are [http://www.staralliance.com Star Alliance], [http://www.oneworld.com oneworld] and [http://www.skyteam.com SkyTeam]. With the many frequent flyer programmes out there, it's simpler to be a member of one programme per alliance, at most.
Being on a frequent flyer programme of a particular carrier makes it more convenient to make bookings with that carrier. When you log-on using your frequent flyer number and book a flight, your details (such as name, passport details etc.) are automatically filled-in whether the flight is mileage accruable or not.
