Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has finally released its World of Riches for Q3 and is offering 30% off Enrich Miles redemptions. This offer is available for booking until the 30th of September 2014, and is for bookings until the 30th of September, so a short window – so be quick and share with friends!
What Routes are in the 30% Off Redemption Promotion?
As with most of the redemption promotions that Malaysia Airlines offer there are only a certain number of routes on offer, in this case Malaysia Airlines is looking to offload some of its spare seats on its domestic and China routes. Unfortunately the flight window for this is quite short, and for some it’s just not going to be suitable – I hope the next one is more generous.
You can find all of the deals on the Malaysia Airlines page.

What is the Best Value Redemption?
Generally you’ll find that business class redemptions are the best value on Malaysia Airlines, and long-haul redemptions will be better than short-haul redemptions. Enrich Miles can be worth anything from less than a sen per mile to over 10, I’ve done analysis here previously.
So for this promotion I decided to have a look at flights to Beijing for their value. It is worth noting that all of the dates that I checked I found the business D class redemptions available – making this a redemption bargain at just 56,000.
The business class flights were selling for RM5236 and the redemption was 56,000 + RM 996 making the Enrich Miles worth 7.5 sen per mile, which is pretty good but I have seen redemptions over the 10 sen mark before. I suspect this is because of the low-cost of the flights due to whats happened over the last few months
Malaysia Airlines regularly run these promotions and its obviously related to the drop in passenger numbers from Malaysia to China (and reverse). As the flights are in the near future I wouldn’t worry about cancellations etc, but if you are concerned I recently did a post on some thoughts on the future of Malaysia Airlines here.
