Along with the Firefly earning promotion which I posted on yesterday Malaysia Airlines has also got on at the moment a Malaysia Day MASWings Promotion offering 30% off Enrich redemptions. Details can be found on the Malaysia Airlines site here:
Details of the Malaysia Day MASWings Promotion
As with the Firefly promotion this offering is currently on and runs until the 5th September for bookings between now and the 31st December – so the window is much better than the Firefly Promotion giving you some opportunity to use it.
Working Out the Enrich Miles Required
Because of the change earlier in the year to a revenue based system its now a little difficult to work out the Enrich Miles required for redemptions. Malaysia Airlines have published the following table with the “From” prices to sort of help you.
I did a couple of quick searches for Sibu-Bintulu and flights were available at the published “From” rates on a pretty regular basis so this promotion could be worthwhile if you’re looking to burn some Enrich Miles on these short-haul routes.
What are the Restrictions?
Any flights that have a B fare class are eligible for the promotion – which are the heavily discounted Economy class tickets. These rates are only available for the routes listed above.
Earning and Redeeming Enrich Miles with MASWings
MASWings like Firefly have some specific earning rates and they don’t tally with the usual Malaysia Airlines rates, but you can get headline rates of up to 140% for the miles flown in Business Class (Domestic and International):
For Enrich Mile redemptions MASWings follows the regular Malaysia Airlines rates outside of this promotion so they are also revenue based. More details can be found here:
We’re Looking for a Review of MASWings
If you’ve got a flight with MASWings coming up please get in touch via the comments below as we’d love to get a review of a couple of their flights as unlike Firefly I’ve never flown with them and I’m more than curious.
