Ever wonder what route is the best bang for your buck in SQuites?

Well, wonder no longer, as I had too much time on my hands no time today, but crunched all the numbers anyway, and here are the results.

The colored numbers represent the amount of SQ miles that are required per mile flown in Suites. Lower the better.



Notes:

Best overall routes are ex-JFK (except for FRA) and ex-AKL.

However, the likelihood of scoring 2 savers JFK<>FRA<>SIN<>?? is next to nothing, thus leaving the best practical route as AKL<>SIN<>HKG/NRT/ZRH/CDG.

Did you make an updated chart after the latest devaluation?

Funny you should ask -- I just came across that chart and filed it away in my "old" folder.

I guess one day I should probably update it.

If you send me the spreadsheet I may find some time to update it.
