So far there has been a whirlwind of changes in the airline world in 2014, and it’s only May! We’ve seen airlines join new alliances and devalue their frequent flyer programs, all in addition to the colossal change that took place this year in the form of the American and US Airways merger.

In light of all these changes, I thought it was time to update my consolidated list of airline award charts and partner lists. Some items on the list are not award charts per se, because programs like Avios price award flights based on distance and have calculators you can use to find the required number of miles for specific redemptions, so I included those instead. This resource gives TPG readers access to all the links for award charts in one place, so bookmark and use it!

The list doesn’t cover every single airline, but includes those that readers are most likely to fly and have miles with, and more information will be added to the list periodically. Feel free to comment below with links to any other program or ideas to enhance this post, or if there are other resources you’d like to see included on TPG.
