Emirates Skywards: Earning Miles and Miles Accelerator

What are the differences between 'Skywards Flex' and 'Skywards Saver' fares?

A Skywards Saver fare is an Emirates fare with any of the following conditions:
(a) eligibility restrictions (such as fares for students, seniors, or companions)
(b) a limited period in which you can purchase the ticket
(c) limited seat availability and restricted conditions (such as minimum/maximum stay, flight restrictions or advance purchase)

If you are taking a trip which is booked as a single journey but involves flying with different carriers that include Emirates, then Saver fare conditions will apply.

Saver fares earn 50% of base Miles – this applies to both Skywards Miles and Tier Miles.

A Skywards Flex fare does not include any eligibility or purchase restrictions. This type of fare also earns you more Miles than a Saver fare. Flex fares earn 100% of base Miles – this applies to both Skywards Miles and Tier Miles. In addition, if you want to upgrade to a higher class, Flex tickets can be upgraded for fewer Skywards Miles.
