Are Business Rewards Miles credited automatically after a flight?

Business Rewards Miles are calculated on the 18th of each month for travel completed in the previous month. Miles are calculated from where your journey begins and ends. Therefore, instead of receiving miles after each sector flown, you will be credited for miles after each leg of your journey (outbound and inbound). 

For example, on a return flight between Dubai and London:

  • Travel Dubai–London on February 27, 2014: Business Rewards Miles will be credited on March 18, 2014. 
  • Travel London–Dubai on March 3, 2014: Business Rewards Miles will be credited on April 18, 2014.

A round-trip flight between London and Sydney:

  • Travel London–Dubai on February 27, 2014 and Dubai–Sydney on March 3, 2014: Business Rewards Miles will be credited on April 18, 2014. 
  • Travel Sydney–Dubai on May 4, 2014, and Dubai–London on the June 15, 2014: Business Rewards Miles will be credited on July 18, 2014.
