Use this tool to estimate the skymiles you’ll earn on your next flight.

## How the Skymiles Estimator Works

This Skymiles Estimator calculates the approximate number of miles you can earn on a flight based on several parameters such as the distance of your trip, fare class, elite status, and actual miles flown.

### How to Use It

- Enter the total distance in miles of your flight.
- Select your fare class from Economy, Premium Economy, Business, or First.
- Select your elite status if you have any.
- Enter the actual miles flown.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see your estimated Skymiles.

### How It Calculates the Results

The estimator uses the base distance to calculate the primary miles. Your fare class and elite status provide multipliers to this base value. The formula used is:

**Estimated Skymiles = Base Distance * Fare Class Multiplier * Elite Status Multiplier**

Actual miles flown also factor into the final calculation, giving a more precise estimate.

### Limitations

While this estimator gives a good approximation, the actual miles earned may vary based on specific airline policies, seasonal promotions, and other factors not accounted for in this basic calculator.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculate Skymiles for a Round Trip Flight

Enter the departure and destination airports, along with the class of service, to estimate the total Skymiles you will earn for a round trip flight. The calculator will factor in the distance between the airports and the class multiplier to give you an accurate estimate.

### Estimate Skymiles for Multi-City Itinerary

For multi-city trips, input the details for each leg of the journey to calculate the total Skymiles you can earn. The calculator will consider the distance for each segment and the class of service to provide an aggregated estimation of your Skymiles.

### Projection of Skymiles for a One-Way Flight

If you need to determine the Skymiles for a one-way trip, simply input the departure and arrival airports, along with the class of service, to get an estimation. The calculator will include the specific distance between the cities and the applicable class multiplier.

### Calculate Skymiles for a Domestic Flight

For domestic flights, enter the origin and destination airports, as well as the class of service, to compute the Skymiles you can earn. The calculator will take into account the distance of the domestic route and the appropriate class multiplier.

### Estimate Skymiles for an International Flight

If you are flying internationally, provide the departure and arrival airports, along with the class of service, to receive an estimate of your Skymiles. The calculator considers the longer distances of international routes and the corresponding class multiplier for accurate projections.

### Projection of Skymiles for a Flight with Layovers

When your itinerary includes layovers, input the details of each leg, including layover airports and class of service, to calculate the total Skymiles. The calculator will sum up the distances for each segment and factor in the class multiplier for an overall estimation.

### Estimate Skymiles for Partner Airline Flights

If you are flying with a Delta partner airline, input the necessary flight details to calculate the Skymiles you can earn. The calculator will adjust for partner airline routes and apply the corresponding class multiplier to provide an accurate projection of your Skymiles.

### Calculate Skymiles for a Last-Minute Booking

For last-minute flights, enter the departure and arrival airports, along with the class of service, to determine the Skymiles you will earn. The calculator takes into consideration the distance of the flight and the class multiplier, even for bookings made close to the travel date.

### Projection of Skymiles for Upgraded Seats

If you plan to upgrade your seat, input the original and upgraded class of service to calculate the additional Skymiles you can earn. The calculator factors in the class differentials and the length of the flight to provide an estimation of the bonus Skymiles from the upgrade.

### Estimate Skymiles for a Mileage Run

For mileage runs aimed at accumulating Skymiles, input the itinerary details to calculate the total Skymiles you can earn from the trip. The calculator considers the distances covered and the class of service to give you an accurate projection of the Skymiles accrued during the mileage run.
