Airline credit cards

we are moving to CH in June and although we already have UBS and HSBC credit cards I am wondering if anyone has any credit cards that get good amounts of airline miles. We are going to re-address the whole banking thing when we move so may swap cards, any advice ?

Gives miles on the Swiss/Lufthansa Miles & More programme.
Free if you are at Senator level or above (i.e. Star Gold)

well we are all over the place at the moment. I have gold status with Singapore Airlines and Silver with BA, husband had PPS with Singapore and Silver with BA too. He is starting to build up his miles and more status and I'm thinking I might do the same. As we will be based in CH we will be flying with Swiss a lot more.

Snoopy - thanks for the link.

Re: Airline credit cards

One of the biggest drawbacks of most Swiss-issued airline credit cards is the relatively poor earning ratio of 1 mile per CHF 2 spent.

If you're serious about earning miles and depending on your spending habits you may want to keep some of the foreign issued credit cards.
