How to Sign in to Your Mileage Club Account
Go to the ANA homepage and enter your ANA number and password to log in to your account.
Viewing Your Account Activity
ANA allows you to view 12 months of activity in your account. To view your account activity, log in, click the “Mileage Balance” tab on the right side of your account page, and then click “Miles” on the left side of your account page.
ANA miles expire at the end of the 36th month in which the miles were earned.
For example, if you earn ANA miles on September 16, 2018, the miles will expire September 30, 2021.
The only way to extend the expiration of your ANA miles is to hold ANA Diamond member status.

Value of Mileage Club Elite Status
ANA’s elite status is not as relevant for U.S.-based travelers as holding elite status is with a major U.S. airline.
In order to receive the most value out of ANA elite status, you will need to be either a Japan-based flyer, or a regular flyer of ANA or Star Alliance flights to Japan.
Earning Mileage Club Elite Status
ANA uses a point system to qualify for elite status tiers. The points are called Premium Points, and they’re earned when flying ANA or Star Alliance partner flights between January and December.
The airline miles and Premium Points you earn when flying are separate. Miles are based on your cabin class and the distance that you flew. Premium Points are based on a convoluted calculation and relate to your elite status.
Premium Points are based on 4 factors:
- Basic segment mileage
- Mileage accrual rate by booking class and fare type/rule
- Route Ratio
- Boarding Points
Basic segment mileage is the number of miles that you flew — pretty straightforward.
Mileage accrual rate by booking class and fare type/rule is based on the type of airline ticket you purchased. All cabin classes typically have letters associated with the type of fare you’re buying, which translates into a certain percentage of miles that you will earn.
Route Ratio is a multiplier based on the route. Domestic Japan flights earn 2x, ANA flights between Japan and Asia or Japan and Oceania earn 1.5x, and other ANA or Star Alliance flights earn 1x.
Boarding Points are the points you earn based on your cabin class and type of airfare. ANA provides guidance on how many points you will earn here.
To summarize, ANA awards flight miles and Premium Points, and the airline has a Premium Points Simulation to help you calculate the number of miles and points you will earn.
Hot Tip: First National Bank of Omaha’s ANA credit card is a way to earn additional Premium Points that count toward your ANA elite status.
