    Earn & redeem KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air

    This month's KrisFlyer newsletter states that it's now possible to earn and use KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air flights (regional subsidiary of Aegean in Greece). I couldn't find much more info about this on the SQ website. Presume the award pricing is the same as the Star Alliance award chart.

    Is it worth redeeming points for Y and W awards? Have to book and fly at short notice and can’t get a J award but combo of Y/W/J might be possible? Is it bad value to use points for awards below J?
