CNN reports that a passenger named Haven was awarded 1 million miles for flying just once on Cebu Pacific Air.  And it was her first-ever flight on ANY airline!

That’s because Haven was born on that flight!

Cebu Pacific Air’s CEO awarded Haven 1 million GetGo loyalty points that never expire to share with her family.

How To Earn 1 Million Miles With 1 Flight Extremely Targeted

By Being Born on a Cebu Pacific Air Flight, Haven Earned 1 Million Miles That Never Expire

Are you planning to have a child?  I’ll explain if this a good way to earn miles!

Thank you to Million Mile Secrets reader Dr. Ko for tweeting me this terrific news!

Haven was born 4 hours into a Cebu Pacific Air flight from Dubai to Manila.  She deplaned from “Mommy Air” ~5 weeks early.

Two nurses who were passengers on the flight delivered the baby alongside the cabin crew of the low-cost airline.

Is This a Good Mile Earning Strategy?

No.  While some airlines have awarded perks and miles for giving birth on their airplanes, I do NOT recommend flying constantly while 9 months pregnant just to earn “unexpected” miles when you’re expecting.

This may have been a limited-time offer targeted to one baby.

Also, it’s likely you can only earn the baby bonus once per lifetime.  I suspect Haven’s mother can’t get the miles again by having her next child on the same airline.

At this time it’s not certain if birthing twins would get you 2 million miles on Cebu Pacific Air.

Will Other Budget Airlines Follow Suit?

I hope so!

But remember, if your baby is born while flying Spirit Airlines you will be charged a $199 delivery fee.

Just kidding.  😉

Congratulations to Haven and her family!  You’ve got a great start getting Big Travel with Small Money!
