Some airlines concentrate on families and give them the opportunity to combine the individually collected miles and allow one family member to use them for various services on the ground and in the air: flight tickets, upgrading tickets, use of airport lounges, to check in extra luggage, to rent a car, to rent a hotel room or for purchasing flight tickets from one of the members of the alliance organization.

Quatar Airlines for example, allows the registration of nine family members and lets them combine their air miles for a selected family member. A family member is regarded as a child above the age of 2 years, a spouse or a parent in this case. Turkish Airlines takes children between the ages of 1 to 2 into account and Emirates even offers the opportunity to transfer air miles between friends.
