There's some good news for air travelers: it seems to be getting easier to actually get a seat on a plane from reward points. That's the main takeaway from an annual ranking of the efficiency of frequent flyer programs at 25 of the world's biggest airlines. Second overall was Air Canada, with a score of 96.4 per cent when booking with Aeroplan points. Airlines used to reward travelers based on how far they flew — hence the frequent flyer "miles" that passengers earn. Other airline reward programs with scores above 90 per cent include Turkish Airlines, JetBlue, Lufthansa and Qantas.
