Trying to crack the LifeMiles secret code to Europe

A couple of months ago, we published a post called The secret LifeMiles award chart. In that post, we demonstrated how LifeMiles award pricing didn’t fit what one would expect based on their (unavailable at that time) award chart.

The secret LifeMiles award chart

Let me start by saying that this post does not contain the secret LifeMiles award chart. But it does contain a convincing case that one may exist. Update: As pointed out by nfd and SteveH in the comments, there is currently a LifeMiles promo going for up to 31% off on Star Alliance flights. That explains much of the odd pricing in this post and likely shoots down the theory of a new award chart. However,…

Does LifeMiles play favorites?

Avianca LifeMiles apparently has favorites. Greg has written about how Avianca LifeMiles mixed-cabin awards can be advantageous (See: Avianca LifeMiles’ awesome mixed-cabin award pricing. First class for less). In that post, Greg discovered that adding an economy class segment beyond your intended destination could decrease the overall cost of your ticket.
