Sometimes, you’d have difficulty finding award space. One way to work around this problem is to book a ticket destination closest to your final destination. For example, if you can’t find a redemption between Delhi and Frankfurt, look at Munich instead. A one-way ticket would cost you around INR 1,34,000 (USD 1,952), but you can do the same trip for 45,000 LifeMiles. Munich and Frankfurt are very well connected by rail and roads.

Have you bought or redeemed LifeMiles? What has been your experience with them?


  1. I would be very careful before buying LifeMiles. They have a very very bad website which you don’t know when it will crash. Also they have a even worse call center & last but not least had 2 devaluation’s in last year, also miles expire in a year if you don’t use them. If you don’t have a trip planned don’t buy them. You will definitely lose value. They have been printing miles like anything. Another devaluation is one the way.

    • @Rukmi, seems you had an incident with them. do advise what happened. All of the stuff you wrote here has already been discussed by us before. The website works fine, and in spite of their kinks, they are the best redemptions on Star Alliance.

      • @Ajay, was booking First Class from ORD-BKK. All was good then the website crashed on me before the booking went through. After looking again miles were already taken without any confirmation or nothing. Called the call center was told no English speaking agent is available for 2 days in a row. Finally convinced a Spanish speaking colleague to talk with them and get it sorted. Almost took 5 days to get all that done. Also I think they are going to have a big devaluation very soon looking at the number of the miles they are selling. So unless you are going to redeem the miles in a few months after buying them I won’t recommend buying them. Also being based in US I was lucky to have a Spanish speaking colleague to help me out. Someone in India might not have that luxury.

        • @Rukmi, selling miles is the business model of a lot of mileage programs. That off chance that they will raise redemption rates always exists. That is why we ask people to buy them when they need the miles.

  2. Ashwant,

    I don’t think it’s a right way one way fares. For the example Delhi to Munich, I am seeing a fare of 1.63L for a round trip compared to 1.33L one way
