One of the ways to use your air miles is to burn them for premium cabin award redemptions. However, where your miles can get you to differ from frequent flyer program to program. From the Star Alliance pack, Avianca’s LifeMiles can offer amazing value on bookings. You can either earn miles by flying or buy miles outright. A couple of weeks ago, there was a crazy good Lifemiles promotion which introduced LifeMiles to many of our readers for the first time.
Currently, there is a targeted LifeMiles purchase bonus promotion going on where you can receive up to 140% more miles when you buy miles, bringing the cost to about INR 1/ USD 0.0014 per mile.
And with all those miles, you can book some incredible award flights.
Mumbai – Tokyo one-way in ANA Business Class for 48,000 LifeMiles
For 48,000 LifeMiles, you can fly to Tokyo from Mumbai on All Nippon Airways. If you were paying cash, the same flight would’ve cost you close to INR 138,399 (USD 2,016). That’s a 65% saving right there.
Delhi – Munich one-way in Lufthansa Business Class for 45,000 LifeMiles
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.
Delhi – Istanbul one-way in Turkish Airline Business Class for 45,000 LifeMiles
You can fly pretty to every part of the world via Istanbul on Turkish Airlines. Arrive at their new airport in style for just 45,000 LifeMiles when you fly from Delhi in Business class. If you were paying cash, you’d get the same ticket for around INR 1,08,000. So by going the LifeMiles way, you cut your cost by half!
