Conclusion

I don’t think that it is a coincidence that the conversion of Le Club Accorhotels points to Cathay Pacific, Thai and Singapore Airlines miles was improved by 60%. All the hotel chains are trying to attract more Asian clientele and expanding rapidly in APAC.

The Avios collectors are really being hurt here. This is the second devaluation of Le Club Accorhotels points to Iberia Avios this year. It started at 2 points to 5 Avios at the turn of the year and was lowered to one Avios per one point in March.

Now, you would need 10 points to get the same 5 Avios. This is a devaluation of whopping 80% within 6 months if you have been converting Le Club Accorhotels points to Avios.
