Avianca LifeMiles has tinkered some award regions effective November 12, 2015.
These changes only affect countries/areas in Asia that have been moved from one area to another (likely to close loopholes).
You can access Avianca’s Star Alliance award chart here.
Here’s the old regions:
And here are the new ones:
Here are the changes:
Guam (from South Asia)
Hong Kong (new)
Mariana Islands (new)
Philippines (from South Asia)
East Timor (removed)
Philippines (moved to North Asia)
Guam (moved to North Asia)
Nothing too drastic here. Philippines and Guam moved from South Asia to North Asia. Most airline rewards program classify the Philippines as in the South Asia, so not sure why the need to move it.
LifeMiles used to be a good program, but difficult to find any value right now due to various limitations such as the stupid booking interface, no mixed awards and uncompetitive award chart.
