Marriott Rewards has various Travel Packages redemption options where for instance you get a 7 night hotel award + a variable number of airline miles in your chosen airline for a set number of points.

In my opinion, this is the best way to use Marriott Rewards points. You get a 7 night hotel award and then can “purchase” airlines miles at ONE Marriott Rewards point per ONE mile with Package 1 airlines.

Avianca LifeMiles learned (thankfully) from their previous award chart changes (unannounced and denied that there had been changes at all) and announced back in July (read here and here) their new award chart that is effective on October 15, 2014.

You can still redeem at the old values today and tomorrow. Note that not all awards went up. You should check route by route whether it makes sense to redeem now or on October 15 when the new award chart is in place.

LifeMiles Award Ticket Success: Copa Panama – Havana

As I was in Panama this last week and needed to get to Cancun for this coming weekend, I decided to visit Havana. I have been here before, so just decided to stay for a few days. Please don’t get me started about the internet connectivity here.

Beyond using my LifeMiles for getting from Bangkok to Buenos Aires (access the piece here), it did not usually make any sense to use miles from Oneworld or Star Alliance programs for travel within South/Central America. It has always been a better deal to purchase paid tickets and use the allowed stopovers and other flexibilities.

Late last week, I was researching award and paid ticket options from Bangkok to Buenos Aires for the middle of this week, as I wanted to get to South America by Thursday night.

The paid economy class one-way tickets were in the $1,600 to $1,800 range unless I would have hopped to Ho Chi Minh City first and then took a flight to Sao Paulo (this would have required an additional ticket to Buenos Aires) and business class ones were much more.

Avianca sent out strangely worded out emails late last week about changes coming to its award charts on October 15, 2014, and I wrote about them here.

It is extremely difficult trying to find the actual award charts on LifeMiles’ website, but they have now released the new chart as well that will be effective on October 15, 2014. This has allowed us to do a side-by-side comparison about the differences.

Avianca LifeMiles seems to have learned something from their award chart fiasco last year (read more here) when the company was claiming that no award levels had been changed, although new award chart with higher mileage requirements was already in place.

EDIT: A LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me a screenshot of his table that is for those living in South America. I have now added it to this post.

This time Avianca sent out somewhat confusing email that I received in Spanish but most should have received the English version.
