Best program for me?
Hi, I’m new here.
Let me expain a little, I usually fly 1 time a year, at least 15 days. The big problem is that I can’t decide when, So I was thinking a way to obtain miles and redeem it to flights.
Searching I found alaska airlines program, which seems very nice, but the problem is that I live in argentina, and if I want to go to europe, I need to do one stop somewhere in USA, then fly to europe, then again to usa, then argentina, so I will need a lot of miles.
AA and lifemiles programs are on the watch list, but with alaska I can purchase miles with no limit.
So what do you think? which one should you stay?
Avianca flies direct to Europe on newer 787 and Lifemiles are really inexpensive when on sale, like right now. AK lowest price is usually around 2.1 cents and Lifemiles around 1.5 cents, even less right now. No limit on them either. AA can go for 1.8 cents on a sale but they have a limit of 150,000 per year. With AA you can fly LAN/TAM direct. Go on Avianca’s site and see what availability is like from where you live to where you want to go. Then try LAN. Whichever has better availability then go with that one. It doesn’t matter how inexpensive something is if you can’t get it. Good luck
