Lifemiles Blocking United awards?
is it just me, or is the Avianca Lifemiles website not showing any United award seats. I would think this is something people would notice rather quickly, but I haven’t seen any postings on it anywhere.
eg: even simple domestic economy searches, like IAH-SAT for the coming days show ‘sold out’ on lifemiles.com, but seats available on most flights on aeroplan.com, for example.
I see the same results on lifemiles.com regardless of using ‘Smart Search’, ‘Star Alliance airlines’, or specifically selecting ‘United’ .
[USER=2962]@Bob S.[/USER], Lifemiles can be frustrating. It’s likely a temporary glitch but unless you can find seats on the website you won’t be able to book it. Hopefully it comes back soon.
