Where to credit Avianca Business Promo flights
First time we will fly Avianca (to Santiago). I purchased Business Promo tickets on Avianca’s website (was a pain, had to call in to actually pay for the ticket). On the Avianca website it says that I can earn 100%+50% LifeMiles miles for Business Promo tickets. Looking at United’s award chart for partner airlines, it only earns (for discounted business class fares) 100% of flown miles.
I do not have any Lifemiles miles, but have over a 100k United miles..
What would you the experts recommend I credit these miles: LifeMiles or MileagePlus?
[USER=1592]@Daniel B[/USER], it really depends on what your future goals are, how many miles you’d need etc. Will you be able to easily top up your lifemiles account if you need additional miles for a trip? That would probably be my biggest concern.

To be honest, the only way I could top up those miles would be by buying them. But after the disappointing booking process (the website did not take me to the payment page, just logged me out, I had to call Avianca and waste 2 hours before someone actually took the payment), I doubt that I would go out of my way to book award tickets through them.
Then probably best off crediting to UA.
