Cash & Miles redemptions: buying the max (60%) isn't always the best deal (unless you're purchasing all miles right there). Check here for the best CPM.

Beware of Cabotage: LifeMiles has been known to issue tickets that constitute Cabotage, and at least one instance of denied boarding has been reported, stranding the passenger. An easily-seen example is travel on Copa from LAX to SJU (via PTY).

LM F and J routes (and the occasional trick-it)

Oh it's definitely a FD. I don't want to fly economy that long, no matter how good the price, unless the mileage earned is extremely valuable. I'm spoiled (just got off a CX F flight). Plus, it doesn't credit well, and even then only to DL or some even worse program. If it credited to LM, though...

No Kitty??

Leaving from northern neighbor's house and trying to visit candy animal. I really would like to have Kitty accompany me on the trip. She initially denied the existence of candy animal, but gave in after some "persuation". Still, couldn't make the trip happen. So, is Kitty actually banished from visiting candy animal?

Cheers

I think any pets need to be reported to the carrier but I don't think you would need a seat .

US <> CA services need to be operated by a US or CA carrier.

Thanks for pointing that out, Oliver! However, aren't many of the "tricks" (especially the boomerangs) also in violation of the above rule? So LM is selectively enforcing certain rules on certain routes?

Well this is just plain wrong (unless you mean California).

No there aren't. A vast majority of boomerangs do NOT violate any cabotage rules (LM shows those as sold out without even checking the inventory).

TBH, so much has been written on this in the past week or two and I don't think I'm the only who's getting a bit sick of the same question again and again. Please read back a few pages everything you need to know is precisely explained. If you wish to check a particular route, maybe start a new cabbage thread.

United we Stand

Was able to confirm the Mumbai Local to Tokyo with the MTA local in the Big Apple as a pleasant surprise. Think might just stick to the MTA and skip Tokyo

I was refering to the "Routes between countries A and B can only be served by carriers from A or B" comment earlier.

Thanks for your input, Scibuff!

Well, that's the thing, routes between countries A and B can be served by anyone
