2X, 3X: in the context of this LifeMiles thread, 2X and 3X refer to any 2nd and 3rd legs of a one-way award ticket.

LifeMiles' Star Alliance Award Chart

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).

I'm sorry, so would you like me to spell out all the tricked routes? Would that be better content?

It definitely would be better content, but no, let's pass on spelling out for now. Hints/tips would be nice, but I think you're not into that. Thanks for offering, though, and apologies for interrupting your sleep!

For the return trip, I just now saw that the vile movie character never ceases to amaze. It is not only cheaper than the outbound, it's also only 5K more in J than in Y.

There are other things that are widely spread, further than one might think. Just take the Hula for example or the famous Mr. d'Urville!

The above was posted on the main thread. I don't want to clutter it up and it might be trick-talk anyway, so took it into this thread. Just wondering if we can figure out what wheresmybagba is talking about. So starting with the most logical - his/her location. These are the routes that LifeMiles offers when selecting SQ out of MEL, with at least one award available in the next 7 months. Does anyone see anything "interesting" here (other than that LM can combine SQ with Avianca/Taca via BCN etc. Or perhaps that's in fact what he/she was talking about?). I'll gather and post the routes out of SIN next, and does anyone have suggestions for other origins to check out?

Yes, I did remove one line to make an obvious trick not so conspicuous... ;)

Thanks very much!

Amusingly, TYO-BLR is coming out as 25,000 miles, which just makes me scratch my head...

Wow that's a long list. Perhaps we'd be better off listing the destinations that do NOT show any J/F availability at all...
How did u find this info?

WOW. I was sure I already knew them all, but this evening I found a 12.5K C1-C2 that I don't recall anyone mentioning. I was looking at availability departing from the place where the member with the fictitious name lives. That's when I saw it. It's also plentifully available from other origins in the place that we blame, as well as at least one in the good ol'.
