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 appreciate the info

Well I must be even less than semi-educated (despite over 40 years having acquired a bachelors degree, a masters degree, a graduate certificate and two postgraduate diplomas).

Sorry but I just don't think rudeness is helpful.

I think it's not that difficult to google the terms but then yes some of us are extremely technologically retarded.

Just like the Munich of the east this one will be discovered too when 000s pile on to book cheap tickets
Munich of the east was gone along with all of China when ZH joined *A, if I'm poking in the rite direction.

And to be honest, I don't get any of the code either. I only know what you're talking about because I know the destinations already.

Hmm... I was not trying to be rude, just pointing you in the right direction. The 'Enjoy-> Air Tickets' page is a well written and annotated (ok, some is spanish, but there is google translate for that) bit of html, that can be read by anyone who has dabbled a bit with programming languages in their past (like me who did very rudimentary C++ and java in college17 years ago). I won't post the link out here in full public view, but the dynredparsocae aspx function can yield a ton of info about the destinations in the LM webpage.

Which one? The one about whom the last dozen posts were, or some other one?

Well, it's just much more expensive than it used to be.

We're clearly not talking about the same thing then...

Edit: Okay if it is what I think it is, it has been dead for quite a while.

I could have /sworn/ it was dead a long time ago... as in I priced it out as the "high" price... must have died and then come back and now died for real...
