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).

The elephant is dead. The other one is still alive.

#30 should be modified. This one shouldn´t be mentioned even in a coded way at all.

I'm not really good at trick fares and coded clues and am having a hard time figuring this out - if anyone is willing to share a hint via p.m. it would be appreciated.

After a lot of hard graft reading this and other forums, as well as analysing other websites, I have figured out about 4 or 5 of these tricks which still appear to be live. The clues are difficult at first but they slowly start to make sense.

If anyone has any they would be willing to trade, please pm me?

For those familiar with the C2W phenomenon, here is a current listing of availability. The first column is the final destination and the second is the connections (important because the connecting cities are not available directly as final destinations - anyone know why? - for the unlikely event that you actually want to complete the full course). Of course I removed the connections that make this phenomenal. As noted, this is for those already familiar with it, just to spare you searching; no additional details will be posted.

There may well be other connections to these destinations on other days - I only look at the first award hit.

If replying, please do not clutter by quoting the entire long post.

Should I be able to route WAS-IAH-IST-MUC as a oneway?

Impossible. The distance is almost double compared to a direct WAS-MUC flight. Without looking up MPM, I'm almost 100% certain you would be way, way over.

Do LM agents actually verify that? I'm not too keen about the routing myself however I cant find anything out of the DC area around those days.

Oh you funny You assume some level of intelligence on the part of LM agents They will likely just use the website and see if it pops up. If it does, to hell with rules and you will get it. If it doesn't, you're out of luck. Also, don't bother calling in unless you want to ruin your day. Suggest talking to a hamster instead.
