They already increased their required miles amount twice in the last one and a half year. The first increase was for adjusting the regions and the second was a significant increase on all awards, especially first class.

(1) it wouldn't be that surprising
(2) who cares, unless they like double the cost, it will still be the cheapest way to get seats in LH F or SQ J etc...

rhetorical question

surely a rhetorical question.......

yes they will

its like asking if the price of gas will go up over time ....

if you need to ask, think twice, three times before you buy LMs

as an earlier poster observed, only buy if you can redeem immediately

holding brought LM is only a past time for the rich or nave.

Good in theory, but when you sometimes want to book 1 month out and they don't have the promo, get a little difficult. Of course I wouldn't bank more than 50K with them.

It seems like the people are demanding a devaluation, in the nominate benefits thread the affordable awards is winning!
Avianca LifeMiles benefits Poll Thread.

I would nominate:
1. Call center that encourages you to learn Spanish, so you don't need an agent to interpret for another agent.
2. Sudden award cost inflation. Always something to look forward to, like op-ups!
3. Inability to book anything except what the web engine offers.

Edit: I just noticed that was a member suggestion after the original nominations to include "competitive awards". Thank you SingaporeDon, I'm speechless.
