LM F and J routes (and the occasional trick-it) Rebooted v2.0
 
Felow Lifemile enthusiasts,

following a rather nasty turn in the previous thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/avian...nal-trick.html

The senior mods (who have the pleasure of moderating this corner of FT) decided to reboot the thread and start afresh.

So... share away, in whatever trick(y) language you can find. Keep in mind that this is FT, and while sharing (of opinions, tricks, ideas, opinions etc) is explicitly desired and allowed, one simple rule applies:

If you don't have anything to say on the topic, just don't say it.

Talking about others, the ethics or it all and similar personal things remains off topic and will be deleted.

So trick away!

Regards Oliver2002
Senior Mod

Thanks for restarting the thread. I saw the other one got locked, and was concerned we would lose this thread entirely, though I suspect there may be somewhat less to discuss in it now, but nevertheless - it is valuable to continue this discussion.

So I'm still seeing some availability C5 at good value though Airport taxes is rather exorbitant.

I'm wondering when the guillotine will fall on the piano teacher

How can you be seeing YQ when YQ is not levied by LM?

Airport taxes I meant!

LM is a bit weird with the airport taxes in some places (but of course LM is weird with almost everything, that's why we are here no?). One of the no longer working boomerangs I looked at using, charged taxes at my connection point as though I was originating there. It wasn't an error with the airport, as doing a more linear connection gave a more accurate accounting of the taxes. I wonder if something similar is happening here?

And probably a good idea to do a thread reboot at this point.

I am not seeing any changes at all. I have never tried to fly cabbages though with a layover at a Straßenbahnhaltestelle.

All the "interesting" routes that I hoped to book are still there including chainy bears and cool C3 routes.

my question was the last in the old thread so I will repeat:

I would like to be advised if in the current situation with LM is a good idea to buy miles + bonuses, it's another 6 days to go.

Rule of the thumb is to buy and redeem immediately. If you see flights that are of interest to you and are available, buy and book asap.

Nobody can possibly know the answer to this in terms of where you see value in LM, how averse to risk you are and what are the chances of LM reducing the value that you currently find in the programme.

Alot of the big baby boomers are gone between C3P0 and R2C2

Yeah, I wouldn't dare buy miles at this point unless I was booking something near immediately or knew something would be readily available. We are in a period of great uncertainty.

oliver2002 May 26, 14 12:43 pm

LM is still great value even without tricks. But there are sudden devaluations possible anytime, so only buy and book.

Also make sure that there isn't any phantom availability, as that may be the case with some routes on LM.

Problem is most of the good stuff is released a few days before departure, ahh so much pressure!!!
