My spanish is not good. But according to my understanding only flights originating from Europe will be adjusted?

Says that's an example and that the rest will be "discoverable" when you do an award search on October 15...

Mileage Devaluation Effective Oct. 15 2014 (Europe to Americas)

Changes in Avianca and Star Alliance ticket redemption
From October 15th, 2014, redemption fares for flights with Avianca will change...

Europe to: Central America & Caribbean 60K
Columbia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuadaor 75K
USA, Canada, Mexico & South America 80K

As for changes in air ticket redemption with Star Alliance member airlines, these include reductions up to 15.000 miles and increases up to 11.000 miles in Economy Class; also reductions up to 25.000 miles and increases up to 50.000 miles in Business Class. Both cases apply for roundtrip flights from Europe.

You have to love these two sentences:

"To be sure that our members have the opportunity to understand all changes before these take place, all modifications will be effective from October 15th, 2014."

"To know the exact amount of required miles for each origin and destination, it will be necessary to consult the amount through the redemption system athttps://www.lifemiles.com/eng/use/red/dynredpar.aspx after October 15th, 2014."

So don't be concerned, we are giving you plenty of advance notice that changes are coming. But you won't find out what they are until after they've happened. LOL.

I don't follow what you are checking

Europe to: Central America & Caribbean 60K (currently 65K)
Columbia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuadaor 75K (currently 80K)
USA, Canada, Mexico (Increased but why would you fly AV?)
& South America 80K (currently 90K)

Am I misunderstanding something?

South America

For housekeeping purposes, I'll merge two threads on the same subject.
