What to do with 4 unused C-class tickets?

Was not able to use 4 C-class tickets on TACA, due to scheduling problems with the 4 people they were issued for. Is there any point in recrediting them ... and spend extra $$$? It would be nice to at least change them into a few hotel points or similar. Or should I just forgo the 200'000 LP miles?

If all is to no avail, I was thinking at least to return the tickets to GP with a note telling them that I did not want them having to pay TACA, since we did not use them.

Since GP and Taca have severed their relations, I do not think that it will be possible to get unused Taca awards re-credited to GP, even if you wanted to.

Would it at least help GP, if I return the tickets, as they might not get charged for them by TACA. Or do they get charged only after the flights have been taken?

Are the miles unused from the Run that are still sitting by GP good for anything?

I used Tacas Awards Chart which took more Miles then GPs add to that 2 Biz tkts that were for after 12/31 that I wasnt able to squeeze in before that, and I have around 140k left over.

Why not pay off your credit cards?

Assuming they are not Bonus Miles from the run or other bonus promotion why not use GP's great new Miles-as--Money to Pay Off your credit cards where your 200k would be worth I think around $1300 [ .0065 cents/mile] But alas if they are bonus miles not earned or transfered miles then you can't do this. I got my 1,000,000 for .001 cents/mile so .0065 would have been a nice 'profit' if the bonus miles could be used.
