Motion Passed: Create a Avianca/Taca Lifemiles Forum

Moved by SkiAdcock and seconded by jackal:

"The TalkBoard recommends to the Community Director the creation of a Avianca/Taca Lifemiles Forum.

This vote will close on September 25, 2012, at 12:23pm or after all TalkBoard members have registered their vote, whichever comes first.

Per the TalkBoard Guidelines:

A motion shall pass if at least two-thirds of the yes or no votes cast by TalkBoard members are ‘yes’ and a majority of the total TalkBoard membership votes 'yes.'

The purpose of posting voting topics in the public TalkBoard Topics forum is to solicit member feedback on any motions that are up for a vote and to allow for comments after a vote is made. It is at the sole discretion of the individual TalkBoard members whether they choose to post in the public discussion thread, there being no requirement to do so.

So while there is already a thread and discussion on this general topic and it is safe to assume that TalkBoard members have reviewed that thread, this thread is about this specific motion.

Please feel free to post questions, comments or any other sort of feedback in this thread, or in the other discussion thread. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/talkb...les-forum.html

We NEED a Lifemiles forum. Way too much stuff to talk about to be lumped in with the rest of the South America carriers.

The only reason I can think of having a Lifemiles forum is because of them becoming a popular FF program for *A redemptions. Other than that, I don't see many people actually flying them. So, I think we should have one if BMI even has one...

I see this as a positive addition to FT and hope TB feels the same way.

I also support the motion. Don't know if I have a vote, but I fly taca to central america a couple times a year. Now that they are in the *A I plan to use them more and would love to see dedicated discussion.

Yet another forum... So we all understand that 10k miles MUST be on TA/AV metal to get any *A status... How many ex-BD folks (me including) would fly to BOG/LIM/GYE/UIO/PTY/SJO to get status??? I vote against... Sorry...
