This is just my opinion, but I think Thank You points are quite valuable, but they are often under used and overlooked because their use isn’t geared for the casual points user. There’s no United or Delta, but rather Etihad, Singapore, and now Avianca. These programs have tremendous value, but they require a dive further down the rabbit hole than most are comfortable doing. Avianca is a great addition to this flexible points program especially if you’re interested in flying international premium flights, and short haul domestic flights ( which you can now snatch up for just 7500 miles) BYAH!

Lifemiles can be used to fly on Lufthansa First Class – this is one of the programs sweet spots.
- 87k Lifemiles to fly Lufthansa First from North America to Europe.
- This puts a one way ticket in Lufthansa First Class at roughly $1305 + taxes.
- 105k to fly from Europe to South America.
- Lufthansa’s longest flight is from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires on the 747-8i Pictured Below. The 747-8i is truly a fantastic experience that I had the pleasure of flying last year from Frankfurt to LA.
What’s your favorite use of Thank You points?
