Avianca is having financial woes, and their approach is to incentivize us to boost their revenue through sales and discounts. I like it. In an era when we’re seeing programs absolutely gut their loyalty programs ( hey AA, UA, and Delta ), which ironically are their most profitable business units, Avianca has chosen a different path. Let’s just call them the Thoreau of air loyalty 😉
What are we talking about?
Not only is Avianca Lifemiles currently running a massive bonus when you buy miles, but we just learned that Avianca has also reduced the price on a number of flights and routes.
Tell me more.
Currently, LifeMiles is offering up to a 30% discount on specific Star Alliance partner flights that operate between select city pairs here in the US and on international economy and business class routes.
