lifemiles lock and fly
« on: January 07, 2020, 09:27:29 AM »

Now you can lock the mileage today and redeem later for Avianca flights.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could set-aside your seat and lock-in that fare for a while without actually redeeming the required miles? LifeMiles’ new Lock and Fly makes this possible.

With Lock and Fly, you can ensure the seat(s) won’t get sold, and the mileage won’t go up, giving you time to:

Coordinate with friends or family before booking, helping to avoid costly change fees
Transfer your bank points to miles, or qualify for a welcome bonus via a new LifeMiles credit card, to top up your balance before redeeming
You can lock the mileage for 3 days for as little as US$8.00* and complete the redemption as soon as you confirm the trip or complete the required miles to redeem the ticket; or if you need more time, you can Lock and Fly for a longer period too
