If you have ever taken advantage of the Avianca LifeMiles buy
miles bonuses that we frequently post here on Rewards Canada and let
you know that they are a great way to get Star Alliance flights for
cheap you’ll be happy with the latest news from the program! One
sticking point with the program up until now is that they did not allow
mixed cabin awards. Now they do which means more flights open up for you
to use your LifeMiles. You will, of course pay the higher amount of
miles of the highest fare class that is on your itinerary but at least
you now have the option of using your miles in this fashion without
having to book separate awards. (ie long haul Biz Class North America to
Frankfurt connecting to Rome in Economy) Source: One Mile at a Time
