    LM award cancellation fee waived for Covid-19 (various reasons)

    Oh that's good. When I cancelled mine they didn't tell me there would be a 5-month wait and I thought the taxes had somehow been eaten up in random other charges. I was just happy to get my points back without the cancellation fee that I didn't pursue it.

    Avianca "Lifemiles" - Questions and Discussion

    After many more emails, they've stated outright that there is no actual reason for the random extra cost of the points for my flights. They tell me that the points plus pay cost is "sometimes different from the website" for no apparent reason that they can tell me, and keep going back to the...

    Avianca "Lifemiles" - Questions and Discussion

    Thanks for the response from others. They finally got back to me on email and said "you agreed to the number so we won't change it". No reason for why it was different to the stated amount on the website, so I'm continuing to investigate. Sigh!

    Avianca "Lifemiles" - Questions and Discussion

    Has anyone had a problem with a screenshot booking where LM have charged the wrong amount for points + pay? I booked a PER-SIN-IST-FRA booking yesterday using the screenshot method and couldn't find a PER-FRA availability online to do the screenshot of the points + pay so I said the number of...

    No more card retention teams ?

    Point of data - I've been looking to move to a lower-fee card, and so rang Virgin Money twice over the past month to discuss cancelling my card. As per the new regs, I was offered no sweeteners of anything being waived, even when I said that the high annual fee was the reason I was thinking to...

    Avianca "Lifemiles" - Questions and Discussion

    I tried an email to support about my cancelled flight with a suggested replacement, and they said I needed to call the Involuntary Changes department. Cross fingers it's an easy swap.

    PER-SIN-BKK-CAI (SQ, SQ, MS) J - 85K plus $96.67US Although the flights showed online they gave me an error when I went to book, so had to screenshot and email for a manual booking. The email with the booking to check said to call them (in the past they had always called me). Called using...

    Egyptair or Turkish Air long haul J?

    Hi all, I'm planning a trip to Egypt later this year and booking flights on points... I can get home to Perth with a combo involving either EgyptAir or Turkish Airlines, depending on the day. I've flown both, but only short haul. Can anyone shed light on a comparison between the two in long haul...

    Advice on champagne

    As others have said, the Jansz is a nice drop, or if she likes NZ whites, the Cloudy Bay Pelorus is one of our faves: https://www.danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_114732/cloudy-bay-pelorus.jsp;jsessionid=2DD30689158DD757687CA606E3B2028C.ncdlmorasp1301?bmUID=lLVmlOM
