Earlier this week I wrote about the Lifemiles award sale, which is valid for bookings made through tomorrow.

I tested pricing on many of the routes, but I failed to find anything in business class from JFK to Brussels on Brussels Airlines, even when United.com showed there was availability. The pricing on the sale page was also wonky, showing that it was normally 22K miles in business class and was on sale for 18,700 miles. Chalking it up to a glitch, I didn’t mention it in the post.

However, DDF member yanky1 pointed out that although the outbound leg isn’t bookable in business class, the return leg from Brussels to JFK is bookable and it’s on sale for just 25,500 miles one-way in business class!

Brussels Airlines flies A330s on the route with staggered lie-flat seating in alternating 1-2-1 and 2-1-2 configuration.

When you search on Lifemiles’ site, change from Smart Search to Star Alliance:




Best of all, availability is wide open, with up to 6 available seats per flight as per United’s legacy award calendar, which is my preferred method for searching for Star Alliance availability. While United charges 75K miles for the flight (or more close-in), it’s just 25.5K when booked via Lifemiles!


While flights from Brussels to JFK can easily be had for 25.5K Lifemiles in business class, the JFK to Brussels flights don’t appear to have any business availability via Lifemiles. I was only successful in getting the JFK to Brussels flight to show as available in economy for 22K Lifemiles.

If you want to fly in business class from JFK to Brussels, there is availability to book with other Star Alliance airline miles, such as for 60K Air Canada miles each way.

Lifemiles probably gonna cancel all tickets booked today knowing them. Even not these mistake ones because they won’t know how to figure it out

Ed Travel

United shows them but I can’t find them on Lifemiles 🙁

Ed Travel

I found one! Do the transfer takes place immediately?


Whats the best points way to fly from BRU to TLV?


chances this will be live in 72 hours? (Est. Transfer Time from Amex)


Transferred points from capital one, I see it’s on my LifeMiles transactions, but still not showing in my Balance. What’s the timeframe for points transfer with them ?


I transferred miles from Capital One. Transfer went through instantly and shows in my LifeMiles statement as October activity. But my balance still shows as 0.

Frustrating, anyone else experience this?


Good idea to mention the cancellation fees


What are the cancelation fee for LM for business class fares?


Making a change to a LifeMiles award ticket will cost you $150, regardless of what the change is. Redepositing your ticket, meanwhile, will cost you $50-200. You can expect to pay around $50 for a short haul economy award ticket, while you can expect to pay $200 for a long haul first or business class ticket.

Confirming capital venture x transfer in like 5 to 10 minutes, I snatch one. Thanks Dan!


Are these tickets cancellable?


Good luck with the customer support, to cancel. But there redemption rates are great so we deal with it


is amex transfer immediate?


transferred the amex points. waiting for it to hit to book. Anyone else transfer from amex for this and how long did it take to hit your LM account?


Just transfered from amex posted instantly


Strange, AwardWallet shows the transfer. LM activity shows the transfer but balance in LM still shows 0 and can’t book yet ;(


Finally transferred! Booked for 4 returning from Spring Break!


Is there 24 hours free cancelation?


Yes to both flights


Is it easy to add an infant with lifemiles?


Just booked thanks so much!!
Now gotta work on finding availability for the way there


Does anybody know how to add the the flight from tlv to bru so it should be connecting or it is not possible.


Anyone? @dan


Booked! Thanks dan. Now I need a cheap flight TLV-BRU on Dec. 5 – any ideas?


would a 1 hour 20 minute connection in Brussels be anough time to transfer?


Same question I have


booked 2 tickets, thanx dan!!!!


why is it only giving me the option of combining 14000 miles with money?




Just booked. Transferred from Amex instantly! (Got a flight from TLV for $190) Can I choose my seat? How do I request a kosher meal? Neither of these options show up when I go to manage my reservation.


Manage your booking with brussels airlines.
Very convenient chat option if you can’t find what you need online


How do I search the tlv to brussels on lifemiles without with paying and not using points


Is it possible to have the luggage transferred from the tlv to the jfk flight even if you booked it separately?


Booked three tickets at end of February. We already have SFO-TLV Polaris Award tickets (Unicorn!), so this BRU-JFK will be the centerpiece of our return trip.

Thanks, Dan. Good Shabbos!


Of course my Capital One transfer of points this morning, and now my desperate Amex transfer both didn’t clear today… at least there’s some decent uses of LifeMiles points.
Shabbat Shalom and hoping some other fun LifeMiles redemption options come up soon


found TLV-BRU in J for $250
Tip: calling Brussels to link the tickets use the 1800 #: 1800-401-1801 they pick up right away – main call center didn’t pick up.
