    Avianca and Taca are pretty much the same as what AviancaTaca LifeMiles members (like me, gave up on UA MP) earn on the cheapest AV/TA fares. Something to keep in mind: Many relatively low-cost AV/TA fares are actually in relatively high fare class “families” – such as the MVD-SFO via LIM/SAL $839 flight I just took 3 weeks ago. A “Benefit” fare that at least in LM earned a 25% RDM/EQM bonus. Most of those $650-900 1-ways or $900-1300 r/ts from US AV/TA gateways to deep South America will get full miles in UA MP or AV/TA LM, and may even get some bonus miles in LM.
