Acceptable sale with Avianca from Los Angeles to Santiago de Chile via Bogota, Colombia. Avianca is getting rid of Business class later this year and service levels remain at pathetic levels with limited service quality. Here are some links to Trip Reports on Avianca on their Boeing 787 from GRU-BOG but they are pre-Covid. Buyer beware as 3/4 segments are on their Boeing 787 so you would have a lieflat seat with one on their Airbus 320 which sometimes is just a blocked middle seat.
These fares book into A class (XL in Avianca terms) which earns 100% in most Star Alliance programs and gives you 1/5 of distance as PQPs for United. In the case of the sample below LAX-BOG-LAX you would earn 6956 miles and 1392 PQPs. BOG-SCL would earn 5258 miles and 1052 PQPs. So you would earn a grand total of 12214 miles and 2443 PQPs.
