What Airline Do You Want to Be a Star Alliance Mileage Millionaire?

21 people will become Star Alliance mileage millionaire’s to celebrate the alliance’s 20th anniversary.

Star Alliance Mileage Millionaire CompetitionEnter the Star Alliance Mileage Millionaire Competition by July 31, 2017 at 24:00 UTC for your chance to win.

This is not a random draw contest. Entries are to be judged on their merit. You can read the terms if you are serious to enter.

The angle is that you can only enter once and a winner will be selected for each of the 21 Star Alliance programs. You can see entries by geography but not by their program.

To decide you program you have to weigh:

  • Likelihood to win
  • Value of prize

I would love 1 million United MileagePlus miles, though that probably has fierce competition due to the size of the US travel market.

Other airlines may have fewer, though potentially no less artistic, entries, yet have a less valuable prize.

I didn’t even know Avianca Brazil is not part of LifeMiles, though I wouldn’t pit my chances against the creativity of Brazilians.

Readers, under what program’s banner would you submit an entry? Any hidden gems?

    Other than lower value, any reason wouldn’t I just register for a low volume airline that will have the fewest entries?

  • It is a judged competition, not random entry, so if you think one program is likely to have outsize contributions of merit, you can face a tough challenge even with a small pool. I would not pit myself against the travel photographers of Japan, for instance, so no ANA entry for me.
