Bei Avianca Lifemiles könnte es bald Probleme geben …

Wir lieben Avianca Lifemiles für die super Einlösemöglichkeiten für die First und Business. Regelmäßige Meilenverkäufe und eine sehr nette Meilentabelle macht Lifemiles wirklich super interessant. Derzeit sollte man aber möglicherweise von einem Meilenkauf Abstand nehmen. Überhaupt sollte man aufgrund der unübersichtlichen aktuellen Situation keine großen Meilenlager anlegen. Wer ein Spieler ist, der kann das natürlich tun.

Die US Börsenaufsicht verlangt von gehandelten Aktien Rechenschaft und Prognosen über den weiteren wirtschaftlichen Werdegang. Da lesen wir folgende nicht so vertrauenserweckende Dinge über Avianca:

“The COVID-19 outbreak has already materially and adversely affected, and may further materially and adversely affect, the airline industry and us.
In December 2019, cases of COVID-19 were first reported in Wuhan, China, and the virus has now spread globally. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic and, in March 2020, many governments around the world –including those of the U.S., Colombia and most Latin American countries– declared states of emergency in their respective jurisdictions and implemented measures to halt the spread of the virus, including enhanced screenings, quarantine requirements and severe travel restrictions.
Following orders by the governments of Colombia and of other countries in which we operate, we have temporarily ceased international passenger operations to and from Colombia, ceased all Colombian domestic passenger flight operations, and cancelled all passenger flights to and within Peru, El Salvador and Ecuador. As a result of such measures, substantially all of our passenger flights have been canceled, and the corresponding fleet grounded.
The spread of COVID-19 and the government measures taken to address it have already had a material and adverse effect on the airline industry and on us and have resulted in unprecedented revenue and demand drop as well as overall macroeconomic uncertainty.
We cannot foresee or quantify the extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our operational and financial performance, which will depend on developments relating to the spread of the outbreak, the duration and extent of quarantine measures and travel restrictions and the impact on overall demand for air travel, all of which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.
As set forth in our report on Form 6-K furnished on March 27, 2020, we have cut all non-essential capital expenditures, and have temporarily deferred payments on our long-term leases and on payment of principal on certain loan obligations. As a result, we are currently in default under certain of our outstanding indebtedness and other obligations. If our operations remain suspended for an extended period, we may have to take further measures to preserve our business and protect our cash position to the extent possible.

Avianca und Avianca Lifemiles sind zwei getrennte Unternehmen, wie wir das von Airberlin und Topbonus bereits gekannt haben. Der Crash von Airberlin hat auch Topbonus ins Verderben gestürzt. Ein Meilenprogramm ohne Airline ist einfach weitgehend wertlos.

Also bei einem Meilenkauf sollte man sich eher zurückhalten.
