- LGA- IAH (Houston) – BOG (Bogota) – BAQ (Barranquilla) – BOG – IAH – LGA Also available from Newark. The segment between Bogota and Medellin is operated by Avanica, a member of the Star Alliance and United Partner.

- 8,133 miles or 5.7 cents per mile. However, you will only receive 7,706 miles or 6.0 cents per mile
