One way to use ThankYou points is by converting them to Avianca Lifemiles at 1:1 ratio.
Because Avianca Lifemiles is a member airline of the Star Alliance, you can then redeem 75,000 miles (= 75,000 ThankYou points) for a one-way business class ticket from North America to Korea or Japan, flying Asiana, All Nippon Airways, EVA, or United. If you redeem 90,000 miles, you can fly first class on All Nippon Airways' new 777-300ER.
Here are some pictures from my recent flight on All Nippon Airways from Tokyo to Chicago (July 2020)
