    OK... so after what is supposed to be my last trip this year I end up 1775 kilometers short of my year target of 40,000 to renew my lowly but for me still valuable Premium Status. I realize this is probably the best joke of the year but I will ask anyway... any chance that I can get LAN to give me a break and renew my status or will I have to fly some chepo flight to get me over the 40K limit before 12/31...???

    Why is it that I think I already know the answer...????? :mad:

    Call them and ask. Worst they can say is No. If the do you better schedule a weekend mileage run or some sort of credit card churn that gives qualifying miles.

    The Jumbo and Easy in the new mall are already open - the 300m tower isn't quite done, but this way, you can't miss where you're going. You know, a Jumbo that has fully stocked shelves, many of which are imported items. It is right off the Costanera Norte. Sin tacos, 20 minutes max from SCL.

    Ive gotten my answer on TOBB.... and it was not what I had wished for..... no 800 minumum rule, the wording on the website is plain wrong. They still will use the 25% accrual rule on the 800 minimum.....

    :mad:

    Thats it.... I have decided to dump LANPass and go back to AAdvantage......

    Are you perhaps thinking of flying to Mendoza to watch some wine being grown?
