    OK.... I think that after my outbound EZE to LIM later this month, I will attain the first tier status (whatever that is) with LAN.... does anybody know if you are given some sort of preferred boarding with this status...? Also, does this status carry forward on OW partners like American...?

    Im facing a complicated US domestic itinerary which is 100% on American and could actually use some sort of boarding priviledges that may be given to OW members with some sort of status....

    If anybody has the details, please share your thoughts...

    Gracias!!

    Once your status changes in their system (which could be awhile), your # may have to be deleted and re-entered for the status to show.

    First level? That would be Premium. Hence:

    As a PREMIUM member, you can check in at the Premium Business or Premium Economy counters even if you’re travelling in Economy class, just by showing your membership card. This benefit is available on international routes and is valid for both LAN and oneworld airline flights. The benefit is only valid for the cardholder.

    One World status? That would be Ruby.

    Nope, and it expires in March. Usually I don't care about the card since status is indicated on the BP, but there are a lot of discounts around town offered for elites, but only if you show the card. No sense in offering benefits if people can't access them

    Yep. You log into the LANPass site, then go to mi cuenta. Some people report difficulties with updating their info but I haven't had a problem recently.

    Interesting thing happened boarding the flight to LSC Friday. Premium status on LAN supposedly doesn't give access to priority boarding, but my friend gave it a go anyway and they let him through NQA. I was always turned away. :(

    sounds like a random occurence to me..... some agent was just not bothered to throw the book at him.... or, perhaps he is just better looking than you are...???

    Or that he's Chilean...

    (Though to be very honest, I have never felt that LAN in SCL plays favorites to Chileans)
