    :mad: :mad:

    I guess they are enjoying heavy loads... but the price delta between AA and LA out of EZE to the US are simply madness...... I can get from EZE to SFO or LAX on American for under $1500 but have to spend at least $2100 if I want to book and fly on LAN metal......

    They have very good (lowest) published fares but likely those fare buckets are full. Also the Q (fuel surcharge) on LA is probably nastier than AA?

    Im of course pissed off because I want to try to fly as much as possible on LAN tickets and LAN metal to get the lousy but still better than nothing Premier bonus and what not.... but at these fare levels, Im stuck with having to fly AA.... grrrrr I pray to the Gods that I at least get the long haul in AA 777 metal and have a chance at having a decent entretainment service..... :rolleyes:

    what are your approximate dates of travel? What kind of weather and traffic will you be ordering? Will you be using KTCS* again?

    If I make it to SFO, I would love to use KTCS.... but I may rent a car. At this point, I still dont have a gig in SFO to justify me going there..... hope to still make something work next week. In the mean time, can you get these friggen LAN fares to drop for petes-sake (it that a cocktail?) :p
