    Do you actually board first too? When I was on a South America Airpass fare booked in B, I got "up front" seating but with no Lanpass nor Oneworld status, it meant I boarded last.

    Nope. They do boarding by front of the plane and back of the plane (16-32 first, 1-15 last or something like that) so unless you're Premium Silver/Sapphire or above, no early boarding. Sometimes flashing the Santander World Member AmEx or MasterCard works, but don't count on it.

    They aren't offering premium economy within Chile. They are offering the first few rows of the plane with no additional service.

    This is only for the first rows of regular economy on domestic flights - CLP 2,000 for shorter distances like SCL-LSA and CLP 3,000 for longer distances (SCL-PMC). There is no change in service level.

    Yes and no. AA does it, but other carriers, like UA, offer more leg room in the first few rows of economy which does effectively change the product slightly and thus create additional value for those seats. AA is moving to this model, and will offer "stretch seating" in the first rows of econ soon.
