When The LAN Affiliates Will Be Just LAN?

Sat Apr 17, 2004 2:35 am

I flew yesterday in Lan Dominicana (4M), and I tried to get my miles, and they told me that they couldnt since only Lan Chile and Lan Peru could get them, I replyed saying that I thought that all LAN airlines were grouped and only one, and I am supposed to get my miles, they told me that I couldnt.

I just want to know if the proposed grouping of the LAN affiliates is going to happen?

By the way, LAN gives an incredible service onboard.

I did MIA-SDQ with AA and SDQ-MIA with LAN Dominicana, and I just cant believe the service that they gave us on board.

Now I know why people talk good about LAN.

This depends when LAN Ecuador and LAN Dominicana will Oneworld Member due in both LAN own less than 50% so that means there are not automatically
Oneword Member.

This has to be decided by the OW members. In this case it highly depends on AA & IB whether both will be OW Member. Hopefully they will decide somtime this year.


That´s the reason why you can´t get any mileage on those flights yet.

OK, if you didn't know, now LAN Dominicana, Ecuador, Peru and Chile are just LAN.

So now they should start giving you miles and all those stuff.

It´s not that easy all those affiliates will remain in those countries due to legal
reasons. The Ownership has not been changed.

You can´t simply change it by a name change there are still a lot of unsettled things to do, specially in Ecuador and Dom Rep.

As I stated LAN Ecuador and LAN Dominicana are not OW Member so you still
can´t get your mileage on those flights on all XL & 4M flights.

The brandmark LAN reflects a alliance but it is not a merger what a lot of people think.

A merger you can´t due like this cause the are airlines of different countries and that´s not simple.
