I hope you can help. A friend of mine is taking a world tour and he just bought the Star world ticket. The route is: SCL-GRU-MAD-LHR-CDG-F R A -DEL-BKK-ICN-NRT-SYD-AKL-PPT-LAX-YYZ-SCL
He is taking the 39000 miles tkt. Anyway, this is the question: She has LanPass, so she is member of One World. Then, I think it's worth for him to join a Star FFP for taking this one.
Is there any difference in any airline he could join? I mean, perhaps the most smart decision is RG, since is the only Latin Airline in Star. This way, she could use the miles for Latin American destination.
But, my concern is RG's bad shape. Then, I think LH could be a good option, LH is a good airline in good shape, with daily flights to Santiago. If I take this option (join Lufthansa), is he going to be able to ask for any RG flight? or there are some restrictions when you change the airline?
Am I overreacting with my concerns of RG?
In this case, what is the best option for joining a Frequent Flyer Program?
Gracias )( Arcano
