next long haul trip for me will be a visit to Brazil in April of next year. Got a great deal for a LAN business class ticket and will be flying
AKL - SCL / LA 800
SCL - GRU / LA 754
GRU - SCL / LA 751
SCL - AKL / LA 801
Flights between BNE and AKL will be on QF 115 and QF 116.
This will be my first trip to South America and my first time flying a South American carrier. The number recent LA trip reports is very limited so thought I'd go to this forum to get some of my questions answered so here I go:
1) How is the business class product on LA's A340 and B767 ?
2) How are the lounges in AKL, SCL and GRU ?
3) Does LA have special upgrade fares from economy to business on day of travel ? My wife will join me in Brazil halfway through my business trip and she is booked on same flights in economy. We are flying back together with me in business and her in coach. Does LA charge a specific fixed amount for upgrades at day of travel if seats in business are still available ?
4) Will I be able to take my wife in to the LA lounges in GRU, SCL and AKL even though she is booked in economy ?
As usual, thanks in advance for your replies.
Cheers from Brisbane,
