Update: You can transfer your Starwood points to anyone’s LAN account, the names do not need to match.
This deal is basically only good for non-stop flights, and is best on short-haul flights. It only works on round-trip flights.
LAN has made some major changes to their OneWorld award chart. They now charge a set amount of miles for each flight segment, which makes connecting flights cost significantly more kilometers than it did with the old chart. At the same time there some new bargains especially on short-haul nonstops that can be found with the new chart.
With the new chart just 20,000 Starpoints will get you 4 round-trip tickets between LaGuardia and Boston, or 3 round-trip tickets between Chicago and Toronto!
LAN is one of the only foreign airlines that does not charge a fuel surcharge on award tickets. Plus LAN doesn’t charge other fees like US airlines do for award expedite fees and the like. There is no charge to change the date on award tickets.
You must call the LANPASS award desk to redeem a Oneworld award at 866-435-9526, option #5.
Calling LAN can be a pain. Although LAN has access to same award availability as you can find on other OneWorld carrier websites (like AA.com, BA.com, Qantas.com, etc) some agents will claim that they don’t see availability for the flights. Also every agent seems to calculate their own tax rate, so if something seems wrong, just hang up and try again.
If you find any other great uses with the new chart then please leave a comment!
In the chart below are the prices for sample routes in LAN kilometers and their equivalent in Starpoints assuming that you transfer 20,000 Starpoints for 50,000 LAN kilometers.
Please note that not every route listed below is a bargain. It gets harder to find bargains as the flight distance increases. (For example the JFK-Hong Kong route can be had for just 40,000 Starpoints during off-season by transferring directly to AA.)
LAN kilometers do expire at the end of the 3rd calendar year from when they’re earned. They can’t be extended unless you take a paid flight on LAN.
Business class is twice the cost of coach and First class is 2.5 times the cost of coach.
You can use the great circle links below to calculate the distance in kilometers between any 2 cities.
Most of the flights below on are for travel on AA, but some routes include flights from Alaska, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Qantas.
|If the actual one-way flight distance in kms. is between:||Then the round-trip flight in coach will cost the following LAN kms.||Which is equivalent to the following amount of Starpoints at a 2:5 ratio.||Sample Routes (actual distance in kms.) on OneWorld and partner carriers such as AA, Alaska, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, and others.|
|15001+||200,000||80,000||Does not seem to exist???|
Note: Starwood Starpoints transfer into LAN kilometers at a 1:2 ratio. If you transfer 20,000 Starpoints you will get 50,000 LAN kilometers due to the doubling of the 5,000 point bonus that’s awarded with every 20,000 Starpoint transfer into miles!
You can also use 60,000 Starpoints with Starwood’s “Nights & Flights” option and get 5 nights in a Starwood Category 3 hotel as well as 100,000 LAN kilometers.
I have personally done and can confirm that both of these transfer options work, although it does take a couple weeks for the transfer to complete.
It’s also worth noting that some flights with a stop can make sense with the chart. For example you can fly Royal Jordanian from JFK to Amman for 100,000 kilometers round-trip and Amman to Tel Aviv for 12,000 kilometers round-trip for a total of 112,000 kilometers, or roughly 44,800 Starpoints in total. No other routings from the US to Israel seem to make sense though

If you fly the following amounts on USAirways between 10/01/09-12/25/09 you will get fast-tracked to elite status valid through 02/28/11.
Registration is not required.
It’s a cute twist on the double elite miles promo offered by AA, Continental, and United, but it seems to have been made without giving any thought to how it might upset current USAirways elite members who have been flying the whole year to attain elite status and don’t gain anything with the promo.
-Fly 7,500 miles or 10 segments and earn Silver Preferred status
-Fly 15,000 miles or 20 segments and earn Gold Preferred status
-Fly 22,500 miles or 30 segments and earn Platinum Preferred status
-Fly 30,000 miles or 40 segments and earn Chairman’s Preferred status

Starwood AMEX Linky (Free for first year, Earn 10,000 Starpoints With First Purchase, and 30,000 more Starpoints with your first $15,000 in purchases) The US Mint should be able to help you there in no time!
Starwood has added a wonderful new flexible search option for cash and points availability on spg.com
First off, some background information: There will always be a debate on whether you are better off using your Starwood Starpoints on hotel stays or transferring them into miles.
When you transfer them into miles you get a 25% bonus, so 20,000 Starpoints becomes 25,000 miles on dozens of airlines. You are better off earning Starpoints with credit card spending than earning miles as you will earn more miles by transferring Starpoints into miles than you will by just earning miles. Plus you’ll have the flexibility to choose from dozens of airlines.
But there are numerous ways of using Starpoints for hotel stays that can be even more lucrative than miles.
-The traditional Starpoint hotel usage allows you to book a room at any hotel without any capacity controls. Even if it is peak season and rooms are a small fortune, you can still redeem the same amount of Starpoints for a room, starting from just 2,000 Starpoints per night depending on what category (1-7) the hotel is in. When you redeem 4 nights with points in this manner, the 5th night is free!
-Another variation is the nights and flights option where you get 5 free nights and 50,000 miles for less Starpoints than it would normally cost to book both separately.
-Finally there is one of my favorites, the Cash And Points option. It’s available on category 3-6 hotels (its also available for category 1-2 hotels in Asia/Pacific) and is often a bargain. I’ve gotten $500 rooms for just 2,800 Starpoints + $45 for a night with Cash And Points. Do the math, that’s a value of over 16 cents per Starpoint! ($500-$45=$455/2,800 Starpoints=16.25cpp. And that’s not even counting the upgrade from the room into a 3 balcony suite normally costing over $1,500 per night!) There are some truly amazing values out there with Cash And Points.
The only problem with Cash And Points is that unlike with the traditional Starpoint hotel usage the rooms are capacity controlled. Until this point the only way to check availability for Cash And Points has been to manually plug in each date that you want and see if Cash And Points comes up as an option.
Now all you have to do is type in your destination on spg.com and you don’t even have to enter a date, just click “find now.” A list of the hotels at your destination will then come up. Click on the “Cash And Points” option and then select “Dates Flexible.” An easy to use calendar will pop up and you can easily find dates that have Cash And Points availability! You can even have multiple calendars open at the same time for all of the different hotels on the search results page.
Thanks for the new functionality Starwood!

As you probably know Continental is about to become the largest airline ever to change alliances when they go from 9 member Skyteam to 24 member Star.
They leave Skyteam on 10/24. If you want to redeem Continental miles for Skyteam partner flights or partner Skyteam miles for Continental flights don’t forget to do it by 10/24!
Continental joins Star Alliance on 10/27.
Here are the major changes:
The nice thing is that for the most part with the new Star Alliance chart the rates are the same no matter which airline you fly on. Under the old charts the rates varied according to the airline. Also the premium cabin on any flight without a true business and first class is only considered business class!
The new Continental chart is basically the same as United’s chart except that a round-the-world trip is much cheaper with Continental miles (160,000 in coach, 220,000 in business, 280,000 in first) than with United miles (200,000 in coach, 300,000 in business, 400,000 in first) and Continental has promised not to block partner award availability when using Onepass miles on Star Alliance carriers, while United severely blocks partner award availability when using their miles.
Here are the rate differences when redeeming Continental miles on sample routes between the: Current Rate/New Rate.
(Most surprising is the drop in mileage for TLV flights, which were the only flights to go up for 2009, and are now amongst the only flights to go down!)
Newark-Chicago in coach with Saturday night stay: 20,000/20,000.
Newark-Los Angeles in coach without Saturday night stay: 50,000/25,000.
Newark-Honolulu in coach: 35,000/40,000.
Newark-Honolulu in BusinessFirst: 75,000/80,000.
Newark-Tel Aviv in Coach: 90,000/75,000.
Newark-Tel Aviv in BusinessFirst: 120,000/115,000.
Tel Aviv-Honolulu in Coach: 110,000/80,000.
Tel Aviv–Honolulu in BusinessFirst: 140,000/120,000.
Newark-Buenos Aires in Coach: 50,000/55,000.
Newark-Buenos Aires in BusinessFirst: 90,000/100,000.
Newark-London in Coach: 50,000/55,000.
Newark-London in BusinessFirst: 100,000/105,000.
Newark-Shanghai in Coach: 60,000/65,000.
Newark-Shanghai in BusinessFirst: 120,000/125,000.
-Saturday night stays are no longer required for a domestic saverpass reward flight. (Eff: 10/27)
-Award redeposit, change, and expedite fees are $75 per passenger for non-elites, $50 for silver elites, $25 for gold elites, and free for platinum elites. The fees are contingent on the status of the member redeeming the miles, not the status of the flying member. Date changes more than 21 days before the flight are still free. (Eff: 12/15)
-Continental Silver=Star Alliance Silver. (Eff: 10/27)
-Continental Gold and Platinum=Star Alliance Gold for international lounge access and 3 free checked bags. (Eff: 10/27)
-Continental Platinum members get free same day confirmed changes. (Eff: 10/01)
-All fares (even those not purchased on continental.com) will earn full elite miles. Finally every domestic carrier offers full redeemable and elite miles regardless of where you purchase your ticket. (Eff: 10/27)
-Elites will earn their 25%-100% bonus miles based on 500 mile minimum segment miles even on flights under 500 miles. Previously the bonus was based on the actual flight miles. (Eff: 10/27)

Wow the bookings must be really bad for the airlines to resort to a double elite miles twice in a year!
With all of these double elite miles promos there’s really no excuse to be paying for checked baggage or flying in coach 😉
