It’s no longer about the miles-it’s about the kilometer!

LAN, based out of South America, is a OneWorld alliance member.
They have some really great flight bargains.
Why should you care?
Because 20,000 Starpoints transfers into 50,000 Lanpass Kilometers!!!

That’s right, Starpoints transfer into Lanpass Kilometers at a ratio of 1:2 plus you get 5,000 bonus starpoints with a 20,000 starpoint transfer, which at the same 1:2 ratio means you will get 10,000 bonus kilometers!

It gets better.

The top part of the award page shows the awards when you fly on LAN.

Some of the shocking values of Lanpass kilometers:
Bear in mind that 20,000 starpoints=50,000 kilometers!

Flights on LAN between South America zone 1 (Including Brasil) and North America are just 48,000 kilometers in coach and 90,000 kilometers in business class!
This is less than what most other airlines charge in miles!

Then comes the OneWorld award possibilities.
There are 8 Oneworld zones.
With Lanpass, (unlike cathay pacific) the kilometers listed is the total roundtrip flight kilometers.
Make sure to set the Great circle mapper to kilometers when checking distances!

Here’s the kicker:
Going from New York to Tel Aviv via London on British Airways is 18296 km.
(Chicago to Tel Aviv via London on British Airways works as well, it is 19909 km, or just 91 km. away from being zone 5!)
That places it in zone 4:
Economy: 95,000 km.
Business: 140,000 km.
First: 190,000 km

With the free 5,000 km signup bonus, you only need 90,000 km. to get to Israel!
When you transfer just 40,000 starpoints you’ll have over 100,000 km. in your Lanpass account!

Transfering 20.000 *wood points will give you 45.000 lan points, NOT 50.000. Thats what the stwarwood website says.

I love reading your site, and acting on your tips…but, sometimes it’s soooo confusing!!!!!
I have been accumulating starwood points to go business class, with my wife, to Israel from NY. Please explain to me again EXACTLY what to do. (a flow chart would be wonderful!!!)
Thank you


Know of any good deals to Sydney, AUstralia for July 25?



even tho it says 1:2, when i transfered my 20400, i only got 48k something.


Gosh, I didn’t think that I was that confusing!

40,000 starpoints transfers into 100,000 lanpass kilometers.

95,000 lanpass kilometers gets you a free ticket to/from Tel Aviv and NYC.

My friend transferred 20,000 starpoints and got 50,000 lanpass kilometers.


many of us want to close our Amex Charge cards… (and use only the Starwood) what’s the best value to transfer our MR points before we close it?


I signed up and didnt get the 5,000 bonus… PLEASE ADVISE!!!


RE Anon 2:20:

I have been paying for my Amex Gold Charge card $150 for the past year, just to keep the 100,000+ points that I have…

So yes I am looking to close mine as well, STARWOOD KICKS!!!!
