I’m about to endure a long mileage run vacation that most people on Flyertalk have already embarked on. I am flying LAX-LIM (1 night stopover) – GRU (2 night stopover) – SCL (3 night stopover) – GRU-LIM-LAX on a combination of LAN and TAM operated flights where I will be crediting my mileage to American Airlines and United respectively.
I bought this fare for $387.36 on Orbitz back in November when I heard about it from the Flyertalk Mileage Run thread. I will be earning 15,907 miles at 2.4 cents per mile which is ridiculously low.
I love finding mileage runs and mistake fares and purchasing them for a low price and taking advantage of layover and stopover rules. I have been to Lima four times and Sao Paulo once, so I am pretty excited to re-visit previous destinations. I have never been to Santiago, Chile and I’m pretty excited to explore new grounds in South America. I’m not excited about the $160 reciprocal fee flying into SCL airport, but I guess it’s good for ten years and it won’t be my last visit.
I will be staying at the Sheraton Lima (already upgraded to a Junior Suite), Sheraton Sao Paulo (upgraded to a Design Suite), Sheraton Santiago, San Cristobal Tower (upgraded using a Suite Night Award), and the W Santiago hotel.
