LATAM Pass Offering Status Match Promotion

LATAM Pass Offering Status Match Promotion

3

LATAM Pass has just launched a pretty generous status match promotion, available to residents of the United States and Chile. If you’re eligible and fly LATAM with any frequency then this is a great opportunity, though otherwise the benefits of this are pretty limited.

Basics of LATAM’s status match promo

The website statusmatch.com is partnering with LATAM Pass to offer a status match promotion. A few basics to be aware of, to start:

  • Requesting a status match costs $39
  • LATAM is matching to Gold, Gold Plus, Platinum, and Black status, but not to Black Signature status
  • Status matches will be approved within three business days, and within six business days your status should be upgraded
  • The promotion is valid for matches through October 31, 2022, though the offer could be pulled before then
  • Matched status is valid through March 31, 2023, so that’s just over seven months to enjoy the status
  • This offer is only valid for residents of the United States and Chile; presumably residency is generally determined by the address on your LATAM Pass account

Which airline status is LATAM matching?

According to the FAQs, LATAM is matching the following status:

  • Aerolineas Argentinas Aerolineas Plus
  • Aeromexico Club Premier
  • Air Canada Aeroplan
  • Air Europa SUMA
  • Air France-KLM Flying Blue
  • Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan
  • American Airlines AAdvantage
  • Avianca LifeMiles
  • Caribbean Airlines Caribbean Miles
  • Copa Airlines ConnectMiles
  • Delta Air Lines SkyMiles
  • GOL Smiles
  • Iberia Plus
  • JetBlue TrueBlue
  • Lufthansa Miles & More
  • Southwest Rapid Rewards
  • TAP Air Portugal Miles & Go
  • Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles
  • United Airlines MileagePlus
    WestJet Rewards

As you can see, this includes a lot of airline options, and in each case you should be matched to a roughly equivalent tier in LATAM Pass. For example, American AAdvantage Executive Platinum matches to LATAM Pass Black.

LATAM is matching status with all kinds of airlines

Is this status match worth it?

We saw a similar status match earlier in the year limited to residents of Colombia, while this one is open to those in the United States and Chile, so a lot more people are potentially eligible. Beyond the geographic restrictions, is this status match worth it?

  • Getting a status match for just $39 without a flying requirement is pretty awesome, especially when status tiers this high are being matched
  • The catch is that LATAM no longer belongs to a global alliance, which changed when Delta invested in LATAM; if you’re looking for perks on other airlines, you can expect some limited benefits on Delta, but that’s about it
  • LATAM Pass does have pretty strong elite perks when flying with the airline, including priority check-in, lounge access, premium seat assignments, upgrades, and more

If I’m reading things correctly, under the current system LATAM Pass Black members receive unlimited complimentary upgrades to business class on all routes (though there are some changes as of April 2023). Am I reading that correctly? If so, this is a pretty awesome opportunity…

Bottom line

There’s a new status match promotion for LATAM Pass. The opportunity is open to those in the United States and Chile, you can be matched all the way up to Black status, and there’s no flying requirement. There is a cost to request a match, though it’s “only” $39, which isn’t too bad. Unfortunately matched status is only valid for around seven months (at most), through March 31, 2023.

This is potentially a solid opportunity, though just keep in mind that LATAM is no longer in the oneworld alliance, so there are limited benefits to this when traveling on other airlines.

Do any OMAAT readers plan to take advantage of this status match offer?

    This promotion would be worth it for anyone traveling through SCL at least once given the new 43,000-square-foot lounge that opened up their earlier this year. With most of the USA / European lounges packed this summer, the LATAM lounge still is very spacious.

    You don’t get most of the benefits if you purchase a basic fare. I have a trip to Peru coming up and would have loved free carry on / checked baggage but now definitely not worth it. The flights are all short haul I don’t care about priority boarding, seat upgrades, etc.

    I'm Platinum Medallion on Delta and will likely be flying LATAM to South America and back in January. Would I not already get those benefits flying LA because of my DL status? I'm confused as to how I would benefit getting this status upgrade on LATAM.
