LAN, the premier Oneworld carrier servicing South America, just announced a pretty competitive fare sale for business class flights to South America.

From Miami, the airline is advertising roundtrip fares as low as $899 to Bogota, $1,399 to Lima and $2,099 to Easter Island, though the fare to Santiago is an inexplicably high $3,499.

From New York, you can score roundtrip seats to Quito or Guayaquil for $949, Lima for $2,499, Buenos Aires for $2,999, and Easter Island for $3,199, and Santiago for $3,499.

Roundtrip tickets from LAX include options to Lima for $1,999, Easter Island for $2,899, Buenos Aires for $3,199, and Santiago for $3,499; while from San Francisco, roundtrip fares include those to Lima for $2,299, Easter Island for $2,999, Buenos Aires for $3,399, and Santiago for $3,499.

Tickets must be booked by February 27 and travel must be completed between March 15-June 30, 2012.

I think some of these, especially the ones to Peru, Ecuador and Easter Island are pretty great deals, especially considering Premium Business on LAN can cost around $6,000 on some of these routes. I might even consider saving my Avios for some more lucrative short-haul redemption options and using cash to pay for a ticket down there instead, since it will count towards elite status qualification on American. LAN has a solid fully lie flat business class product, though I noticed many of the flights from NYC route through Miami and the domestic portions are on American Airlines.

    I went to Ecuador this summer and I think it’s definitely worth a visit

    If one were to take one of these flights what’s the payoff in terms of AAdvantage RDM and EQM miles considering any applicable class of service bonus? And what class would these tickets book into?

    LAN’s hard product in Business is first rate — terrific flat-bed seat. But the soft product is inconsistent. Have had some flights where I really didn’t think the service was much better in Business than it had been in Economy (though that may say more about the above-average soft product in coach). Just keep in mind that LAN often plays games with discounted fares. They will have very few seats, if any, available on the non-stops and steer you through other cities via partners (which might be why you saw a lot of Miami-connecting flights). I like the airline but find their booking process and pricing pretty maddening.

    Anybody else finding it impossible to book the promotional biz class JFK – UIO (Quito) fare?

    JFK to GYE is a great value for under $1k rt… the soft product sux, especially if you do not speak Spanish the flight attendants are really unfriendly (yes that is in business class…), but the hard product is great, really comfy seat with decent IFE.
    from GYE you can use BA Adios points for a LAN flight to Baltra island… this flight is under 2 hours but always at least $600 rt… so well worth using Adios points on.
    There is no place in the world like Galapagos!
