While I’ve been to Santiago, there are quite a few places in Chile I’d still like to visit — in particular, Easter Island and the Atacama Desert.
As a miles & points enthusiast, getting to Chile in a decent premium cabin product can be challenging. That’s because LATAM is pretty stingy when it comes to releasing award space, at least if you don’t have miles with their own program — partner award space is nearly non-existent, especially for two seats.
Perhaps the best way to get there is to book a paid ticket to Santiago. As an Executive Platinum member with American I can book economy and upgrade to business class, or maybe I’m even better off just trying to fly premium economy, so I can finally review it. Then it’s not too tough to book flights within Chile.
