Multi city booking with LAN


I have spent hours reading forum regarding booking via LAN Peru vs. LAN USA, multi-city and round trip. Now I am more confused than before. There seems to have many different information.

Okay, here is the plan.

June 07 LAX - Lima

June 09 Lima-Cuzco

June 15 Cuzco - LAX (transfer in Lima of course)

On LAN USA: Lima-Cuzco round trip is $363

On LAN Peru: Lima-Cuzco round trip is $128 with below restrictions

"Si eres residente peruano, puedes acceder a las Tarifas Base y Base Plus en rutas nacionales dentro del país. Si utilizas este beneficio, pero no acreditas la residencia, LAN te podrá cobrar un cargo adicional de US$ 178 o negar el embarque."

Question 1: so even they charge me $178, which will still be cheaper than book via LAN USA

Then I check multi-city rate

Both LAN USA and LAN Peru site has the same rate $1099

when I check round trip LAX to Lima,

both sites have the same rate @ $1034

so the best rate will be multi-city rate via LAN USA

Then, I read forum talk about do not book via multi-city since it automatic use the base rate which is for Peruvian resident only.

but there was a post someone bought ticket via LAN Canada using the multi-city and everything works out fine.

What should I do? Maybe just buy the $1099 via LAN USA and hope everything will work out?

When you book a Lan flight from the USA and include the Lima to Cusco fare its much cheaper than booking a Lax to Lima and then a Lim to Cusco fare, and also the local fare restriction goes into effect.

If your destination is Cusco you dont have to select multi-city option on LAN webpage, just select LAX-CUZ, if you book from Peru's LAN webpage they will charge you USD178 for being not local.

I am stopping in Lima for 2 nights before heading to Cusco. So the $178 local restriction will be added even though I book through LAN USA combining international and local flights.

You can book the LIM-CUZ flights separately on the Lan Peru website just be sure NOT to book BASE or BASE PLUS fares.

I'm even more confused after reading the postings on LAN PERU vs LAN USA.

I'd like to book multi cities via the LAN USA website. SFO >> LIMA >>> CUZCO >> LIMA >>> SFO.

Can I assume that the domestic leg between LIMA and CUZCO are for non-Peruvians since I'm booking through LAN USA?

Thank you in advance for any clarification!
