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?
