    Do you know if the LAN move at T8 is effective immediately?

    Hi David – Thanks for asking, I forgot to mention it. It seems that they started using T8 yesterday. From LAN’s website:

    LAN announces that beginning February 1, 2012, our operations will be transfered at JFK International Airport from Terminal 4 to Terminal 8 allowing us to provide our passengers with better service and travel experience.

    Thanks for the comment!

    Hopefully that is a sign that they will stay with OW!

    @ Mike – That’s a very good point. I hope you’re right!

    But it means no more Oasis Lounge….too bad. AAdmiral Lounge is terrible in comparison.

    Nice contest! I could always use another trip to S. America. Answering the question about best experience in S. America was impossible to answer so I gave my top 4!
