Other North & South America Frequent Flyer Programs - CM joins Star..finally?

I didn't see this before but surely Pedro H must have announced it formally somewhere.
Tonight, CM.COM shows the Star A icon at the top of the page. I don't remember this icon being there last week, when I had cause to make heavy use of CM.COM (six sectors in three days).
You mean http://www.cmairlines.com/starmiles.html? Star Miles seems to be the name of their frequent flyer program. NOT the same as the Star Alliance. Just a coincidence?

I was using the IATA designation for Copa (CM) - this seems usual practice on FT.
So the website did prefigure...I see that this morning, the stock news confirms CM's entry into Star:

Got their phone # from a very friendly UA CSR. When I fist dialed in, there were 3 options...
#1 Purchase a tickect
#2 Work with an existing reservation
#3 Flying Premier
So, naturally I push button #3. A very friendly gentleman, got on the fone with me ASAP & asked for my Primero numbre! I of course gave him my 1K #. Off to the races we went!!! He immidiatly knew my name, which flight I was on & the ensured me we (together) would pick the bests seats possible!
Overall, I was super impressed with their service. I"ll have to report back next month with details of the actual trip!
