lan vs ba

Saw some post on one of the blogs so I thought I'd make a few charts. Hopefully useful. The point is to demonstrate that even with the transfer bonus, Starwood-->LAN is typically inferior to Starwood-->BA, but that is typically inferior to AMEX/Chase--->BA.
These graphs represent the number of Starwood points needed per mile of travel when transferring them into either LAN or BA distance based awards. It was meant to show the savings of using BA vs LAN at any distance of flight up to 3500 miles.
