LATINPASS In 2000, this Latin American airline alliance gained notoriety when it sponsored one of the most lucrative promotions to date. The promotion gave members the opportunity to earn one million miles for a minimal amount of partner usage. Frequent flyers recognized the value of the promotion immediately, and before long, LatinPass was overwhelmed by the number of participants, most of whom were members of the online forum FlyerTalk or had heard of the promotion from FlyerTalk. To this day, LatinPass is synonymous with irresistable, yet error-plagued promotions.
