I got matched to Black with a virtual card.

Any idea what the cutoff is for matches that would be valid until March 2020?
Like a request in May/June, would that only be valid until March 2019?

I can't find the information at the moment, but as far as I know, yes.

But you have to check in the moment the online checkin opens as this determines your position on the upgrade list (in addition to your status).

Also my uncle got his in 2016, he ask for it on Feb, but they reply that they dont match from Jan to March since they are working on the categorys for next period

Hi

I read in the Brazilian press that Latam Fidelidade and pass has been merged from 01/04/2018.
I am trying to apply for a status match but I have only Latam Fidelidade and I am unable to open a Latam Pass.
any suggestions
Thanks for your help

About 3 1/2 months after finally making contact with the right department (via facebook), I got this rejection (this is the google translate version):

"Along with saying hello, we inform you that we have reviewed your request for a "membership category match." However, this has been rejected, Without prejudice to the foregoing, we hope you will continue to be interested in our services and we invite you to review the ways to qualify in www.latam.com can also indicate that as this is a non - mandatory benefit, not always granted by the department in charge. we appreciate your understanding in this regard. "

Oh, well. I really only wanted it for better seat assignments on AA and some lounge access on oneworld across the Pacific. I don't really care much about my LATAM flying. I guess I'll just be sitting in coach on my next $78 SCL-Punta Arenas nonstop. Besides, Sky Airline is probably worse anyway.

Everyone sits in coach on SCL/PUQ. Well, on my first trip down there I was in Row 1 of a 3 cabin 767, and the captain invited me into the cabina for the fly over Torres del Paine, but now, everyone sits in coach.
Apparently LATAM reads your FT posts

Applied for my wife for a match using the webforrm, from BA Silver. We forwarded copy of LATAM flight boarding pass and copy of BA card, and recent flight history with LATAM. Match was rejected and the only reason stated that there is no obligation for LATAM to match.

I am wondering whether LATAM status matches are now history in the new Multiplus world? The request was sent before the migration, the answer came yesterday..

Doubt they're going to match OW status. Intra alliance matches are very rarely allowed.

This thread is full of reports from people who got Oneworld Emerald matched to LATAM Black.

Yes, it is unusual, but LATAM has done it in the past.
So please don't comment when you obviously have no knowledge about the situation.

Any idea if LATAM are matching to LATAM Fidelidade yet? I am a long time TAM Fidelidade member, and wish to status match. They refused me earlier this year due to only matching with LATAM Pass (a programme I cannot join because I am only in Brazil and United Kingdom, where the LATAM web site directs me to join multiplus).

I have just responded to my old match request asking them this and received the following automated reply:

Olá cliente,Informamos que, para realizar a homologação de sócio em nosso programa de fidelidade, precisamos que responda a este e-mail, sem modificar o assunto e com uma cópia em formato .pdf, .jpg ou .doc dos seguintes documentos:– cartão fidelidade da outra companhia;
– último status de conta (no caso da American Airlines, também adicionar o penúltimo Status de Conta).Assim que recebermos essas informações, avaliaremos seu caso e lhe daremos uma resposta em até 5 dias úteis.Para sua tranquilidade, todos os seus dados e milhas/pontos acumulados serão mantidos no mais absoluto sigilo.Muito obrigado.
Equipe LATAM
