Possible to convert GlobalPass miles to Distancia?

If my memory serves me correctly, this was possible previously. Can it still be done?

Awhile ago LP stopped it. It would make that much of a difference as Dis wouldnt allow a person to use LP miles to get a tkt on any carrier that wasnt apart of LP. In other words, they stopped you from transfering LP to Dis then cashing out for a tkt on American (a partner of Dis).
Only benefit was that with Dis you are able to get a free stopover, so you could fit 2 countries onto 1 tkt. With LP/GP you need to ante up more miles if you want a stopover.
The BIG Neg is with Dis you need to take a Paid flight every 3 yrs or the miles go bye-bye, and it must be a Grupo-Taca flight at that. hotel stays/ rental cars etc doesnt keep the clock ticking as it does by GP.

If anyone has been able in the past 2 yrs to use miles transferred ONLY from LP/GP and get a tkt on AA or any other partner of Dis PLEASE post when and with whom.
