Copa is a stickler for this, even for final destination of countries that do not require return or onward ticket proof. Such as Uruguay, where I've lived for several years and have legal residency. I...

Absolutely should work. I've done connections that short or nearly so, a few times. Once even with an in-cabin cat.

Only use Avianca as the airline(s) name

At this point, every brand is marketed as Avianca only. Because that is the only way a person can buy the flight, the same example as LAN should apply, as @JohnnyColombia noted.

As to the...

Uruguay does thumbprint on arrival and departure. There is a camera but I didn't see them actually take a photo nor was I asked to pose for one.

I have a resident ID, however, so that might be a...

Not a board member and no longer a frequent poster, but I strongly support this idea for a Copa-specific forum. With the launch of ConnectMiles, especially it having many customers who were formally...

I'm LOLing at the "We are Uruguayan" bit in the video. Did they just buy the dregs of Pluna? (No, of course, just joking.) Sure, LAN and TAM fly here, but there's sadly no "LAN Uruguay".

LAN doesn't seem to be able to change

Wow, it's way over the top to call it "theft". But LAN doesn't seem to be able to change FF number after it's first been entered in the reservation. Not even if at online or kiosk check-in, it...

PIN came from Continental. Old UA had password-only, old CO originally had PIN, then added a password option. Merged system, aka CO dba UA, inherited that "PIN-primary" concept.

More than one, yes. More than one, active? No.

In most cases, having more than one active account per alliance does not make sense. There certainly are edge cases where it does. But those usually...

The reports state the plane was giving off the "hijack" code, which apparently was its transponder squawking 7500.

That makes me wonder - can the "hijacking in progress" squawk code be triggered...

First, good luck with getting that many award seats on the same flights!

This was a "feature" of the old Continental site too. Not just the merged version. I had some canceled/credit-reused reservations that hung out on the Inactive tab for years.
