    oneworld Benefits by tier status

    Although the oneworld alliance does not offer its own frequent flyer programme, if you are a member of a frequent flyer programme of any oneworld airline, your rewards and privileges are extended throughout the oneworld alliance.

    As a LANPASS member you will also earn tier status whenever you take any oneworld flight - that is a flight which is both marketed and operated by a oneworld airline (the 2-letter designator of a oneworld carrier must appear on your ticket).

    Because oneworld's airlines all have different names for the top membership tiers in their frequent flyer programmes, the alliance has created a tier of names, based on gemstones, that are common across all oneworld airlines:

    • Emerald denotes the top tier in any programme.
    • Sapphire denotes the second tier.
    • Ruby denotes the third tier.

    To help staff easily recognise top-tier members and identify the benefits to which they are entitled, top tier membership cards issued by all oneworld airlines carry a oneworld gemstone symbol in the appropriate colour.
