A company may apply for an untied tidied number of managers under a blanket petition and the when you go for your interview you must satisfy the L1a criteria
With an L-1 blanket petition, the employer gets "pre-approval" from USCIS for its corporate relationships, and then the individual applies directly to the consulate for the visa. An individual L-1 means that the company filed a petition with the USCIS to sponsor the individual. The requirements for eligibility for both are the same .
Yes, there is an L-1A blanket. My colleagues have given a good overview of the difference between a blanket and an individual ... the key is 'pre-approval' of the blanket ... after a number of individuals had been previously approved.
