Got the card but it's kind of useless if you've got Fréquence Plus since you can then get the same awards and collect with more partners. Wish I could merge them. Basically wish I knew when I flew MEA for the first time (LHR-BEY) that they were an AF partner.
Although I'd expect the number of partners to broaden with MEA's entry into SkyTeam. Not sure whether US carriers would be allowed to share a frequent flyer program with a Lebanese airline though, now that I'm thinking. Since I read around the forums that even code-sharing is not permitted. Who knows.
I think nowadays you can check your balance online. Don't know about issuing awards. Maybe the announced new website with online booking will allow award booking as well? I personally doubt it will.
Ah! And mind the expiration policy if don't clock miles on the card that often. I think they're valid for 3 years, unless it became unlimited. Seek confirmation.
