Frequent Flyers Anyone?

Wed Aug 15, 2001 7:30 pm

Here's a thought..
As a passenger, How happy are you with your airline's frequent flyer program? why?

Personally, the one most thing that gets to me with mine is pure academic, they just don't seem to record correctly (and I have to send them verification all the time).

I am a United Airlines Mileage plus member. (Also valid for all star alliance partners).
No problems at all I always got the mileage that I deserved. I joined their program because I am a regular visitor to the USA.
Right now I have enough mileage for a one way upgrade to business class on my next UA flight to the USA......I am already looking forward to that experience.

Yes, I am one of those ordinary people that can't afford to fly Business class unless it's a business trip.... Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'm generally happy with KrisFlyer. However I had one unrecorded flight and I sent all the details back in February, right now it's still pending verification and I'm not happy about that!

Yes me too,
I am both Krisflyer and Qualiflyer and I had too problems with the missing mileage section who was very very slow to count my miles !!
Qualiflyer is better to do this...

Northwest and Continental's elite program is the best. You get an unlimited amount of free upgrades from any fare booked within the U.S.!

NZ's 'Air Points' programme is pretty good and quite accurate. You very rarely need to send in boarding cards and / or tickets to verify flights taken. But, they are getting a lot of flak here at the moment (in the newspapers etc) for making it difficult for people to redeem awards. For example, if you request an upgrade, they won't confirm it until check-in, so you have no idea whether you will be in economy or business until you check in. The reason is that they give priority to gold members. However, as a gold member, I'd rather all passengers have some certainty when they request upgrades than leave upgrade decisions until the last minute depending on whether gold members want to request a last minute upgrade.
