I don't have the answer but I am wondering as well being a member of both programs and having miles coming to expiry deadline in 2005 on AF
. I've preferred KL
recently, the transfer from train to plane at CDG
is a hassle if you have more than a hand luggage.
In every communication I had with either AF
I asked what the situation would be and they weren't very talkative. It was only mentioned to me (FD Gold Elite) that they would bring the programs closer around Q1 or early Q2
When asking more specific questions already a few months into the creation of AF
/KL and into collect & spend reciprocity, they were not very useful either. E.g. I wanted to know how many miles you'd get on Fréquence Plus for the BRU
leg. Because if you route via AF
you get 1,000 AF
miles in Y but if you route via KL
F70 flight you'd get only 500 FD
Question of the like: Ok I'm stuck in BRU
and will fly SkyTeam (especially with MEA
joining) but should I fly AF
and collect on the one or the latter to get the better deal.
