I have searched both the forums at Flyertalk and Milepoint for this, but so far I've come up with nada. The background is; I'm Flying Blue Elite Plus (KLM Gold) and I just bought an award ticket for my brother ARN-AMS-ACC and back. Due to Flying Blue's tacky award system, my brother needs to spend six hours at Schipol on the way down (I live in Accra in Ghana) and eight hours on the way back home to Sweden. Now to my question - on his ticket it says that he can bring three pieces of luggage, two standard and one for the Elite Plus status - does this mean that he will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the Elite Plus? For example - lounge access at Schipol... I've really tried to find a clear answer but it seems to me that KLM either are reluctant to admit that it is ok, or either they have no idea that anyone could ever have such a question. Let me know if you have any idea on how to find an answer! Cheers!
