    Just wondering, as we were not able to get this done on FT...best to keep organized if we get a crowd.

    One for Jet, Kingfisher, AI, etc...

    Edited to Add: My spelling on the thread title should be corrected! :p

    Jamie how do these Status points work? Similar to post counts? Mine is still on zero when I have made a few posts?
     
  5. Very good question

    It is definitely not post count. That is part of it. We tried very hard to create a point system that will reward good community participation. Anyone can just post a lot. But, are you being helpful to others and are you contributing to the community.

    We tried to create a system that is hard to game.

    So long story short, it is not important what the rules are, just be a good member of the community and you will be rewarded.

    You will see some points pretty quick.

    THanks Jamie. Also, I asked this elsewhere: "how does one become an "original member" on MP?"

    I think thats a very good plan. Post inflation is something that could get rampant and this forum should certainly be more quality!

    I think its a good idea to still keep all Indian airline programs under one super thread for now, but as Indian airlines continues to grow perhaps the best time to give them each their own parent category like other airline programs would be after they join an international alliance? Perhaps that would be a good line marker?

    LOL! 20 years later AI will still be in the main India page... KF and 9W will probably beat it to joining up with an alliance.

    KF (IT) is already underway to join OneWorld...
     
  16. Yup, was pleasantly surprised to see that they have already added CDG, AMS etc on the online redemption calculator!

    And they are meticulously making BA codeshare announcements onboard as well.

    I think its time to start flying IT more. Kind of getting p**sed off at Jet's partner redemptions. It takes ages to redeem, they are still living in the dark ages (fax us your redemption form and we will contact you in a few days) + they are all way over priced.

    I would keep it as it is (just ""India"") until such time as we get more people posting on milepoint about the airlines of India I propose a review in 6 months time OR until the first Indian airline joins a global; alliance whichever is sooner

    Does anyone know what kind of OneWorld status will match various IT status levels?

    no official story, but hunch based on all other programs is platinums will become Emerald, gold will become sapphire, silver become ruby!
