    Haven't been able to find anything and the *A website still talks of Aegean joining in the future - Can *A upgrades be had with Aegean miles?

    The below quote is sort of cryptic - at least to me. A dated webpage stating that Aegean et al will be joining *A in the future? Or is it referring to which airlines will allow their miles to be used for upgrades in the future? Or???

    Thanks

    Have you tried to contact A3 yet? Not every *A member allows their miles to upgrade on other *A flights at this point. Off hand I don't know if A3 does this yet. Best bet is to try to get the answer from them.

    Interesting question. Since several of those *A members are longstanding *A members, my hunch is the language about being "set to join" refers to set to join the upgrade program.

    If correct, this would be a great outcome to how to actually use these bloody A3 points.

    Thanks. Importantly for me, if useful for an upgrade, I can advise a colleague that wanted lounge *A lounge access on the cheap [my suggestion on A3 via what I think was one work paid for business class ticket to Asia] what to do with those, aptly termed, bloody A3 miles.

    Cheers -
