    I'm a bit short to make gold. FWIW, I only fly paid F and sometimes C on 2 class routes. Will they still renew my EK Gold?

    • Current Tier: Gold
    • You require 2,324 additional tier miles by 28 Feb 2011 to renew


    I have no planned flying between now and end of Feb.

    If they don't renew, no big deal as with the rolling system I will probably requalify soon anyway.

    It's hard to say...would help if you had a trip booked in March to show them (or even end Feb). How long have you maintained Gold status with EK, after the end of Feb this year - do you remember how much you travelled this time last year (ie Feb/Mar), as it is those miles you will need to factor into rolling qualification system.

    Feb/Mar last year I didn't do a lot. 10k or so.

    Dec 10 & Jan 11 I did 42k though.

    What's the benefit of Gold status if one travel in First anyway ?
     
    loadera and piqaro like this.
  5. I think you should just write them and ask for some other way to do it. There maybe some promotion that gives toy the needed miles. Be sure the Kiss their *ss in writing. Overall, you have nothing to lose :p

    Not much. Bonus miles mostly. 3 class F seats on 2 class routes is pretty common too.

    I had better service on the ground with luggage issues too. Not sure if that was for being Gold or not though.

    Is there really tier miles promotions? I've never seen one.

    If so, I would have thought I get them anyway? i.e. as part of miles accelerator or smoething?

    Miles accelerator is award miles only.

    The only benefit I can see is the fact that you can take a guest into the lounge. People who travel in F or J and who don't hold any status (or are Blue or Silver) cannot take a guest.

    I have posted this somewhere before here.

    I´m justing starting to use EK. I booked F-flights on that amazing Athens deal. Wrote to EK in Germany and UK just to find that the local EK office was interested in me as a customer. They offered me Gold immediately if I would book one more flight in C which I did...

    I therefore agree with eightball be in touch with the local sales office and be nice. It sometimes helps...
