It's a VERY sensitive matter over in the M&M room. Some years' back Lufthansa lured a pack of BA Goldies to LH Senator level, in a rather odd status-swap with all sorts of upgrade and overdraft goodies thrown in.

The story goes that the barbarians sacked the programme for all they could get and then left. Thus causing a wide-spread devaluation of Senator benefits. Or so the story goes.
