Clearly yes, and personally for me it's highly irrelevant as I easily maintain Emerald without even thinking of TP/mileage and whatever runs.

For someone with no status though, it may be a good deal: baggage charges alone on a long-haul round-trip will probably be close to 200$ +lounge access (let's say 40$ on average)+ seat selection fees (CX charges 150$ for a seat in the emergency exit row IIRC). So, I can see why someone might want to pay the $263/month.
