ok. first time qualification is getting pretty expensive, but maintaining the status seems to be cheaper than before. - however mileage output will be poor on AF/KL - which makes me fly other airlines on longhaul.

number of (international) segments to requalify is also unchanged ... 60 segments a 5 XP
