2 - Seriously, how many people anyway earn 300.000 AY+ points without flying long hauls in J?
Yeah, cannot disagree, my view is just so that Lumo is something that you wouldn't be able "buy" your way into, even partly..there are people who commute with corporate fares on dom/short haul where AY makes something like 30-50ish eur per segment (after taxes) and those people can get to Lumo and don't bring much at all to AY, even compared to many lower tiers. Another option would be to kill the segment requirement, that would serve the same thing.
