Yes, in cases like your own - and no doubt many others - it would certainly make financial sense.

That said, a neat way for EK to add another revenue stream ; as opposed to making more of an effort to improve for all customers what is, in general terms, a rather mediocre FFP.

In many ways, I invariably think of EK as a high quality carrier with a poor reward programme ; in contrast, say, to BA : an average, middle-of-the-road, carrier - but with a much better FF programme. But then perhaps the dichotomy is actually no great surprise, and indeed born of necessity so to speak.
