Not on topic but economy is fine when combined with Silver status for me at least.
Can you provide an example of how a long haul econ yields 140TP? The only instance that happened with me in my examples were the London-China via Doha trip, which required layovers (35TP each segment). Every other flight I've taken in econ (at the fare class offered at time of booking) was around 20TP ea. Even London-Australia was only 20TP/sector giving me 80TP ea time.
