This thread finally made me join flyertalk. Hi everybody!

Although having plenty of alternatives, I have been flying Swiss for the past few years on my standard route because of their frequent flyer programme. TC is rewarding and as a TCSM I have access to many lounges even when flying in Economy at discounted fares.

If the minimum mileage amount for discounted Economy fares was reduced, I would no longer have any reason to fly with them. Even if segments (such as in M&M) were relevant for status, I would only achieve FTL in M&M which seems to be far less attractive than having silver status in STC.

I have been missing a few things from swiss, such as an online booking tool for multiple trips/open jaw in order to reduce service fees, or pre-assigned seats in R- and W-class, but these were things I have dealt with so far. Should the conditions of TC change, I am definitely on IB or ESZ.
