1200 - 1500 vs 2300 members - this against the backdrop of total flying PAX on LX - should it not mean that LX would be better off or do not all Circle members qualify over the mileage level initially before "going in front" of management approval. Assuming that not all are approved the Circle customer basis would even be larger. Somehow given the financial woes this does not add up.

Just curious.
