I'd certainly like to know since when this change has been in effect and why this was not communicated in advance.
I'm new here, but have kept tabs on the info on this forum for a while. OWE for 10+ years and *G for 15+ years but moving *G to Aegean. I basically completed blue to silver in September. This included a couple of early morning SAS flights that only put me out of my way by an hour or so each. All 6x segments below were 'O' class and booked early September. All 6x segments were credited to Miles & Bonus within 48 hours of flying. All were Go Light. The Malaga flights were SAS Ireland.

AGP to ARN to FRA 70.70 2,577 booked 30th August flown 9th September
FRA to OSL to EDI 104.94 1,200 booked 5th September flown 11th September
AGP to ARN to NCE 69.68 3,010 booked 18th September flown 26th September

It's around 1st October that the notes were added to the SAS earnings matrix. Maybe around then there was some sort of change. But not for me during September anyway.

Nervously waiting....

Just come home flying SAS on T fare (GO SMART not GO LIGHT). Saw outbound flight credited but still waiting for the inbound/return flight credit... Needed for requalification...

Looking up credit time and ended up here... Hope it will be automatically posted to account in next few days w/o manual process...

Well as long as they keep their grubby hands off the 200% on SAS+ fares.

I've got WAW-CPH-MAN booked to get back to Brexitannia for Christmas and that's what I'm expecting to requalify for *G on.

The mileage earning is supposed to be an incentive to book SAS+ so somehow I doubt they'll reduce it.

Did you buy C or did you upgrade from Y? Since I did upgrade in Aug (PRG-ARN-AGP-ARN-PRG), flew in Aug and didn't receive any miles till now! I communicate this via twitter but also wrapped whole communication and created new incident. I am really upset to still not have miles in my account.

I bought outright for 271.60 return (ARN-AGP) as having read the issues some travellers have had trying to retro claim on upgraded flights, it wasn't worth the hassle. And SAS plus was reasonably priced (think about 120 return more than SAS go). Also I don't have the time to bounce around Europe so I figured this would save time.

I was originally going to go to Athens again on a fare someone has mentioned (one way flights from 85, the return was very expensive) but then I saw AGP return was cheaper. So it's not too bad at nearly 3.5p something per tier mile

I combined this with my 3-4th required BA sectors and double Avios promo currently running

I never need any excuse to go to AGP. especially during the cold and nasty winters in Poland, so I'll bear that in mind

Updated: today both flights have been fully credited automatically according to the chart.

Crud, 2 weeks before my kids flight to the US in O Light. So much for their Gold renewal.
I understand the logic behind the devaluation, but there is almost nothing that I can do now as they Gold period ends on Nov 4th. Frustrating!

Just to confirm - domestic sector OSL-TRD ticketed in O class flown on Saturday just credited to my account. 600 miles. Note that this was a fare WITH baggage, and not a Go Light fare. Happy to see that the system CAN differentiate between a GO SMART and a GO LIGHT fare, even though they are both ticketed in O class.
