  • On LCAH front, I got my first status night just after my trip, and I received the second one + some LCAH points yesterday, i.e. roughly ten days later (which is not an issue at all, but just a data point on this new offer) :

However, if I refer to the "1 LCAH point for 2€ spent on AF-KL-A5" rule, I should have been granted approx. 420 LCAH points (380 if taxes are excluded) instead of the 79+68.

I will follow up on this with Accor if nothing else happens in the coming days, and report back.

Claimed missing reward points on LCAH website on Tuesday. Checked my account today and the missing points had been added.

Base fare + options included indeed.

Spent 540€ for base fare + 237€ on options and received 392 LCAH reward points (540 + 237)/2 = 388,5 - Guess the slight deviation comes from rounding operations. Won't scratch my head too much about it

On my side, I will have a hotel night this Thursday evening, so will keep you updated about my 5XP and status night.

At the end of the month, I will have my round trip JFK-CDG vis AMS. They are AF-marketed/coded but KL-operated, so it's good under the T&Cs, but I am expecting some issues on the systems failing to recognize it is a AF/KL marketed/operated. The fact that the KLM app anticipates the 5XPs and shows it in the app gives me hope though.

Will keep you up-to-date!

Happy to report that the additional 5XP from flying were credited to me yesterday upon the credit of my very first flight (JFK-AMS) of my JFK-AMS-CDG return trip.

On LCAH, I have received 535 points for that flight. Considering that I received 8,552 miles and being Plat, the base fare + surcharge was 1,069€, so I think the earning ratio is on the same base for LCAH.

I have now received 10XP (5XP hotel stay + 5XP flight) and both were credited surprising fast for me (like the day after)!

Cheers,

I got my Points+Miles XP on a flight booked before linking the accounts. XP statement updated very quick. I stayed with Accor 1st-3rd August, Accor account updated but no additional XP in my FB account. How long does this process take?

For me it took about a week in total, though only a day after the points showed up in my Accor account.

though does it show XP or UXP? Even LTPE can become Ulti.

There is no condition to have booked a flight/a stay after having linked the accounts. Flights/stays booked before are eligible.

AFAIK, there is no restriction. It means that all flights/stays post account linking are eligible regardless of the booking date.

I have a stay at the ibis in central Milan, near the main station, coming up in a couple of days. I will let you know what happens. But I don't find where you see the predicted number of XPs that you are going to get, including the extra 5 XP. I've been wasting my time clicking around (and it really is wasting time clicking around in circles, something I truly hate) the Air France Flying Blue app. Otherwise, I find some things about the app really surprisingly nifty: even my Alitalia and Aeroflot itineraries are displayed now!

I am a bit confused by your question regarding the XP. You seem to confuse miles and XPs.
On top of the regular XPs you earn with any eligible flight (according to the now well- known FB earning table), you earn 5 bonus extra XP with your 1st AFKL flight* flown after you linked your Accor and FB accounts and you will earn 5 bonus extra XP with your 1st Accor stay after you linked your Accor and FB accounts. Once you earned those one-off 5+5 extra XP, that’s it for the extra XP (you will continue to earn the usual XP with each flight). What you will earn for each Accor stay is a certain number of FB miles based on the price paid at the hotel (see the earning rate at the beginning of the thread).

*AFKL flight means, for the context of the Accor/FB partnership, an AFKL-marketed and operated flight.

Yes, I wasn't at all clear and your post couldn't be clearer. What I meant was, there have been some posters above who have reported that they had booked flights and their bookings have shown that they will (for example) get 15XPs instead of the normal 10. I don't know where it has been shown or where in my account I can see the predicted number of XPs you are going to earn. But it's really not a problem, just wondered how and where I can see that info (I use mostly the Air France app).

It's on the KLM app, not the Air France app, that you will see the number of miles & XPs expected to be collected for the trip (AF only shows the number of miles, not the XP if I am not mistaken).

In the KLM app, access your trip/booking, and scroll down and click on the "Passenger/View Details". KLM typically shows you how many miles and how many XPs you are expected to earn, and their calculation is usually good (on my last trip, it indicated I would earn 25,060 miles, and I ended getting credited 25,064 miles).

As for the extra/bonus 5XP for the first AF-KLM flight flown after registering for the program Miles+Points, I was the first one to report seeing them displayed in the expected XP (check my previous posts #41 and #56 ). I was perplex at first whether those additional 5XP corresponded to the Miles+Points first flight bonus, but as other FTers started to report seeing the same and indeed earning them, it became clear that KLM IT was somehow good in capturing that promotional offer in the calculation of miles & XP earnings.

You might or might not see those 5XP though, as it seems, from various reports, that results can be inconsistent across Flying Blue members, with some members even seeing those 5XP in subsequent booking...

PS: what you see on the KLM app, you can also see it on the regular KLM website too, in the Passenger section.
