e-mail at Last !!

Re my post 2 days ago:

As with other people I was happy to finally receive an e-mail confirming my (pending) "fast upgrade" back to Gold level yesterday.

Smile Web site shows new status

Also got the email announcing successful completion of the Fast Track upgrade programme (Silver => Gold), and still waiting for the new card to arrive-- but at least as of today, the KLM website displays the new status level after logging in...

(interestingly, the web site says the new status was valid from the 1st of August. I wonder how many FF's missed out on their new benefits for the first two weeks of August because of the delay in activating the new level?)

I didn't pass the upgrade threshold for Gold to Platinum because the prices of KL/AF/NW/CO tickets in June were so high it worked out cheaper to take two or three transatlantic trips in Nov/Dec and actually earn Gold manually. Since the Platinum upgrade only runs the the end of the year (followed by a drop down to Gold), the end result is the same...and I have more miles.

Anyone received his new card?

This is unbelievable, how messed up the situation is. Fast track ended 30th June, status reviewed somewhere in July.......we're already in September and still no new card.

Hey KLM, you know what, keep the card. It will save me some space in my wallet for the coming 3 months.

I agree - they can keep their cards - see my post about my 2nd FB Gold Card. I also registered with them for this but was told I had flown enough miles anyway for the upgrade (from Gold to Gold?). I now have 2 FBlue Gold cards and frankly have put both in the bin.

A month since we had those emails... I take it we're all still waiting for those elusive new cards?

Wonder which side of Christmas they will finally arrive...

Still not got my gold card, despite being "fast Track" upgraded. My online status changed a month ago and in five days I will have earned the Gold level anyway!!

This lot couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.

Thanks for this unexpected "present".

I'm not sure you should take that at face value.

Someone, in some other thread, noted that we will probably get new cards in 2006 based on the current year's flights, and unless you are Gold or better by then, better not present the card you got now at the AMS lounges because the dragons there have direct access to the database, and -whoops-

In the old FP rules, when you reached status in year N, it was valid thru March of N+2.

I believe it is still the case under FB rules.

Which, for ordinary qualification, makes sense. You qualify in year N with X flights. Now in addition to qualify for year N you have reached the re-qualify treshold for year N+1. And naturally the card is valid through 03/N+2.

If you qualify with Y flights in year N, Y < X, then you have not theoretically reached the re-qualification treshold of year N+1, and possibly the card is valid through 03/N+1 only.

Ok ok... I am a mathematician...
