[Except [B]Prospero works faster than I can type! Just use your remaining posts wisely, a message valid for all FTers actually!]
Excited to post on the first day I guess

Not to be snarky or Captain Obvious, but someone has to sit in the middle seats near the back when a flight is full, and it makes sense and is understandable that is is going to be a no-status flyer on a very low revenue ticket than a frequent traveller on a higher fare. Some airlines still have long haul business class middle seats!

Sounds like another expat who lost his job in Saudi a couple of years ago when MbS got hold of the reins...
I too was Gold for a number of years based on shuttling backwards and forwards from LHR to RUH.
Now Bronze and will be busted back to Blue in July at this rate...
Funnily enough I still fly in J a lot as I burn down the Avios mountain...I just can't afford to pay for flights to generate the tier points anymore...

This Blue has no wish to rub salt into your Bronzey wound but is it not about time you changed your status in your profile?
