no more comp pclub for intl plats
 
I was denied entry this am to the club in iah ... Agent said I expired , so if the program still exists they are leaving us behind

When you say expired - you likely mean the time limit for the day of travel expired? I assume you flew in on an international SkyTeam flight the day before and you are connecting in IAH to go home. In which case it would not be the same day of travel.

I'm confused - you were denied entry since your status as Platinum had expired, or because Plats on international travel no longer have access to the PC? Checking the elite benefits section for Sky Team indicates that this benefit still stands. Please provide more information.

Of course you expired. You're entropy! :D

I think the agent was just mistaken.

Actually, what I think he was saying is that his PC membership expired. In the past, as an unpublished benefit, international-based Plats (and Golds) received a full PC membership. The wife received one last year with her yearly elite package. Since she dropped to Silver this year, I can't tell you whether they did the same this year.

Assuming that he is still Plat and still international, then this might imply that this perk no longer exists.

I'm internationally based, I've been a Plat (comped from TACA) in 05 and 06, Gold last year, and Plat for this year, and have never been offered a full PC membership. Guess I need to make some phone calls to see if this is still on!

Perhaps it is/was geographically restricted?

I imagine that the OP has a TLV address as their 1P address and when I inquired last yr when I moved the CEOs address from his US to his Israeli I was told that the free PC membership is done only once ayr. And that it wasnt going to be done any longer after '07. I guess they knew what they were talking about.

As so many told me on the other thread. whats $300 for someone who is spending so much flying around anyway;)

Presumably if you're based in Europe or TLV, and are Plat, and flying CO, you're on an int'l ticket.

I suppose that this would only be an issue if you were on a stopover domestically. Otherwise ST E+ benefits would kick in, and you'd have ST lounge access anyway.

I bet the "Free PC" rule was a holdover from back when CO didn't have a true alliance.

entropy are you sure they discontinued the program?

I just checked with a, er, friend, who lives in the greater London area and he was renewed.

benolaa Mar 5, 08 10:47 am

Ah the fun of figuring out non-marketed programs and to make it worse COInsider is out until the 10th. Let the rumos go wild!!

actually he doesn't expire, he is continously increasing (in a closed system of course) :cool:

amislove Mar 5, 08 10:49 am

I'm a Germany-based Plat, and I can confirm that my complimentary PClub membership was renewed for 2008 (haven't received the card yet, though). You can check your expiration date online by going to "Apply/Renew Online" under "President's Club" at co.com.

Some "insider" from CO found out that entropy spends more time in the US than Israel. ;)
