Nah, they would call that Extra Baggage Allowance surely, not someting totally obscure like Fee Waiver.

I would say the ability to upgrade using skywards miles is the best benefit - or is that too obvious?

I meant that was what I was voting for!

Upgrades are a good benefit but they are a massive PITA to get now.

How come there is no mention of any Platinums - only Golds and Silvers?

An upgrade waitlist should be created so you don't have to ring them a billion times, or pray you can upgrade with miles at check in. If one becomes available, you should be offered it on a first come, first serve basis. That is all

This exists. You can call Emirates and be waitlisted for an upgrade. If and when upgrade seats become available, they email/call you to confirm the upgrade. It even shows in MMB.

I'm Gold. I don't know which tiers this is available for.
