Yes, I saw that. Not sure how much the lumo word does the needed magic though.
It is indeed interesting if OW moves in the direction of reciprocal benefits, but in reality I think we have seen the opposite in a few cases.

And no BMW ride today. Ratio is 4:0 arriving or departing with Norra without BMW waiting. Though as I said this may be a silly idea would like to try atleast once before they will stop the service.

As if all of the two Concorde rooms would be anything to die for... Both rooms in JFK and LHR are mostly for feeding some conceit and worn down. I would rather make it compatible to LH HON (or even to LH first class travel). Being escorted to the front of the first class check-in queue (mostly filled by entitled *G:s) and being escorted to the front of any queue, when boarding at the time of desire would be pleasant.

Access to these or the Concorde bars are not GGL benefit, but a separate benefit which previously was available through other means as well. In addition to flying First class.
Most of GGL benefit are in improved service and personal recognition, which I think will apply with AY and Lumo.

Which then is a part of the CK treatment I was asking about.

Anyways I believe this horse is dead enough, and in summary there does not at least yet appear to be additional soft perks on other OW airlines.

Today coming from ARN and Lumo recognition was that air hostess from rear kitchen came to say happy midsummer and welcome. Our Purser had something wild going on, she even mixed Swedish and English and forgot Swedish words during announcement.

Arrived gate S55 so it was bus transport to terminal. No BMW. I dont know was it due to midsummer Friday and IAU (not)working contract or was it due to stupid 14 days quarantine when You are Lumo but in a real life You are not Lumo.
Now 7 days since I climbed to Lumo but nothing from AY. No e-mail, no welcoming. I cant even change award points to tier points for free.

This quarantine is a real idiotism.

It takes like 2 weeks from the time when your status in the system changes to Lumo (and you get the upgrades etc.) to when they actually recognize you as a Lumo (you get the welcome email, can order the Tumi etc.).

Does this only apply to Plat->Lumo, or to all cases where you reach a new level?

So is it a quarantine or slow IT?

It takes time to verify the segment count is correct 😜

To be honeat I could always fit all of them in one but don’t want to get the shirts wrinkled and laptop bag is more quickly in use if not inside other bag.
A friendly gate agent tried to check in all cabin trolleys, status or not, on this morning’s ATR flight, until her colleague corrected her. She also called them “viili” (curdled milk). I’m sure she meant wheelie.

Luggage through checking seems to be no different from anyone else as a Lumo. Feeder flight on AY ticket/metal and onward journey on another ticket on AY code but BA metal. No through check of luggage. Ended up having a bit more hand luggage on the first hop than I was planning.
