not Accor (it’s not as good as I remembered) but

https://prioritypass.com/campaigns/d...5&currency=EUR

standard membership (10 visits) €187

But I prefer the free Dragonpass via Dufry with $28 per visit for when I’m not on OW/*A/ST or BT ie hardly ever

Does the Finnish Amex have a limit on how many MR points can be converted to Finnair adios?

The swedish Amex now has a limit of 990 000 MR per year corresponding to 49 500 adios /year

Not yet, but even if it happened you could convert some points to BAEC and Iberia and then use the Avios transfer through BAEC to Finnair plus. Of course only once that feature is there.

Yeah, once transfers inside the adios walled garden it would not matter that much.

But why would they even add such a limit? 49,5k is not even enough to redeem a longhaul oneway in business.

And the exchange rate is not that good. 990k swedish MR is over 85kEUR in spend. Compared to what they pay for spend with Aktia card it seems strange to limit the exchange of swedish MR if there are people willing to do this.

I dont know but both my UK and NL issued AMEX can no longer transfer to Finnair. Not a single announcement or message on the transfers page either, Finnair simply disappeared from the page

Aha, then this sounds more and more like there is something cooking in this adios-cooperation. Aktia K-plussa awaits "approval from UK", Amex SE has limit transfers and other markets have entirely closed points transfers...

I really hope that you confuse Aktia with K-plussa!!
