I was absolutely shocked with the level of indifference from KLM staff. They can not credit miles for flights I have not taken was the answer, and if there is anything else they can do for me.

Thank you, KLM. Not that I was attached to my plat status, it brings nothing more than gold. But still, I had expected some kind of flexibility. Do I ask too much?
Did you manage to convince the airline, to stay plat?

I thought that only counted for actual maternity leave, not just "travelled less because [my wife] had a baby"

Surely if membership level is lost, then that interrupts the 10 year continuous platinum needed for LTPE? I did ask them on Facebook about this once upon a time but got a pretty much non-answer. At least with the upcoming changes you can effectively bank extra segments as well as miles now...
