KLM 100 Event

Dear all,
I got a personal email today from KLM inviting me to an event on 06 or 7 October. Is there anyone else who got this invite?

Sincerely,

SB

What on earth makes you think they are smart enough to put two and two together?

Once about 15 years ago KLM Switzerland invited me to the Arosa Comedy festival including a nice hotel, Röteli to take home and if I remember well a driver or train ride. That was very nice, for their top Swiss customers. I was the youngest there by far. After that I became Plat for life, and while I still fly them at least a roundtrip every two weeks I have not received anything since I became PFL.

Once you have "for life" status, you've died and gone to FFP heaven.

(But the airline just sees you as dead. No need to court your loyalty anymore!)

Received the invite. I've got the impression it's for NL based Plat + PA and higher for now? If so, then at least they learned from the invitation to their golf event next week, where many high status pax responded "too late" (being 3 days after the invite was sent) and consequently got limited entry passes not allowing to enter the lounges with complimentary F&B during the event.

Maybe you plat4life guys also receive an invite sometime next week in a 2nd wave that they're happy to invite you to their event, but all complimentary F&B vouchers are taken already

If NL based plats, they must have made a selection. I am based in NL, plat, and no such invite. I probably would not visit such an event anyway, though.

With PA you mean that is only for Ulti's? That would explain it, also why some ff-ers in this thread did not get it since they are 'just' plat for life and have not enough UXPs for Ulti.

No there have been Platinums that received PA after reaching 400UXP in one year and it's supposed to be active from October when you have qualified. Will see next month if this is still the case.

To add a datapoint: I'm plat and have so far not received the invite.

i had 600 UX points last year. I remember because I was wondering what UX points actually where beginning of the year.

I have ave now almost 1600 UX points. I am very excited for what I probably not will receive! 😝
