What are HON selections and are they worth it?

So I should be making HON in a few weeks.

But I have a bit more F longhaul revenue travel this year. Two to LAX, one to SIN and one to NYC.

Iím wondering if itís worth it to stick with LH group for these, or experiment a little.

1) What are the HON selections at 650k HON miles? And at the threshold after that?
2) I think, but have no way of confirming (except for asking here), that the selections are two evouchers at each milestone.

If thatís the case: Do you think sticking with LH group for these F flights is worth 4 evouchers?

Danke. That’s irritating.

Guess I’ll try for the cheapest F fare then.

Yes product is very important to me. But I don't like product lottery.

For example: AF does the 772, 77W and A380 on SFO. It's a very different experience depending on which aircraft they decide to use.

With SQ I have to find the 380 with new suites and even then no guarantees. Also it'll be my luck that the one with new suites will be 3x the cost of other SQ flights out of LHR that day.

Another factor is that these four longhaul flights in F would get me FB Plat or BA gold if I consolidated to one carrier. I do think that's worth something.

Surprisingly, am strongly considering BA. The first class is consistent across all planes. Consistently crap but it's consistent. And I think current BA F is better than old AF F.

Value of e-vouchers is very subjective of course. I actually like the Worldshop vouchers for EUR 100. Can be directly converted into wine or champagne at reasonable prices at least if you live in Germany (where shipping fees are very reasonable).

...as in spending a couple of thousand for a 100Ä voucher, worth about 80 in a real store? No way.

2 Vouchers are worth a lot more

Would also take the evouchers, although I have to say I find them increasingly difficult to use (with fewer F seats in the system).

Surprisingly, my next flight to LAX was just booked... but in LX. It was the cheapest F fare I could find, so I guess I'll be getting another FCL voucher.

The worldshop voucher doesn't mean much to me. I am only a social drinker, if that. And I've written off Rimowa ages ago.
