Thanks for the info. :(

The change to HON circle qualification is really disappointing. I fly LH a lot in premium cabins but not enough to requalify for HON just from LH and a little OS.

In the past I've made a real effort to fly LH as much as possible and credit some UA flights also, but now I think I'll probably shift some of my flying to other * partners.

Yes, I do too. Even if it came into existence for an inferior cause.

Not as well as you will after a Y-lounge meeting in 2007 (for EUR 27.50 for
each SEN or 5000 miles but has to be reserved 2 weeks in advance).
btw I think this 'already' word is becoming awfully popular in American English
even in spots where I would never use it. Such as "do it already!". Wonder if
that is a Teutonism .. already.

I like that! I am sure Aly Mayrhuber and the forty consultants think up a lot
of thingies on how they can 'sell' rip-offs as customer focus.

You see totti there is always a bright side to these things.

I looked up in my milage acount and lufthansa set back the status miles but they didnt set back the status flights!!
At the bottom i can that i need 50000miles to become FTL and 23 Flights in Eco!!
Maybe Lufthansa is so kind to let us collect status flights more than a year so 16 months. Its for maybe for those who just get their status with flights and not with miles!!

Status flight rollover into 2006? That would be pretty fair.

Checking my account, nothing is reset, yet. So I'd wait a few days to be certain it's not just another LH computer glitch.

In my account, EQS and EQM are set two 0, LH updates the account only once a day (at app. between 2.00 and 3.00 a.m.)

Best wishes and a "Happy New Year"

Just checkt my mm account and both EQM and EQS are set back to 0. But if you didn't accomplish your 40 EQS a year you won't do 23 in three month, anyway.

Missed this post about "improvements" since I am on vacation.
Bye bye to HON as flysurfer says- while I am clocking 400-500 LH/UA/AC status miles with an additional twice weekly commute to IAH from LON, without HON miles for flying UA I will never make HON, as my LH miles are only around 250K- 300K per year. Now that my wife is based in the US, most of the LH European short haul vacation flights will disappear.
The rest of the "improvements" are not material- so long as they do not tinker with number of miles needed for award travel.

It is the german homepage and there are still 10000 miles bonus for the gold card.

Same here at an UA guy... it´s a shame to see all those zeros... :( :(

Nevertheless wishing you a HNY! :)

No zeroes for me ;)

Maybe KLM or CSA? They still give you miles for the cheapest economy tickets...

KL and OK won't help for flying intra-german. And I think to earn miles is not Hamburgers as you'll get them with M&M, too (even in T,L,E). With AF/KL FB you'll earn 187 miles flying cheap N-fare, so that's not really so much more than M&M's 125.
