Lowest Amount of HON Miles ever
 
I am proud to report that I probably have accumulated the lowest amout of HON mile so far in 2009 EVER:

11.242 miles

since beginning of this year even though I am flying every week.

Flying in LH Y class shows how low class the service for HONs really is. No personal word, no special treatment. I probably get more recognition flying BA or AF.

And service is just as bad: The red and blu HON tag on the luggage seems to have no effect on when the luggage is coming out at all (at least in Europe and US). Seatblocking is a myth, well that's a well known fact even LH continues to state differently.

The truth behind pickup at the aircraft: well only if there are not to many RDS and no one to be driven to the plane, so if a car happens to be available.

But hey, what am I complaining about... LH said they have too many HONs, so why would anyone expect immaculat First Class service when they are keen to save money.

I can just warn anyone to go for this service. Come with low expections and be prepared to spend a lot of money for a mediocre service.

Or be desparate to show off.

I am glad I am SEN based close to a "provincial" airport:

  • Seat blocking works smooth as silk
  • 11 A/F is always available for me on the 737
  • SEN lounge is pretty nice
  • I do not need any car to get to A81 or A71
  • I do not expect anything in respect of special service from my E class tickets
  • Whenever I fly F/C I enjoy perfect service.

and close to 200k HON miles: 5.000 from E-Class flights, 195.000 from A/F/O Class flights.

Poor HONs....

Seems to be time for your monthly rant again ?:confused:

I have to disappoint you. There are thousands, maybe millions, of M&M members who have got less. There are even many that don't even know they have HON miles.

You guys are taking all the fun out of it. I am actually looking forward to become HON. This is the first year I am close. Only 40k miles are missing. The qualifying flight will be LH492 to Vancouver on 30th of July.

A "mine is smaller/shorter/cheaper than yours" thread :eek::D

What are HON miles? :rolleyes: :D

I am 7 hours from the next HONourable airport anyway.

Jan,
why start a new thread everytime rather than just add your frustration to one of the earlier ones that you have started on the same topic. I think most of us regular posters have grasped that you are a tad disappointed by the HON package. That is absolutely fine - but do respect that others might not be inclined to share your opinion.

Cheers

Thomas

So a quick HON mileage run is not an option for you ;)

Poor HONs....

How did you get HON miles for O Class?

Tim2008 Jun 24, 09 2:08 pm

Buy Business, fly First promo...these tickets were booked in O class with a C/D fare base.
