No issue. See posters in DL forum frequently that don't catch this. DL only adds to confusion with some partners where base is less than 100% of miles flown. I feel base should also be 100% and if want less than the fare class bonus should be a negative percentage. (Just like it's a positive percentage for higher fare class) Course they didn't ask me.

Yes, my point was that the pre-landing meal service on the night flights is breakfast, then breakfast in the lounge, then breakfast on CDG-JFK unless you just want to sit around at CDG a few more hours until a lunch departure.

Sorry, misunderstood. I thought you were meaning you got the same menu on JNB.

Base RDMs which are 200% of distance and then 120% as a bonus of the base I understand not the distance.
Always willing to recognize if there is any data...
