EK 4th Tier Benefits Announced

You guys might be interested in this
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/emira...-platinum.html

We think most EK Gold members received this email yesterday and the whisper is that the program will be officially launched this Mon/Tues.

Safe to assume all QF Platinums, Platinum Ones and CL members will have F lounge access in DXB

Of course, there is the speculation that QF WP may become harder to attain/maintain in the future.

Skywards status is 25K, 50K and 150K Tier Miles.

If there were changes with QFF status earning levels an equivalent structure could, for example, be 350, 700 & 2100 SC's.

Unless I am missing something, it is speculation. EK has not actually announced it yet at all.

When it is announced, this thread title will be accurate; at the moment it is claiming an announcement when it is , as far as I can see, speculation

There may be some who don't I'm hoping that they do manage to keep non F passengers out of the DXB F lounges. I like how EK lounges tend ( on trips I do) to be much less busy than Qantas lounges.

I suspect that the QF F lounge would be such a pleasant place without difficulty getting tables if access was restricted

At least I know to hold off purchasing EK tickets that I have planned for the next few days

EK doesn't care. Just so long as QF pays EK when QF SLF enter the lounge. Just part of EK's strategy to drain cash from QF FF. First comes the First lounge, tomorrow the world ...

I am not convinced that this is necessarily the case that they are happy to sell out the 1st lounge access

If something is speculative then make it clear that it is rather than making it out as having been announced

Now it could be quite accurate to post such, but wasnt yesterday

There's will still be speculation - otherwise it would not be FT.

Like, will QFF change their Status Qualification/Re-qualification levels/structure to align somewhat with Skywards?

Why would they do so? What if they do so? How would they do so?

Which is fine....but not posted as being official or as being actually announced when it is still speculation

Unless I am missing something the only speculation here is that the OP was stating that EK had announced it. I see nothing to suggest that in this thread title. The OP links to an announcement by danblar in another thread. Anyone can announce something. The announcement could have been made by President Obama. If readers wish to assume words that are not there eg by EK or officially then they are the ones speculating not the OP

The thread title was always accurate, the misinterpretations put on it by some who may not value the actual meaning of words within the English language were always inaccurate

Thanks to the OP for linking to danblar's announcement of EK's new tier level which has since been shown to be accurate by EK's own announcement. ^
