If you want to stay in Europe, then the leisure-heavy routes usually have better Plus prices - AGP always seems cheap and ATH usually isn't too bad. As you say, August is NOT the best time for those...

1. Yes, I always contact them by email for complicated things like that. You usually get an auto-reply within minutes registering your query and an actual reply in 24 to 48 hours. I used to use...

I said this in the previous thread and I don't think the new XLR aircraft change the argument much at all. I think the only realistic way A3 MIGHT make some long-haul work would be with one-stop...

CHQ isn't very convenient if you're going to Heraklion though, is it? :p

Seriously though, I had no idea there was a new airport planned to replace HER. The place is indeed a dump but I like how...

Well it's T-158 days for my MAD flight and I've STILL not been upgraded. Very frustrating :p

Seriously, the upgrades seem to take place at any time. I had a friend who I'd upgraded, mainly because...

Just out of interest, I'd be keen to know which OTA you are saving $$$ with. I've done that in the past, but in the last 12 months I haven't found anywhere truly, meaningfully cheaper than buying...

Yes, it's a minimum 600/1200 for the SAS flights you mention. Just be careful that there has been talk for a long time that earnings on SAS will be cut "any time". It's not happened yet and the last...

No, but he just wants to link up the outbound and return points with any reliable form of public transport.

Since we're moving on to international points, I'd also suggest pairing AMS with DUS...

CHQ/HER would be the most reliable for year round transport. Bus CHQ-Chania City (20 mins) meets all Aegean flights, then there is an hourly service to Heraklion Ciy which takes around 3hr15, then a...

It does sound strange. Can you show a screenshot of what it says is required? There should be two options, with and without A3 flights - something like "To upgrade to Silver you need xxxx miles...

I was just going to mention TLL. It really is the 'nicest' airport I've been to in Europe. It may not be "best" but that all depends on your requirements. It has a library, art gallery and even gym...

Well, with status those things aren't really an issue (except the seat if you absolutely HAVE to have them). I've never paid for a checked bag with A3, nor for a seat. Food isn't chargeable so that's...

It shouldn't make any difference really (except the addes 'stress'). If you have to retro-claim the flights will still credit to the original dates of the flights, not later. Adding to what Xandrios...

All the lounges are airside (where you will arrive) but you don't have access as an arriving passenger - unless you're connecting onto another *A flight. Probably the best place would be to relax in...

I agree. It's very annoying and there is a long thread about it somewhere. It would cost them nothing to at least release those seats at check-in time (t-48hrs), even if not at the time of booking....

My guess would be that it WOULD be upgradeable. Aegean probably can't even see the KLM sector. Just look at your booking on the A3 site, using the ticket number - it probably shows up as a one-way...

Fair enough. I hadn't seen that. But it does seem to go against the new "Transfer Miles" facility which DOES allow you to "dispose" or "assign" your miles to any other member. When adding that...

Is this 125% real or an urban myth? Yeah - I can see that there must/should/might be some limit, but I've asked before and never had reference to the actual "rule" that states this. Isn't it more...

Hi. Does anybody here know if domestic flights operated by Portugalia are treated the same as mainline TP flights in terms of non-TAP *G benefits? I'm A3 Gold and there are many complaints over on...
