Signed.

But, honestly, I'm not so sure I'd even *want* to go back to AF/KL. Direct flights on LG and long-haul on LH ain't that bad, after all.

Entirely too many -- and an entirely too reliable baggage service at CDG, between AF's long-haul operation and the Luxair feeder. (I.e., checked luggage lost every single time.)

There's full (including status) mileage credit on the AF/LG codeshare *if* booked under the AF code.

(And yes, it is bothersome that the feeder flight into Frankfurt doesn't yield status miles on...

Status matches from FB Platinum?

Hello,

does anybody here have experiences with M&M status matches for a several-year Flying Blue Platinum who's willing to jump ship over to LH?

(I've been a M&M base member for a decade, but...

Ick, that starts looking worse than M&M as far as economy earnings are concerned. Maybe time to diversify.

The soft landing for elites will stay in effect with FB, right?

Luggage, 2E/F, and 2D

Another AF trip, another piece of lost luggage: I was on a CAI-CDG-LUX itinerary yesterday (1h40 or so in Paris; there was enough time for some coffee in the 2D lounge), and luggage got lost again.

So, I'm regularly traveling on NW metal using KL flight numbers on AF ticket stock, and have no problem whatsoever reserving 10B on nwa.com if I'm early enough. Works like a charm for me.

In terms of product quality - if you're FB elite - AF wins hands down over NW, which operates these flights on behalf of KL, in particular when you're at risk of ending up on one of the NW 757...

Transatlantic food quality going downhill, steeply?

I tried NW 60 (operated with a 757) on BOS-AMS for the first time a few days ago (I'm usually using the earlier A330, or the AF flight) -- and got surprised by a particularly bland-to-disgusting...

I agree that things have been improving hugely in CDG in recent years -- e.g., doing a trasnfer from S3 to 2D is now easily possible within less than an hour.

Now, if they'd just stop losing...

Use the FB desk at a lounge

My latest retroclaim problem was related to a partially screwed up rebooking due to a flight delay. I took the boarding pass and itinerary to the FB desk at the Schengen lounge -- it was an affiar...

Strange. I consistently get 100% on the booking pages, but the FB partner page for KLM indeed says 25% on V and N.

100% on all fare classes - klm.com wrong, or interesting improvement?

I was looking into some flights LUX-OSL in May, through Amsterdam. Seems like (a) even the cheapest Take Off fares are shown to give 100% miles, and (b) almost all fare classes are now at least...

"As a....."

Is it just me, or are far too many of the comments there starting with an "As a foo bar, I blah blubb ..." phrase?

AMS-PEK -- KL vs China Southern?

Hello,

has anybody here tried the CZ-operated, KL-coded flight from Amsterdam to Beijing? How does the CZ 777-200 compare to the KL 747?

(I don't speak Chinese, btw...)

Thanks!

I'm using it all the time on Economy tickets. Worked like a charm with a Plat card.

(Actually, at one point, I was pointed at it by an AF agent, so I suppose it's a systematic benefit.)
