I'm pretty sure there's no issue using your Petroleum status in the location specified on the KLM website, given that you either have a physical or digital card. I suggest giving customer support a...

I think your mileage may vary. Depending on the circumstances, the kind of card and where you register for the card, you get different rewards - if any.

For example:

I'm sure that no lounge would provide a shower without a towel. I think hardly anybody carries a towel in their carry-on.

That's just exercise for when you guys leave the EU. And not unlike anything that has ever happened with low cost carriers in the UK (I include BA in that list as you have to pay for coffee).

$75 feels cheap. Especially if you don't have status with an airline. Heck, given what I've paid in the past to get bumped to an earlier flight I'd happily pay 75 bucks to get onto one.

I'm afraid they don't. They do have Facebook Messenger. In my experience they are a little less responsive than KLM though they always respond.

WhatsApp for KLM works well in my experience. Hope they fix it for you! Seems only reasonable you either get the actual or converted XP (whichever one is in your favor, I suppose).

Global Entry recently opened up (though for a limited time) for Dutch passport holders. I happen to be one of those that got approved during that time frame. TSA Pre included. My suggestion for Dutch...

Seems decent! Even cheap compared to what KLM offers. Lowest fare for business that I found was €450, and that was outside of the holiday season.

In my experience a foreign immigration official is very unlikely to notice and even if they would, I doubt it would be an issue. Things would be different if applying for a visa.

Just had my interview and was approved. Account got activated right after. Will probably take some time before the membership card arrives, though TSA Pre should work straight away :-)

According to KL customer service, XP are awarded according to booking class. Since a seat upgrade is just that (though I realize that if you get SkyPriority and lounge access it may be confusing)...

If you want a guaranteed seat, you'll have to pay.

I guess free upgrades could even increase revenue, as people are not going to take the chance of not getting a free upgrade and will pay for the...

Feels like an easy out for KL to me. It does, of course, depend on how broken things actually were. A broken light switch isn't going to get you and EMD, though if the seat doesn't convert into a bed...

While advantageous for some, I still can't wrap my head around someone getting (for example) 30XP for AMS-LCY and just 12XP for JFK-LAX in business.

If you just fly Delta, I'd say FB wouldn't be...

I've been wondering why they're so conservative with upgrades for elites (especially for Gold&Plat). Filling up premium economy or business with your most loyal customers doesn't seem to have a real...

That's what I thought, but I got 21XP so it seems they do take into account that little bit over 4000.

I had the same thought about this being a missing conversion, though most of my spend during...

I got it as well: 21XP for 4193 level miles for my AF/KL spend. Seems they are converting at 1XP per 200 level miles. If this is how they're going to do it from now on it will greatly add to the...

So, heres something I didn't see coming. I was just credited 21XP for my AF/KL AMEX spend level miles. I wasn't expecting that. Anybody else got this as well?

Got it as well, though I guess with smartphones the only "advantage" of physical cards is the luggage tag.
