Ok, the motion has now been seconded and gone to a vote. The exact wording is:

that the Lufthansa Miles and More and Swiss travelclub forums be combined into one parent forum for discussion of Miles and More, and Lufthansa, Austrian and regional airline partners, and one sub-forum for discussion of matters related to travel on Swiss. The parent forum should be retitled to 'Miles and More (LH, OS and other regional airlines)'.

I guess you shouldn't omit LX in the main forum's headline.

I am with this, but like flysurfer I would second to change the title. LX should be clearly visible as well.

If we have only one single forum, then please change the name of it, and don't let it be LUFTHANSA miles and more. SWISS Miles and More sounds much better ^

Spot on - LH threads quickly dissolve into off-topic banter, blessedly impenetrable to outsiders, but making the follow-up of topics frustrating. LX threads tend to be more focussed, and it would be a shame to see these hijacked by LH noise.

However, we should remember the forums exist to discuss FFP rather than their constituent airlines. And although my M&M card proudly shows a SWISS logo, the programme it represents is definitely M&M.

Forums for hotel programmes manage their wildly disparate brands under a single roof, so I bow to the inevitability of a merged LX/LH et al forum, but still hold out for a sub-stage to discuss SWISS-related topics.

Motion has now been amended to change the title of the proposed new forum to "Miles & More (Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss, and other partners)" following feedback from both on here and other TB members

Somehow I have missed this whole discussion so far, but I fully support the proposed solution, i.e. M&M forum with LX subforum. ^ ^

Same for me, I like the idea of a sub-forum.

Motion Passed!

On 7 April 2007, the TalkBoard unanimously passed the following:

Moved by Jenbel and seconded by Dovster:

that the Lufthansa Miles and More and Swiss travelclub forums be combined into one parent forum for discussion of Miles and More, and Lufthansa, Austrian and regional airline partners, and one sub-forum for discussion of matters related to travel on Swiss. The parent forum should be retitled to 'Miles & More (Lufthansa, Austrian, Swiss, and other partners)'.

... and already executed! That was fast. One thing to change though is the URL of "Swiss International Airlines". It still points to travelclub.swiss.com. I guess it should point to http://www.swiss.com/ .
