Airline Memberships by Category
In addition to penalising less frequent / non business travellers in the latest round of award program changes, I cant help feeling that it is also getting hard to get off the bottom rung. I fly with BA/One World a lot and I think that unless I also flew regular business travel with them, it would be almost impossible to move from the lowest level – Executive Club Blue to Bronze. That got me thinking as to whether the readers had any views on what % of members are in which Program level and within a Program such as One World, is it better to (for example) use BA or AA to book and move through the tiers ? Or is it all getting more commoditised in the rush to the bottom (Middle East Carriers excluded here – as they genuinely have better planes, staff, food and beverages, recognition, etc)
