Mileage programs… dontcha/just love them? Well, I do! Due to a number/of business trips recently, yours truly was upgraded to the Silver tier of CX’s Marco Polo Club. Compared to my friends who fly at the drop of a hat and are all brandishing gold or diamond, this is pfffftttt nothing but I’m thrilled at the extra privileges it has offered me even befofe i received the actual cards.
There’s the use of the lounge for free for the next year even when I’m travelling super-economy. Of course there’s also the faster check-in, the extra luggage allowance, priority boarding/luggage. But on the recent trip to KL, moi was actually upgraded to business for both legs of the journey! And this was after I was told that my class of ticket wasn’t eligible for mileage upgrade.
Viva la Marco Polo!
