After quite a bit of rumbling, CX has made it official: as of April 2016, it's revamping the Marco Polo club, moving away from using miles travelled and/or sectors as a way to gain status, to a new "point system" that rewards those who fly in premium classes but makes it much harder for those who fly economy class to gain or retain status. As I see it, they are basically turfing a bunch of people out of the Club.
I have my own take on this but I wonder if other forumosans who fly regularly with CX have any thoughts?
Economy earns you just 25% of the distance. Poo on that.
'earn and lose it when you don't burn them in time'!
