The accor rep on the flyertalk forums has said Diamond will only be achieved by earning 26,000 status points. So nights wont get you to Diamond. Platinium will still require 60 nights.

Mantra will likely take a similar transition as the other recent additions. I believe it took 18-24 months for those brands to be brought in. Banyan Tree and subsidarys have just been brought into the program 24 months after Accor invested in the singaporean company. Likely Mantra will follow sim...

I think also chinese mainland airlines silver level membership gives lounge access for 1 person. CZ and MU i remember do. CI gold is like silver level status and grants access to lounge on any CI flight to which ever lounge is contracted by the airline.

I always found sleep or getting more rest for the next day is always far easier going east to west. Maybe it is more of a mental thing I always feel like I don't have enough time to sleep on the east bound flight (stupid I know) where west bound I know the evening will be nice and long.A bigger i...

Looks okay. And also business lite like PE usually sells for atleast a few hundred more. I also find it difficult sleeping in Premium Economy even with extra leg room when sliding the seat into its lowest position my legs get cut off.

Yes sitting at the front of the B747 is always special. Luckily if you really desire a blast from the past CI 747s will be around for another 5-6yrs for regional flights in asia and sold as business class. BA 747s won't be going that quickly so we have quite a few years yet.

The theory is that this perk will be gradually rolled out As Accor need to negoiate with hotels. Europe is by far the most complicated and could take years to settle like it did for the free internet. Asia Pacific was more simple considering more hotels have lounges.

I think these guys have really high standards. Even the old lounge which yes was dated was still far better than not having any lounge. Of course I didn't try the new one yet as the airline I use is contracted to the new lounge Plaza premium, but still of course it would be surely better than the...
