You might want to check this out with 747800intercon, but the "three-year rule" will be gone soon, albeit supposedly with room for discretion if the computers happen to send the right signal to the person with said discretion.
Soft landings to go next.
You can say that again... Soft landings are great - losing that is a huge blow if it's true. It just means people will move to another program a helluva lot faster.
Let's hope it's merely a vicious rumour.
I have a 30 Sept reassessment date.
Been WP for 4 years and last year earned exactly 2400 status credit, 1200 the year before.
I wouldn't make it this year with 660 earned, and perhaps another 200 planned only. So far only taken 2 qualifying flights. Hoping for a comp this year based on my SC earned over the last 3 years (avg 1,420). Will need to find the time to take the other 2 qualifying flights though.
Suspect a lot of people would be very unhappy with a no-notice complete drop, especially if at the end of your own status year with no chance to rectify.
As a soft landing has never been an 'official' QF policy, no one should be unhappy (in any way) if they are awarded the status they actually earned in accordance with the terms and conditions of the program. Members are given a full year to 'rectify' any SC deficit they may have to the status level of their choosing.
