It sounds absurd, and no it isn’t April 1, but one frequent flyer program has introduced a fee to claim missing mileage. Yes that is right. If the airline fails to credit mileage then a fee is applied to get it fixed. Read about it, and the reactions, in LAN’s 1000km fine for missing mileage.
That’s right – you read that correctly.
Details can be found in the Free 5,000 LANpass kilometers for opening frequent flyer account by Dec 31 thread.
Hurry! Like the thread title states, you only have until 31 December 2007 to take advantage of this offer.
