I've been upgraded

I travel a fair bit for work and two years ago, I accumulated enough air miles to qualify for Enrich Gold, which gave me access to the lounge even when I'm flying Economy. However, due to all the cost cutting measures, our travelling had been reduced somewhat and thus, I didn't accumulate enough miles to maintain my Gold status and was downgraded back to Silver in March.

The other day, a letter from Enrich arrived in my mailbox. I didn’t think much of it as I thought it was one of their promotional brochures but when I opened it, I was pleasantly surprised.

The kind folks at MAS Loyalty Programme had, on their own accord, upgraded me back to Enrich Gold!

"Although our records state a slight lag in your Enrich Gold requalification tally, we truly feel you are one of the deserving few to retain your Enrich Gold status" was how they put it. Nice!

Thank you MAS. Your kind gesture really made my day, and it's always nice when businesses/organizations make you feel that your patronage is appreciated.

Yeay…I can look forward to accessing the lounge again during my travels.

That's y my hubby die-die must make another trip to Brazil so he can maintain his Kris Flyer Gold status... even with all those H1N1 cases there... *sigh*

Travel has been cut down so much so it is quite difficult to accumulate points these days hor?

Angeleyes - Brazil, so nice. I wouldn't mind going too, even with the H1N1 :-) Yeah, with the cost cutting, we've been travelling a lot less, and most regional meetings are now held either in KL or Bangkok, coz it's much cheaper.
