Conclusion

SAS Eurobonus recently lowered the miles earned for certain economy fares by up to 95% (read more here) and now the airline changes the award miles required for premium Star Alliance awards without any advance notice. I don’t like the changes.

SAS has communicated to some members that they would have further capped (read lowered) the fuel surcharge cash charge of these awards but there is no information on award page about this.

Those using SAS Eurobonus should consider if the program is right fit for them or if they should use some other Star Alliance one with more stable outlook.
