KSML – The Reason for My KLM Upgrade Failure


Last week, I was in Kuala Lumpur and needed to get to Jakarta for the weekend. KLM has some tag on flights here in Asia like KUL-CGK, SIN-DPS, and TPE-MNL.  I have also taken the now discontinued BKK-TPE flight in the past with KLM.


These fifth freedom tag flights tend to be very competitively priced as was case with my Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta return. I sometimes buy these in business class, but this time I decided to pay only for the economy because the flight time is around 90 minutes or so.

Due to the short flight time and for the fact that the KLM provides a full service on these flights, it often makes sense to order a special meal. These are often delivered first and offer more variety than the food that they provide.

I sometimes order a MOML (Moslem meal), KSML (Kosher Meal), or any of the numerous other special meals the airlines offer. As my flight was from Jakarta on the return, I decided to check out how is the KSML option out from predominantly Muslim country, Indonesia.

The choosing of special meal on KLM’s website is very straightforward. I wish that all the airlines would have this process implemented as seamlessly as KLM. There were plenty of options and I chose KSML for both the KUL-CGK and CGK-KUL sectors.


The check in was chaotic even at the business class counter that I can use as a SkyTeam Elite member. I was offered an upgrade by the check in agent for 700K that is around $70. I made a counter offer of 500K IDR and we agreed to 600K IDR. Here starts the interesting part. They were not able to accept a credit card for the payment. Cash would have been the only option. I am truly wondering had KLM seen a penny of this upgrade for cash or if it had been just distributed by the outsourced employees working for KLM.


Anyway, I was then told that I am NOT eligible for the upgrade for pay because I had ordered a special meal.  BTW this is really often the case. If you have ordered a special meal, you are then not eligible for the paid or complimentary upgrades, because they do not have available your special meal in an upgraded cabin, and apparently they are not able to serve your economy diner in business class.


Business class at this price for this short haul would have been a decent deal; bottle of champagne, business class amenity kit, one of those Dutch houses that they distribute, and some edible food. But it wasn’t the end of the day that I didn’t qualify due to the special meal that I ordered. The actual flight time was 90 minutes and somehow I survived, although the Kosher meal was not the RIGHT choice.

Two InterContinental Ambassador Amenity Gifts

1 Comment

Part of the InterContinental Ambassador program are the gifts that both Ambassador and Royal Ambassador members are supposed to receive. This is actually written on the terms and conditions of the program. You do receive them most of the time, but I rarely found them good enough to take with me, however.

On LoyaltyLobby: InterContinental Royal Ambassador program.

Here are two good ones from the past month. One of them is better thought than the other though.

InterContinental Manila – Really nice USB charger with number of different plugs


I think that this is probably the best Ambassador amenity I have ever received, and it really cannot cost the hotel more than a buck or two when they buy them in large quantity. Who wouldn’t have a use for charging cable that has built in number of tips for various cell phones and devices? It is also small enough and includes a pouch as well that reminds you about the property every time use it.

InterContinental Singapore – Swiss Army Branded Knife


This is nice, but not convenient for a traveler that doesn’t check bags. You are not supposed to have even a small knife like this in your carry on.

These were the two gifts that were memorable from the past couple of months. Both were good actually. The latter one is not suitable for business traveler, however.

Time to Decide the SPG Nice Choice Promo Option

You have through June 30th, 2012 to decide the option of the SPG nice Choice Summer promotion that fits you the best. Sad to say, but this is the worst SPG promotion for the past four years for me.  It can work for some, however.


I have written few pieces about this promotion before it was launched. I got hold off on an internal Starwood memo about this promotion. They were expecting this promotion to drive few million extra room nights during the promotional period. Hope that it is the case. In my case it has merely made me to book away from Starwood.

Later, I had a post about a strategy you should take. You should read the original post I wrote about these offers.

Here are the “real” choices again:

1. Choose double points if you have no idea about the number of nights you will have.

2. Choose triple points if you are sure that you will have more than 15 nights.

You may entertain the following options as well:

1. Free weekend night cat 1 to 5 certificate (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) after 10 nights. Max 2. Downsides are the category, day of use requirement and the expiry before the end of the year. This can “theoretically” be worth 16K SPG if you use it during the high season.

2. 3K SPG after every 6 nights – max 18 nights and 9K SPG.

3. 500 extra Starpoints per night at Sheraton hotels.

Remember that you need to register for this promotion through June 30th, 2012.

Hyatt Website Problems Continue – Double Points Withdrawn for Award Stays

1 Comment

Hyatt has one of the most unstable hotel websites that I have ever used to book hotels. It can be down for several hours midweek for “scheduled” maintenance.

The only problem is not the instability of the site, but also the functionality. I have had the website to withdrawn points twice for award stays multiple times. It is easy to catch this when there are two deductions on the account history, but that is not always the case. Sometimes the points are withdrawn twice, but there is only one line on the account activity. Last time I noticed this only, because I thought that the balance quite didn’t seem right.

Don’t miss out on any important information about Hyatt Gold Passport program. Like LoyaltyLobby on Facebook.

This is probably not a problem if you only have a small number of points in your account. When you have hundreds of thousands or millions, like some of my friends have, it is not as easy to spot a double deduction of points.

Here’s what have been happening with my account. I made a reservation for the Grand Hyatt Jakarta for the Friday night. When the website prompted for a credit card to confirm it, I just double clicked the field and it was populated with the Amex number that I had inputted previously. Apparently there is something wrong with the syntax because I got the following screen next:


When I go back and correct the card number manually, I then get the confirmation number.


When I go back and check my account balance, you can see that Hyatt has now withdrawn the number of points required TWICE for this.


As I posted above, I have had this happen in the past when there has only been one line, although the points were withdrawn twice. When I have called the Gold Passport they were able to see this on their internal systems and correct the double withdrawal of points.

Buy Hyatt Gold Passport Points & Get 30% Bonus


Hyatt Gold Passport has just launched a summer promotion for buying points. You will get 30% bonus for buying Hyatt Gold Passport points between June 20th and August 31st, 2012. The maximum number of points that you can purchase is 40K for $960. With the bonus the total number of points that you will get for $960 is 52K. In essence you are paying 1.85 cents per point.


Hyatt had a similar promotion back in January.

Don’t miss out on any Hyatt Gold Passport promotions. Follow LoyaltyLobby on Twitter.

Does it make sense to buy Hyatt Gold Passport points at 1.85 cents per points? In most cases the definite answer is it does not. But, as always, there are some exceptions to the rule.  Back in January my case was Park Hyatt Sydney where buying points and then using them for “free” nights would have made sense. Not sure if the situation has changed since January with this specific property.



The other good example is Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo, where I have been few times. I don’t like the location of this hotel that is inconvenient unless you are visiting the nearby companies. My personal favorite of the international hotels in Sao Paulo is the Marriott chain’s Renaissance that is located in the Jardins district of the city.

The paid rates at Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo are really high. Currently the price is around $500 per night.


You can also use Hyatt Stay Certificates to pay for your stay. You can cut your price to $249 per night by going this route.



Surprisingly the hotel is only 8000 Hyatt Gold Passport points per night. If you buy the points during this sale, your nightly cost would be down to $148. That is a very good deal for Sao Paulo at the present as the Brazil’s economy is overheated.


One thing to remember is that you won’t earn stay or night credits for stays paid using points or stay certificates. You do earn points for the incidentals during the stay. These stays do not qualify for any possible bonuses that the Hyatt is running. My advise for those that need a stay credit is to pay for the first night and then use points or certificates for the subsequent nights.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Offer available for purchases made between June 20 to August 31, 2012 inclusive. Bonus points will be awarded upon completion of individual transactions. Offer only available when points are purchased for the purchaser’s account. Offer not valid for transactions gifting points. Offer may be withdrawn or changed without notice. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Only purchases made online are eligible for the promotion.

Price includes all applicable fees. GST/HST will be charged to Canadian residents. This transaction is completed by Points.com and will be billed as “Points Purchase Hyatt.” Purchased points are not refundable and transactions are non-reversible. Purchased points are applicable toward all Hyatt Gold Passport awards. Points purchased using this option will post within 24 hours. Purchased points do not count toward Hyatt Gold Passport elite membership tiers. All Hyatt Gold Passport Terms and Conditions apply.

Avianca, Taca, and Copa Are Now Star Alliance Members


It has been quite a year for the Star Alliance. Spanair went bust back in February and the parent of British Airways bought the BMI back in March. The BMI then left the alliance in April. TAM, the Brazilian airline, is expected to later withdraw from the alliance once the merger with the oneworld member LAN is complete.


Yesterday, Star Alliance welcomed three airlines to the alliance; Avianca and Taca, that both belong to the same AviancaTaca group, and Copa, an airline based in Panama  City.




Avianca has its main base in Bogota, Colombia, from where the carrier serves destinations in Europe, Latin, and North America.


There is also separate Avianca Brazil that used to be OcenAir. This is not part of the Star Alliance, however.

I have not flown Avianca, but I have Avianca Brazil, when it was called OceanAir.

Taca Airlines

Taca has its main hubs in Lima, San Salvador, and San Jose. The airline operates a narrow body fleet in the North and South America.


Couple of years ago, I took Taca from Mexico City to Havana via San Jose in business class. To my surprise the airline didn’t have dedicated lounge for its business class passengers in San Jose, but this might have changed. The flights and the service were both very good, however. I especially loved the dark rum Nicaraguan rum they served on board.

Copa Airlines

Copa is based in Panama City, Panama and was founded in the late 1940’s by Panamanian investor group and Pan Am

Late 1990’s Continental bought 40% off the company, but was fully divested by the mid 2000’s. Copa used Continental OnePass and now uses United Mileage Plus as its frequent flier program.

Copa has an extensive route network in Central and South America using its fleet of narrow body aircraft.




Somehow I managed not to fly Copa yet. This is probably due to my somewhat limited travels in the Central America. My goal is to have couple of extensive trips in the Central and Northern South America later this year or early next year.


All of these three airlines are a welcome addition to the Star Alliance. They must, however, get Avianca Brazil to the alliance once TAM moves to the oneworld. Otherwise the Star Alliance has a huge black hole on South Americas most populous and economically important country, Brazil.

Starwood Food & Beverage Credit Voucher


You can earn Starpoints for wining and dining at Starwood hotels even when you are not a guest. Starwood recently launched a promotion for their SPG Restaurants & Bars program to drive more non-guest traffic to these food and beverage outlets. You can get up to 30% discount off your bill for just being a Starwood Preferred Guest program member and earn some Starpoints in the process.

Last week I had a “dinner” of two Grey Goose on the rocks and couple of frozen margaritas at the bar of the W Koh Samui. I don’t normally bother getting Starpoints for items like this, but I decided to check out the process how they handle these.

The bill was about 2K THB that is $60. Four Starpoints per dollar should make it to around 240 points credited to my SPG account. I have an image of my card with the SPG number stored on my phone. So, I just informed the waitress that I would like her to make sure that I would get Starpoints for the purchase and handed the phone to her.


She filled out a slip that looked like an old fashioned credit card one with my SPG info and attached a copy of the receipt to it. Then she gave me a carbon copy. A week later nothing has posted to my account yet. We’ll see…..

My First Hilton HHonors Diamond Force Failure – Conrad Koh Samui


Over the years, I have used Hilton’s “Diamond Force” also known as “Diamond Reservations Guarantee” quite a few times to force an award stay in an otherwise sold out hotel. This is a unique feature of the Hilton’s program. At all the other hotel programs, which I participate to, you can usually use an override to open up a paid room at a very high rack rate, if the hotel is sold out.

Read my review of the Conrad Koh Samui hotel. 

I was going to Koh Samui on 13th of this month and had an award certificate from a friend that was going to expire the following day.

The Conrad Koh Samui didn’t have any availability, paid or award, for 12th or 13th of June.


Sometimes when you choose the date and then proceed the availability somehow opens up. It was not the case with this Conrad, however.


I thought that this would be an easy case for the Diamond Force, but how wrong I was. I called the Hilton’s Diamond desk to open up a case. They give me case number and informed that someone will contact me in the next 48 hours to confirm the request. I was really surprised to receive an email the following day that my request had been denied.


The Diamond reservation guarantee is very clear about this:

The Diamond Reservations Guarantee allows Diamond members to place a guaranteed reservation at a sold out hotel when made 48 hours prior to arrival, except during Extraordinary Demand Date periods, when the hotel becomes overbooked on inventory by more than 10%, and for some hotels when the hotel becomes overbooked on inventory by more than 2%.

48 hour guaranteed room reservations can be made by Diamond members online at HHonors.com by clicking “Reward Stays” or over the phone by calling the Diamond Member desk or the Hilton Reservations and Customer Care office nearest you. These reservations are only applicable to paid stay reservations for all room types and reward stay reservations for standard rooms. Promotional Rewards are not applicable for reservations booked under the 48-Hour Reservation Guarantee. For complete details, click here.

But the small print about the non-participating properties:


So, it was entirely my mistake of not reading the terms and conditions of this Diamond Reservation guarantee. The moral of the story is to ALWAYS read the small print. Luckily, the property did have award availability the following day and I was able to use the award certificate on the date it was going to expire.  I then used the “Be My Guest” certificate for the 15th of May.

New Starwood SPG Benefit – Stay & Night Credits For Up To 3 Rooms At a Time

Starwood has done some terms and conditions changes lately that have gone largely unpublished. One was the “Global Personalization at Starwood” where Starwood can now “spy” you on your social networks like Facebook and LinkEdIn. But there are other changes made as well.

Apparently, you have been able to earn points, stay and night credits for up to 3 rooms at a time since March 1st this year. If you are an SPG member and book three rooms under your SPG account number for one night, you will receive both three night and stay credits. This is quite a change. Previously you were able to earn Starpoints for up to three rooms, but you wouldn’t get stay or night credits for more than one room at a time.

Is Starwood Spying Its Guests on Facebook and LinkedIn – Global Personalization at Starwood?

I was trying to find out this info from the updated terms and conditions dated March 15th, 2012. This information, however, is not explicitly listed there at all:


There are no mentions that one would also earn stay and night credits, but this was confirmed by the Starwood’s social media representatives recently on FlyerTalk:


So, if you play your cards right, you only need eight stays of 3 rooms + one stay to make a Platinum status with the Starwood. This really helps, if you are in need of mattress runs. You can do three stays in a one night when the rates are low i.e. during weekends and around the holidays.

Hilton HHonors 3rd Quarter “Triple Your Trip” 2012 Double or Triple Points Promotion


Hilton just unveiled their 3rd quarter of 2012 bonus points promotion. You will receive double Hilton HHonors bonus points for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday stays. Weekend stays of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will receive triple Hilton HHonors points. This promotion is valid from July 1st to September 30th, 2012.


You need to register for this promotion in advance for the bonuses to kick in. There is a list of 495 properties that have decided not to participate to this promotion that you can find at the end of this post or on Hilton’s website. The terms and conditions also refer to rates that don’t qualify for this promotion, but only links to generic Hilton HHonors terms and conditions page. One of my favorite rate that is normally not a qualifying one for any bonus points promotion, PR13CB “Corporate Benefits Employee Offer, is not listed there. I would not expect it to qualify, however.

Don’t miss out on valuable information about Hilton. Like LoyaltyLobby now on Facebook.

Here’s how you calculate the number of bonus points that you would earn:

How will the Double and Triple points be calculated?
For the Triple Your Trip promotion, the Bonus Points you earn per night are calculated based on the average nightly folio of your total stay (average nightly folio is calculated by taking the total net folio of your stay during the Promotion Period, divided by the total number of nights of the stay). Triple Your Trip Double Points are awarded for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights in your stay. Triple Your Trip Triple Points are awarded for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in your stay.

US Net Folio: $1,038.38 x 10 pts per $1 = 10,383 BASE Points
10,383 BASE Points / 7* = 1,483 Average Points Per Night
*(replace 7 with total # of nights of the stay within the Promotion Period)


  • Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights (3 nights) will receive Triple Points
  • Triple Points is always 2 x BASE. Therefore, 2 x (BASE) 1,483 = 2,966
  • 2,966 (triple points value) x 3 (total nights that are eligible for triple points) = 8,898 (total triple points for 3 nights)


  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights (4 nights) will receive Double Points
  • Double Points is always 1X BASE. Therefore, 1 x (BASE) 1,483 = 1,483
  • 1,483 X 4 (total nights eligible for double points) =  5,932 (total double points for 4 nights)


  • 8,898 (total triple points) + 5,932 (total double points) = 14,830

So, I am going to earn 30 Hilton HHonors points for my weekday stays and 40 points for weekend stays during the promotion period as a Hilton HHonors Diamond member that has set to the Double Dip earning option to points & points.

Just a reminder that it might make sense to have Virgin Atlantic as your double dip partner because you can later transfer the Virgin Atlantic miles back to Hilton HHonors points. This is very useful if you have relatively inexpensive one night stays. The other option is still to have BMI as you double dip partner.

Eight Priority Club Promotions to Sign Up For – June Update


This is a monthly update of Priority Club one time promotions that are valid. These are all combinable with other promotions as long as they are not conflicting. If the code doesn’t work for you, you have signed up for the same or variant of the same promotion previously.

These eight promotions should work for all. The Elite member next stay bonus probably requires a Gold or higher status with Priority Club, however. The weekend 5K bonus points may require an address in the United States.Remember to sign up for the other on going Priority Club bonus points offers that you can find here.

You can register for these promotions at priorityclub.com/register.

Anniversary Bonus Offer – 6102

This is most lucrative of the offers. You will get additional 1000 Priority Club points per stay for 90 days after your sign up.  Just enroll just before your first stay to maximize the earnings.

1000 Bonus Points for 60 Days – 8108

You will receive 1000 bonus Priority Club points per paid stay for the next 60 days after registering for this promotion.

Edit: These two bonuses above are combinable.

Elite Member Next Stay Bonus – 5221

This works for sure if you are a Platinum member, but could work for Gold’s as well. Doesn’t hurt to sign up, right? You will get 3000 bonus Priority Club points for your next stay. You will need to have the stay within 90 days after signing up. You can only earn this once.

Welcome Back Bonus – 2120

You will get 1500 Priority Club bonus points for one stay after signing up. You need do stay within 90 days.

New Member Bonus – 3107

This is a new member bonus, but works for existing members as well. You will get onetime 1500 Priority Club bonus points after signing up. You need do stay within 90 days after registration.

Next Stay Bonus – 5109

This should be open for elite and non-elite members. You will get onetime bonus of 1500 Priority Club points after a paid stay. The stay must be within 90 days after registration.

Weekend Stay Bonus – 3136

This should be open for all. You will get 5000 Priority Club bonus points for a two night weekend stay. Weekend is typically defined Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights. The stay must occur before the end of 2012. Please note that I have had two weekend stays at InterContinental hotels after registering for this promo, but I have not received these bonus points. They might post later.

Edit: It is very likely that you need to have your Priority Club address in the United States for this promo to work. It did post to my recent weekend stay two weeks later after I had switched my address back to the States. It didn’t post to a previous weekend stay, when my address wasn’t in the States. 

Platinum 5000 Bonus – 3168

Not sure exactly how this works, but here’s the info about this offer: We’re pleased you have continued to stay with us and are now even closer to earning exclusive Platinum Elite benefits and 5,000 bonus points. All you need to do is register and stay with us 5 more nights before 30th November 2012. It would be our pleasure to reward your loyalty with exclusive Platinum Elite benefits. Keep staying with us and you’ll soon be there. We look forward to helping you make it to the top: Platinum Elite status!

InterContinental has had this promotion already since May 1st and it is valid until the end of July. You will get 15K bonus Priority Club points for staying 6 nights in the Americas and Caribbean (excluding the InterContinental Alliance resorts), & Gold status with Priority Club rewards.


You can register for this promotion at priorityclub.com/register by inputting the promotion code 2933.

If you are going to have 6 stays at InterContinental hotels, it would make sense to sign up for the Ambassador Program and get Gold status and other benefits immediately.

LoyaltyLobby.com: InterContinental Royal Ambassador status

You can also get 10% discount off of the Best Available rate by booking the IDICH rate code and paying using an American Express card. I am going to be in South America in July for couple of weeks, and planning to spend few nights at the InterContinental properties in Buenos Aires.
