Detta (se länk) kanske kunde vara ett intressant alternativ för SAS för att locka till resande och fylla upp kabinen och minska berget av oinlösta eurobonus poäng.

TIER POINTS ON AWARD FLIGHTS TIED TO COVID-19 RECOVERY PLAN Under the new policy, all members of Virgin Atlantic Flying Club will earn tier points regardless of how they book their flights – with cash, Miles Plus Money, or with Flying Club miles. The move makes it easier for frequent flyers to get closer to elite status no matter how they choose to pay for their travel. “The introduction of tier points for redemption flights is an industry-leading move that will help customers progress to Silver or Gold membership more quickly and, in turn, enjoy even more rewards with their membership,” Oli Byers, senior vice president of data and customer loyalty at Virgin Atlantic, said in a press release. “We also know our customers love the vouchers we offer, so we’ve improved these to make the conditions simpler and more generous so they are even easier for customers to use.” The move is one of several by the British carrier encourage travelers to return to the skies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Virgin Atlantic previously extended all flyers’ elite status by six months in March 2020, and will extended them another six months on Sept. 1, 2020. The extension allows flyers to take advantage of their full status benefits when they are comfortable traveling again. In addition, flyers will have more time to use miles or take advantage of elite status rewards. The extensions will soon be reflected when users login to their accounts.
