SAS Cut EuroBonus Points Earning In Go Class

Hey, Yo, What’s POPPING?

After one entire summer of “soul-searching”, “self-observation” and realizing things, I’ve made it back one peice to continue this journey of finding creative ways and lucrative deals to attain airline and hotel status.

SAS Cut EuroBonus Points Earning In Go Class


It’s been a short while since the announcement came out that from 1st December this year(2018), EuroBonus points earned on SAS go class will be cut drastically; and that most certainly includes my precious SAS go youth ticketing.

You may access the details of the change on SAS’s website here.

It’s hard to say which factors has led to such ‘sudden'(?) changes, or should I say that everyone has see it coming for a long time? 

I just didn’t thought that it would came so quick, so, as a result of that:

Here’s one of my past golden status-attaining strategy you can now wave goodbye to:

Use SAS Youth Tickets To Attain Star Alliance Lifetime Gold Status

SAS Economy Go Class Cabin Overview

There are even rumors on certain frequent flyers community (Flyertalk) suggesting that my aforementioned blogpost has lead to SAS executives’ decision of closing such “loopholes”.

I doubt I will ever be ever that influencial to start with. What I can see from such action is that SAS is trying to follow the steps of other Star Alliance airlines like Lufthansa and United. Just as how the baggage policy went with the SAS go light tickets.

As for SAS youth ticket, what used to give you generous amount of EuroBonus points earnings, now is still being offered at equally competitive prices, just with insluting amount of points. Ranging from 100/200/250/300.

This would kill all the possibilities of accumalting points and flying for cheap at the same time for all the Scandinavian youth. Not to mention how cruel it is for some customers who will end up paying up to 500 Pounds return only to receive 600 in EuroBonus points earning.

I will definitly update more reflections upon this matter and most usefully how to came up with new strategies ensure status with SAS next year.

As always, stay tuned.

    The better solution is just to give up and shift to A3.

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport

SAS A350 Livery Rear View


The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.


More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China. All students departing from China who purchase SAS flight tickets in economy class only need to show a valid student ID at the airport check-in counter to check in one extra piece of luggage. This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
