Part of my problem is that the policy changed with no notification. According to Czech Airlines (from whom I have the card) this policy changed around 6 months ago. Some airlines within Sky Team differentiate between fairs, others, like Air Mexico and Czech, do not. So some kind of general policy would be nice.
I would concede that some reduction in miles might be appropriate for the cheaper fairs, but not even the segment? I think that is going too far.
I merely comment on it as an interesting strategy. Not all companies can afford the luxury of Business Class for all employees. Whereas in the past I would have preferred AF to keep my Frequent flier status, now I really have no incentive. I am just curious about the decision, nothing more.
