SkyTeam Frequent Flyer Programs

Compared to Star Alliance and OneWorld  the SkyTeam frequent flyer program is the smallest of the three global alliances. Apart from this some of the well known airlines are bundled together. And there are two good reasons for this. First it is the cooperation between KLM and Air France and Etihad. And secondly it is the advantages you receive as a frequent flyer.

Advantges for frequent fliers within Sky Team alliance

There are only two different levels in the frequent flyer membership programs that are recognized between all airlines, “”Sky Team Elite” and “Sky Team Elite Plus”. Sky Team Elite is the lower level . Only those two levels will give you the advantages in each other airline. Apart from this most of the airlines have at least one or more level that is only recognized by this particular airlines.

Advantges for Sky Team Elite members:

  • priority at check-In
  • priority when boarding the plane
  • free excess baggage: 10 kg with weight concept or 1 extra suitcase if piece concept applies
  • guaranteed ticket even if flight is fully booked. You would have to buy a full price ticket at least 24 hours in advance
  • priority at stand-by and on waiting list

Adavantges for Sky Team Elite Plus members:

  • all advantages from above
  • access to SkyTeam lounges
  • a second person can be invited for free into the lounge
  • baggage priority at arrival
  • a total of 20 kg free excess luggage or 2 additional suitcases if piece concept is applied

Compared to the Star Alliance advantages you are better of as a lowly status member with SkyTeam. Priority at check-in and boarding as well as the the 10 kg free excess baggage account for this. Although it is possible with Aegan Airlines with  just some 10.000  miles to gain gold status. As an alternative within SkyTeam the frequent flier program of Vietnam Airlines offers Sky Team Elite for just 15.000 miles. You can earn miles alliance wide but some airlines tie the amount to the fare class. Therefore you will sometimes earn no mileage on airline X as the you have bought a heavily discounted ticket on airline Y.
