Proof of Situation and Reader’s Report
I’ve on 09.05. Checked the supply of a first-class Abu Dhabi to Paris mounted desk version Latam Cross, what luck! I discovered! Desirous to benefit from Al Safwar’s top quality lounge, I made a decision to depart Abu Dhabi and make a 7 hour connection in Doha.
I dwell in Asia and it could not be helpful to begin from right here as I might be paying the miles for a brand new area, so I fly to Abu Dhabi for round R$600 and from there to Doha. I do not fly direct from Doha to Paris to have a fuller expertise on two flights.
I ready myself psychologically and began calling Latam Cross by way of Skype as I dwell overseas. It was my first transmission by a name heart so I assumed they had been exaggerating a bit once they stated it was a headache!
That is after I turned professional. There are 3 ranges of service, the gross sales, the bills (often novices who do not know something about mounted tables and hold asking the supervisor) and the dream staff who spend and shut (typically I needed to work with 4, 5, 6 attendants) .
First I seen the entire lack of awareness from the primary and second stage employees the place I needed to inform them what to do and learn how to do it. Then the problem for them was to problem a first-class ticket as they stated they had been solely allowed to problem enterprise and economic system tickets after which the wrestle with the working of the fee system which was all the time down and I needed to begin over . .
An try was made by way of Whatsapp, with out success, because the system didn’t acknowledge the cardboard particulars entered on the cellphone keypad when calling to pay the boarding charge. On the cellphone it took about 15, 20 calls and 5-6 hours earlier than I managed to problem the ticket. The system was down, the decision dropped… It labored ultimately, after a 1:30 hour name, however I am beginning to marvel if it is well worth the trouble lol.
The reader’s emission is great since he used an actual one candy spot of the LATAM Cross program, displaying that realizing the most effective redemption for every program is crucial.

Subsequently, the entire technique of flying within the wonderful firm of Qatar labored very properly because it solely required 78,000 factors and one other R$372 in charges to fly in each segments.
