I have the privilege to travel several times per year to my home country, the Netherlands. Every time I look for the best flight options in terms of schedule and price I am surprised by the enormous differences in the offers by various airlines. As Ethiopian Airlines is now member of the STAR Alliance, I was of the impression that conditions and services would be similar across the Alliance. This is not so however because all member airlines still follow much of their own systems in regards to prices, baggage allowance and services. I also thought that my Shebamiles membership would allow me to access the benefits of the other airlines. This is also not always so. In fact frequent flyer benefits seem even to have gone down, unless you have penetrated to the highest award categories perhaps. Never mind, as the main purpose is to travel from A to B in the most efficient way. Add a comment
