  1. Thanks for the heads up. I narrowed this search to SAS and, while I didn’t find Russia for cheap, Stockholm is still in the mid-400s. You had tipped us off a couple years ago about Star Alliance Gold status by crediting our flights on SAS metal to Aegean Miles + Bonus, and it has been a great thing! I’m wondering if you know how the recent (and massive) SAS EuroBonus points-earning devaluation has/will impact crediting SAS flights to Aegean? Have you experienced anything yet or are miles still crediting 1:1 from SAS to Aegean? Thanks!
