Silver status!

Got my silver skywards cards in the mail today. Very exciting, finally a silver member. It means I can now go into the Emirates silver members lounge in Dubai airport where internet, food and drinks are all free and if lucky get a couch to sleep on while awaiting the connecting flight. Last year on my way to Samoa I took Alex's silver card with me as he got silver status last year. So I managed to bluff my way into the silver lounge using Alex's card. You're not allowed to use your spouse's card. The next time I went through Dubai I tried the same trick again but this time the guy behind the desk did a check and said sorry that wasn't my card. I quickly put on my "ignorant" look and walked away before any further embarrassment, heh heh caught! Well with silver status I can check in faster, receive more points for the next bookings and goodness knows what else they have. I just have to travel some more now to get gold status(wonder what their lounge is like?!)... Ok I'm dreaming now...

yay you lucky girl. Enjoy your silver card and all the trimmings that come with it,who knows maybe just a couple more trips back home will earn you your golden status and all the privileges it entails.
