I have received the Elite card few days ago and also the Marriott Dining Card yesterday.

The Elite line is always busy and very hard to get them. They have not settle on my return fast track and lounge access this coming Sunday.

I used the Elite Travel service on my BKK trip about 2 weeks ago. The reservation process is very troublesome. Mostly utilizing the Fast Track Service which I will probably used most.

Just called them to book Fast Track Service in CMB and was told the service is no longer avail!!!

Last week I received an email from HSBC to do survey on Elite Travel. Seems to be they will put Elite Travel as benefit for their Infinity Card Holder.

They are charging us in 12 months time. So they are trying to find out what is the price range that is acceptable to the customers. This survey is worth 2000miles, grab that.

Well in general this card will have the Elite Traveler card benefit. I was told yesterday, they will cease the Elite Traveler card after 30-Jun-2012.

They will also issue you with Priority Pass card so you can use the card to access the lounge unlimited times.

Also $1 to get 2.5 point locally and double when you used overseas.

Suppose to be the card for the "elite" but seems they lower the standard a bit now. PM me if you want to know more as I do not think I suppose to say something in public
