Air Berlin topbonus Report: Deny


From Qatar Airways Privilege Club
To Air Berlin topbonus Gold

It seems Air Berlin is not a full OneWorld Memeber. At least it doesn't treat other OneWorld Members equally to their own TopBonus members. E.g. additional baggage is only granted for TobBonus members, etc... This issue can't be solved with a status match as OneWorld members from other OW airlines (in my case Qatar Privilege Club Gold) will be denied. That is what the email says below in German:

Sehr geehrter Herr Gottschaldt,

Leider ist ein Statusmatch von oneworld airlines (de.oneworld.com) nicht möglich.
Qatar ist eine davon.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Ihre B. Hofmann
Ihr topbonus Team
