I am flying Cathay Pacific from LAX to HYD one way in Dec, on an economy ticket. I just registered for the AirBerlin topbonus account. Its not clear if I can take benefit of Ruby privileges. How do I make sure I can? I am specifically interested in the business priority check-in. Thanks!

I emailed them asking about it.
I received

“In your topbonus account is no company e-mail address.
However, a corporate e-mail is a prerequisite for this action. Additional changes to the e-mail address are not accepted.”

I asked for more clarification, as I did sign up with my company email address, which matches the address on my XING account.

Did they honour the promotion after making the changes required?
I’ve just done what they have requested. Not sure if they will honour.

It’s difficult to find educated people for this subject, however, you seem like you know
what you’re talking about! Thanks
