Problem is that most fares will only earn 50%.

What is the timetable to earn Silver? Is it 30K within 24 months of the first flight? Or?

I'm actually not sure. The website is very vague about it to the extent that it seems that there is no expiry.

Award chart looks decent.

Question is how's YQ? Also any specific routing rules to be aware of? Redeemable online?

Not redeemable online. Only through call center.

I saw some reports online that YQ was quite low.
Will have to wait till I redeem the points to find out for real.

You don't have to actually redeem. How about call to get a quote in miles and YQ on some routes and carriers (such as LH, OS, LX, TK, LO, and MS on NYC-TLV route, TG, NH, SQ, OZ, on routes to Asia or Australia). Also, do they have any non-alliance partners?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Do you must send passport to open account? Can't u just do online?

Any other program on star alliance that offer even without the status.
I need to pool few members together not with same last name

I think TK allows some kind of pooling.
