European (or even single European country) hotel pass: I could not find any examples of this existing for Europe (there seem to be some hotel and hostel passes in NZ and Aus). I tried generic serach terms, and also dug around the websites of: Marriot, Hilton, Accor, Ibis, Best Western, HostelingInternational, HostelWorld, Generator Hostels, Wombat hostels. ...

To the best of my knowledge such a pass does not exist for Europe as of now. This does not exclude its existence, but it is highly unlikely.

No, you will not get frequent flier credit if you do not fly. Irrespective of whether you check-in or not. Even if you go on board and then decide not to fly, you will be unloaded from the manifest and will not get credit*. Airlines are required to know exactly who is on board for a multitude of reasons, some of which are regulatory, and some of which are ...

When you board the plane, the ground staff scans your boarding pass, indicating in the computer systems that you've boarded the plane. One obvious consequence of failing to board the the plane is that the airline will remove any luggage you have checked before allowing the plane to depart. Another consequence that may be less obvious, but that we can ...
