I've been in and out of HKIA five times in just over a year, the thing is, the timing of my visits always means I somehow just miss getting my quota of four visits in 12 months to qualify for the express channel at immigration. So, in order to stop the game of roulette is there a free frequent flyer card I can grab that will 'automatically' extend this to me when next I arrive in HKG? I have Emirates Blue teir, which is pretty much a 'feelgood' bit of plastic with zero benefits apart from logging miles to get a card that actually gives back, I was told by immigration that it does not qualify. And I'm Asia based, so the current airline I HAVE to use (Air Asia) is not part of the select few that cut it. Any tips or tricks? Thanks!
