Are there any status matches running at the moment? In particular any star alliance airlines!

Hi most do this all the time as a one off - I have status matched with Air Canada and United Airlines with my Virgin Velocity.  Just email them and ask if they would consider it and provide a scanned copy of your FF card and statement.

Hey Louise, would you be kind enough to let me know which contact email address you used for Air Canda & United Airlines?  I've had a search but am struggling to find them...(I'm keen on contacting them ASAP as I'm off to USA and Canada next month) :)  Cheers

Statusmatcher.com is pretty accurate.  Don't expect too much joy from airlines within an alliance, CX seem to match QFF Platinum with their lowest or second lowest tier though.  Different airline alliances are usually good for a match but have all your evidence scanned and ready to send a suitably grovelling letter. (I once got a status match from Singapore Airlines but they needed to see basically all my QFF details).  If anyone has had any success obtaining a status match from BA or CX though with QFF upper tiers, I am sure I am not the only one who would be interested to read about their experiences here.

After approval it commences from the end of the month finishing prior to approval.  Eg, if approved in July, your annual reset will be 30 June.
