They were offering a huge status match promotion a few months ago, so I think they are refusing most applications at the moment. Alitalia however is seemingly refusing nobody and they are partners..I've been unable to figure out whether Etihad give Alitalia Elites reciprocial benefits.

I'm Etihad Gold & contacted Alitalia to get status match so I get the SkyTeam carriers & they had no issues in doing so. Straight to SkyTeam Elite plus status. Plus they also give the EY Gold/Platiunum benifits.

Every now and then they run promotions but its a lottery if they pick you. Have tried twice as QF Plat and still got nothing.
Only sure way is to fly them enough.
Thanks everyone for the info
