is it possible to make Gold in your first year of membership?? I have just hit Silver after 2 months and will make Gold in about 6 weeks flying economy Syd-Sin-Syd frequently.

Many thanks for your reply and yes I did hit the 50k miles mark and was upgraded to Gold. I joined in Dec 16 and reached gold in late April with economy Syd-Sin-Syd trips. I agree that the the Gold KF lounge in T3 at Changi is really rubbish.
Hi Flying Visit. Today I re qualified for KF Gold for the second time since Feb . IE: 52k miles from Feb to July. Im guessing Im now sorted at KF Gold through until 2019 so a reasonable result I suppose. I am going to drop them a line and appeal to their sense of 'fair play' . I've done 30 or so legs with them this calendar year and can't progress to PPS due to economy travel. I do like your suggestion on Thai, thanks however Im about to hit QF Gold in late August so plan to go all out on QF (Syd -HKG and Syd -Sin) and get to Platinum by late Sept. I wonder if SQ might status match a QF Platinum..who knows Will let you know how it goes!

I was a KF gold then decided to use my points to part pay for my BNE to LHR flights. Didn't realise this meant I lost Gold the next year. Is SQ unique in basing their levels on mileage points rather than status points?
