Don't think about it. The easiest way to get *G (Star Alliance Gold) is NOT through Turkish.

I would highly recommend using United's status match which is available until the end of this month. My velocity gold was matched with Star Alliance Gold for a three month period. If you meet the terms of their status challenge you'll then get it for a full year. https://www.united.com/web/en-US/apps/mileageplus/promotions/registrationDetails.aspx?promoCode=TB8230PS: Although you don't receive a physical card whilst on the trial, you can use the virtual card on the United App to get privleges with other Star Alliance carriers.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the eligibility criteria for the full year requiring it for flights operated by United or United Express? Meaning that they don't accept codeshare with other star alliance?

Stick with Velocity. The United Status match will be a waste of time unless you plan on flying a lot of United in the next few months, and will only match your current status. Pretty pointless.Velocity Gold is perfectly acceptable, Platinum confers no further benefits on your SIA flight other than an extra ~15% points earn per mile.
Sorry, are you saying that the united challenge can be completed by flying Thai Airways? If so how is that possible?
