Successfully applied for the status match with Air New Zealand, I now have until 29/03/2019 to earn 450 points.
Question for the skilled (sorry i am a bit of a rookie to this).
I am travelling Business class to the US (Chicago via LA), looks like United Airlines from Melbourne (set by work policy - cheapest).
Obviously, in this instance, I would use my Airpoints™ number for this this to start earning status points and access the Air NZ International lounge in Melbourne.
My question is, due to this being a United flight, should I apply for the United Gold status match and use this, or are the points earned similar and end in the same result?
Thanks for the assistance,
