In June 2020 Qatar Airways offered a status match including for those with Velocity Platinum. That was extended until December 2021 given COVID restrictions preventing travel. Is there any news of a further extension given Australia is only just about to reopen international borders?

I am in the same boat, and was wondering the same. Surely there would have to be one coming.

Same boat - have pinged Qatar about it on the messaging platform and they said they are “monitoring”. If they wanted to take advantage of us in Oz that are only just being able to travel they’d be smart to extend like SQ already have.
