This has been an interesting one to track right from the start. A week or so ago, SkyTeam member airlines Air France / KLM offered to match to Gold status in their FlyingBlue program anyone who was Gold status on another airline. The terms were generous and one had until May 30 to apply.
Then they realised, they forgot including the relevant geographies in the application. So, the offer was amended to include the Scandinavian countries, and the timeline was reduced to February 28 as the last date of the offer.
And now, it is gone, a month in advance.
Talk about bad copy botching up a campaign. Possibility does exist that FlyingBlue hit their numbers expected real quick, and maybe will honor the offer for all non-residents of Scandinavia as well. A boy can dream, right?

- Flying Blue offers another chance to status match Gold Status (SkyTeam ElitePlus)
