Etihad Guest offering a status match to Gold

Etihad offers a Gold Guest status match every now and then, and they are now inviting frequent travellers to sign up for the next round. For those of you who are interested, this round of the status match will be valid for applications received till February 22, 2014.


Of course, the requirements are that you should be a Gold member of another frequent flyer program, that means one less than the top or the top most tiers in most programs. You should send in your existing gold card/higher, your latest statement along with your Etihad Guest membership number to before 22 February 2014. The members who will be matched, will be informed within a month of application, although Etihad has taken longer in the past. And yes, the discretion to match lies with Etihad, so not everyone may receive one of these shiny new plastics.

The benefits of Etihad Guest exist on Etihad as well as many partner airlines they have an alliance with:

amongst others.

I have to admit I did not fly with them much the last time I got status matched, but that was also because I was hoping and waiting for them to integrate with Jet Privilege. I am guessing that would happen sooner now, than later, which will allow me to utilize my status with Etihad more often.

Update: The status match conditions were changed overnight to be offered only to members in the UAE now.
