Well, the two QF golds in my family have been matched after over a week.

I on the other hand, as QF and VA Plat have been rejected. Resubmitting.
You may need to check the documents you submitted. Did you show current status with a late expiry date?

Did you actually receive a rejection email?
Not an automated one, only upon follow up enquiry. No explanation as to why, just an invitation to resubmit.

Yep, def had Expiry late 2021 for QF and early 2022 for VA.

And the resubmit gives me the following answer:
"Sorry, you've already entered the draw."

I give up and will have my family members guest me into the Koru club on the NZ domestic legs we have planned. There's no way I'm going to get enough Airpoints to extend the status beyond the bubble trip that has been planned.

Mine is just a pale green blue colour but doesn't have anything where yours says gold (maybe I'm too lowly to even have status - I have done a gold status match with them before

After prompting from me, SYD+1 applied on the evening of Fri, 30 Apr (matching QF WP). Downloaded the app yesterday and it was showing Silver(!) but ticked over to Gold shortly after.

Now to see if they actually get used!

My gold appeared this morning and it says I need the 100SC within 4 months but who knows what they will do if there is another lockdown. I'm not sure that I'd bother trying to extend it but who knows

Check your valid to date on the app.

Check your valid to date on the app.
The date on the app is incorrect, the email from Air NZ even mentioned this:

I meant more whether Air NZ will extend it if I don't qualify
I don't think they will unless a majorish lockdown occurs that limits people's ability to fly to/from NZ.

100 status credits isn't a big ask given you can get ~70 from a $500 one way business class ticket when on sale. The last sale ended recently but I suspect they'll be a few more over the next 4 months that should make it easy enough to qualify.
