Do I need a Status Run or will Status Extension cover it?

With all the back and forth on changes to Status Support from QF I'm kinda confused and need a second (or third or fourth) pair of eyes to check my thinking.

I have a 31 July 2021 status end date. Currently Platinum and with flights and bonuses showing on my account I will end the status year with 1,160 SC, ie 40 short of the regular retention requirements. I would do a Status Run to make the extra 40 SCs and keep Platinum if this was a normal year BUT ...

My reading of the Status Extension announced in November 2020 means that despite falling a little short having booked and eligible flight in the required period I will be granted an extension of my Platinum status until 31 July 2022. Is my understanding correct?

Obviously that saves a status run for the 40 SCs I am short.

Also remember that any SCs that you earned (i.e. not gifted by QF with Status Boost or Support) in your current membership year will be rolled over to your new membership year at the beginning of August. You would have received 600+100 for Boost and Support so the remainder of 460 from your current balance will start you off to retain for next year.

Thanks!

I thought so but wanted to check - would HATE to miss renewal because of 40 SCs
