I'll call and check back in here for the info of others like @exceladdictIt's worth a go.
You do seem to fall outside of the current Status extensions (see link below)
But if they are handing out 8 months to everyone else who has not flown then why not you too!
Thanks for this.
It does seem unfair that just because my date falls in May... that I wouldn't get the extension. That extra month doesn't really give me a lot of time to wrack up the points.
