I can’t imagine they’ll extend it again. Things aren’t back to “normal”, but there are plenty of opportunities to earn status credits through flying unlike last year where most of us were pretty much grounded by state border closures.There have been 2 years of that already. For good reason. However, the Free Ride was long over I'd have assumed.
LOTS of Elites will not bother to spend money and fly if status keeps getting extended for near zero effort. THAT costs Virgin money.
I've racked up about 1200 Status credits in the last month or two, costing a lot of money, on totally discretionary new travel, to easily lock in Platinum again. Seems like there was no need to bother?
