Anyone know of any airline in Oneworld who would do a status match from Velocity Platinum?

AB were doing one last year. Can't see anything on the site to say it has stopped

I believe the airberlin status match is still available, but only to Silver or Gold status (i.e. not Platinum), and only to residents of a select few countries (not Australia).

From the terms & conditions on the AB website:

  • A Status Match is available for Silver and Gold status and may only be applied once and once only for the same status
  • This Status Match offer is valid only for select frequent flyer programme of other airlines
  • This offer is only available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and USA.

Hi there, newbie on FF advice, but i've read somewhere that you can try to create a mail forwarding address from USA (hopshopgo or shopmate which is AusPost owned) and try use that address in your application.

I've had success before using a friend's NZ address for status matches, so you could also try that, although I've had to live without the luggage tags for the full duration of my upgraded membership :(

I don't think many OW FF programs would be too interested in status matching VFF status for their equivalent IMO unless you can prove that you will fly their metal immediately and with the frequency required to maintain the equivalent status.
Your best chance is to work out where you fly the most, frequency and then seeing what OW Airline suits your proposed schedule. I've obtained a status match with VFF using this method.
As mentioned earlier, status challange would be your best bet.
Good luck.
