I admit to being thoroughly confused.You’re confusing your status years here. My year ends Apr, and not that long ago was ‘gifted’ the status April just gone to Apr 2021. A nonsense gift for someone whose status year was almost over, as like a lot of others I had already requalified.
The StatusKeeper credits recognise this and get me a long way toward requalifying for Apr 21-Mar 22. However I still have to do the four flights by Apr 21, a bloody big hurdle as the bulk of my QF flights previously have been international for work, or rellie runs BNE-SYD. Both currently off the table. Probably have to do status runs, assuming I decide WP status is still worth having.
Because I usually have enough flights every year, I haven’t had to think about it for a while. I thought you just had to make the qualifying flights before (in your case) March 2022. Now I understand they have to be by end of March next year to launch your renewal. Thank goodness I can wait until late next year! PER-MEL via ADL provides four segments on a return trip or else, EK booked through QF in September.
