I sent my Velocity Platinum documentation to Qatar on May 19th and await a reply
You're probably right considering they seem to have ended the status match early and then reintroduced it minus VA. They're probably combing through the mass VA applications and they may be down staff because I'm pretty sure the next couple days are religious public holidays in that region.I suspect the volumes of applications from VA refugees must be really high - to give you an idea about 70 staff from my department applied for a match (when it came out it was forwarded around) as a lot of us used to fly VA quite alot. Now our corporate booking tool has blocked VA, so alot of people jumped at it!
Wonder if they might only offer the status match to VFF Platinum members if they need to cap numbers?You're probably right considering they seem to have ended the status match early and then reintroduced it minus VA.

I think this is a good sign that they will match most people. By this stage they know how many people are applying and are still keeping it going. They are really just looking for ways to keep business coming in without cheapening their product, same with their 5000 mile rebooking policy, they don't mind people taking advantage of it, as long as you're spending money with themQatar Airways extends the deadline for its Privilege Club status match for Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Etihad, South African Airways and Turkish elites.
This is the second time the application deadline has been extended.
But not for Velocity members.
