ITA is now running a status match promo:


I'm eligible for it via United status, so seriously considering it in case ITA joins SkyTeam or in case something useful comes of it...

Love the new branding and it should resonate with the Italians. Hopefully they can provide a decent service and I will definitely sign up to the status match just in case something good comes of it

I note that Qantas doesn't appear to be on the list so not open to Elite QF Members.

No, it doesn't. But there are a few options that may be accessible to some in Australia. E.g. Qatar, BA, American Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Emirates.

I've applied but haven't yet heard back. (The fine print says the match will be processed by 31 December and that the status will be valid in 2022, so not too concerned.)

Got my status match back within a day!! All in Italian! Used Google translate, I went from Qatar Gold to ITA Volare PREMIUM. I'll post the text - they're saying to use the email for now as proof of status!

After I applied last week, I noticed that they updated their website with an additional requirement to attach an identity document to the email. That wasn't listed as a requirement last week. So I've sent them another email with a copy of my passport. Haven't received a response yet to either email. 🤷‍♂️

Yes, I included a copy of my passport. I had a bit of a look around what there is of their website - it seems to be a work in progress, particularly the frequent flyer bit! Nevertheless it seems they're up and running. Good luck to them.

And after sending another email with a copy of my passport, I received a reply overnight. Status match accepted.

Al Italia staff not offered a job by ITA staged a protest with a difference in Rome.

Pleased to advise that a confirmation email has just been received from ITA on successful matching to Premium membership with my Krisflyer Gold.

Good luck to all fellow AFFers on their application

So finally got around to doing this.
Sent off at 2205 and received confirmation email at 2228, guess they are on the ball over there currently 🤣

I used my QR Platinum status and within a couple of days matched to their executive level. BTW my QR status was also matched from VA. If it was declined, as a fall-back plan I would have had another crack using KF gold status. Not sure if I will need it but at least it gives me a couple of other options.
