Upon speaking to VA, I have status extension until Feb 2023.

Now, they tell me my 12 month status cycle happens on the day I reach my 800 status points for VA plat. Is this right?


So, if I attained my 800 status points and sector eligibility by Feb 2022, I will have VA Plat until feb 2023 (which defeats the purpose since I already have status extension)?

That is as expected.

FWIW, most status extension beneficiaries have had their status extended currently until end March 2022 with a further status extension to be applied during the first ¼ next year to end Feb 2023. See here:
So back to your original question:

It would seem you will have status until end Feb 2023 no matter what you do.

Only SC earned from March 1st 2022 will count toward extension beyond Feb 2023.

So my expiry is end of January 2022 and I don't see getting any extension for me - does that sound right.

Astro, your Status has been extended until 2023

As we look towards more borders opening, we are excited to let you know we have further extended your Platinum Status membership until 28 February 2023*.

This means that even if you haven't flown recently you'll continue to enjoy your Platinum benefits including complimentary upgrades and Fly Ahead~.

Your current Status extension will continue to show in your My Velocity account and Velocity App with a review date of 31 March 2022. On 1 March 2022, we’ll apply another 12 month extension to your account so that your new review date will be 28 February 2023.

There’s no need to do anything and we’ll let you know by email once this has been done.

This was sent in September. I am in the same boat. I'll hit 800 by Christmas. Unfortunate that I already have the extension.

The open-ended double status credits coupled with the world going back to normal and plenty of catch up travel has made earning big numbers each month very easy.

Perhaps they'll give us another extension to 2024? ... tell him he's dreaming!

Thank you everyone for your replies.

I just wanted to check the second part of the question. Normally, the 12 months status cycle restarts when you reach that 800 status points for plat?

When you reach Platinum, you will not be reassessed again until the 12 month period comes up. It doesn't matter when you reach 800 during that 12 month period.

Has anyone who has an expiry date of January 31st 2022 seen any extensions. I flew one Virgin flight in the year but that's it - it seems they are giving extensions to other months
