Status extension and bonuses promo has been quietly amended today.
Requirement for extension is now only to book an eligible flight by 28 March (or 30 May? - blurb and T&Cs differ, who knows which is correct) for travel by 22 Feb 2022.
12 Month Status extension
Simply book 1 eligible flight* by 30 May 2021.
Your Status locked in until 31 March 2022. Exclusions apply. See Terms and Conditions.
“We had previously rewarded existing eligible Gold and Platinum Velocity members (you) with a Status extension, Points bonus and Gold and Platinum benefits (Status Rewards) in accordance with these offer Terms. We have now provided you with more possibilities to access these Status Rewards, by only requiring you to book an Eligible Flight by 28 March 2021 to be able to access the Status extension, and by extending the eligibility date for the Points bonus and the Gold and Platinum benefits to 30 May 2021.”
Unsurprising that they’ve extended the dates. I reckon there’s still a good chance they’ll automatically extend everyone’s status anyway, even though this promotion is then somewhat undermined.
