One Mile at a Time had an article over the weekend discussing a Virgin Atlantic status match.


The article says the match is limited to American Airlines, British Airways, Emirates, United, South African, Cathay and Etihad. However, the page on the Virgin website includes a number of other carriers, including Qantas and Virgin Australia.

The small catch is you need to have a booking with VS.

I booked a fully refundable ticket and submitted a request.

My application was matched a little more than 48 hours after I submitted it.

However, the text of the email (which struck me as not being a form email), said the status would only be upgraded "just before your next flight with us". That flight isn't until mid-year. It's also contrary to the terms you have to agree to which require the user to agree that "I understand that if I qualify, my status match will be applied within 30 days."
