Etihad Airways Status Match - Receive Guest Gold Status if you hold Gold Status with another airline (apply by Mar 15, 15)

UPDATE: This offer is only applicable to individuals based in UAE, UK, USA, Australia, Saudi Arabia, France, Switzerland, China and Japan.

Just came across this offer on Etihad's site! They are running a new Status Match offer similar to the one we saw early in 2014. It doesn't look like it is a simple status match based on the terms such as only a limited amount of Gold Cards will be issued and they reserve the right to select who gets them. Based upon having to supply mileage statements I'm guessing that if you hold status in an airline but don't fly with them (think of the old Cathay Pacific Marco Polo status provided with select Amex Platinum cards) or only earn miles through credit card spend (think select U.S. credit cards that offer status) they will more than likely not status match you. Find all the details of this offer here

Here is how to go about applying for a status match (You have to apply by March 15, 15)

  • Existing Etihad Guest members: Send us a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, copy of your latest miles statement along with your Etihad Guest membership number to
