Hainan / Hong Kong Airlines Fortune Wings Elite Status Match challenge (Alaska Airlines flights included)

Hainan Airlines and Hong Kong Airlines Fortune Wings has jumped on the elite status match bandwagon but they aren't just handing out status. You will need to complete flights on Hainan Airlines (or any of their subsidiary airlines) or even Alaska Airlines to earn status faster than if you don't take part in the challenge. What is interesting, is that you may not have to hold status with another airline but hold 'status' with a credit card. How that works exactly is unknown, if you have a Platinum, Infinite, World Elite, Signature credit card does that mean your eligible? Or does it mean airline status you've earned via a credit card? The terms don't clarify this. The Alaska Airlines component is awesome which means you don't even have to set foot in China, you could funnel your Alaska Airlines flights to Fortune Wings for this challenge.

Anyways you'll need to email Fortune Wings stating you want to do the challenge and tell them what level you want to achieve:
As you can see you'll have a little over 3 months from the day you want to start the challenge (you can specify the date) to complete the flight requirements. To compare, without the challenge you would need 50,000 points or 40 qualifying flight sectors for Gold or 30,000 points or 20 qualifying flight sectors for silver.
