Miles for A3*G requalification

Hi,

The A3 website states that:
"To retain your Gold Tier, you have a fixed 12-month period from the date of your upgrade or renewal of your tier to collect 12,000 Tier Miles, including 4 flights with Aegean and/or Olympic Air, or collect a total of 24,000 Tier Miles, regardless of which airline you choose to fly with."

So with the 12K miles option - do they all need to be on A3/OA or is it required only to have 4 sectors on A3/OA and the remaining tier miles (up to 12K) can be accrued with any *A members?. For example, will this allow gold requalification:
4 flights on A3 @ 3200 tier miles + 8800 tier miles on other *A members

Cheers

Yes.

The options are: 4 flights with OA/A3 + 12k miles on any *A metal or 24k miles on any *A metal (4 OA/A3 flights not required)

Thanks all for the replies, it's all clear now.

@Tokyoite: not really 1st time gold. have been A3*G for over 6 years now but have always accrued sufficient miles to requalify without too much worry regarding the 12k/24k thresholds. This year my flight schedule has changed (fewer intra-EU, more long hauls) hence my question.
