Status Matching

Anyone aware of any status matching opportunities available to AerClub members with other airlines?

Aer Lingus do not publicly status match.

Last and (only?) time was when BMI was sold and Diamond Club members were offered Gold Circle status as an incentive to get them to fly with EI and not BA

Tried to match EI Plat to AA last year and was offered a paid status challenge where you have three months to complete a certain number of miles/qualifying dollars in order to earn status for the year, it's essentially a paid shortcut. That's about the best you'll do, nobody will directly match to EI.

The only time EI will match and vv is where a lot of guranteed revenue is being promised. For example a big corporate account especially the big US ones who have bases in Ireland. Then an account manager negotiates with the company concerned and they often supply status matches to clinch the deal.

Agree. I got status matched from EI Concierge to AA Platinum via our account manager.
