Status match from AerClub to other FPPs

Does anyone know any airlines that currently match with AerLingus AerClub?

Judging by the statusmatcher site, there doesn't appear to be any successful examples of people getting a match.

Aerclub were excluded from the BA match recently which is a pity.

A coworker got matched by Delta (platinum to platinum) via corporate status matcher offer for a single delta flight!

EI did offer former BMI a deal when BA took them over, but I've never seen anyone offer EI to something else

Any deal I've been offered via corporate is either we all get base status for free or a challenge to get a certain number of points/miles in a short period. Neither work as I live in the world of Y only travel

Given that to achieve status in AerClub you currently have to fly exclusively on Aer Lingus - meaning that you are almost always flying to/from Ireland - there are not many airlines for whom Aer Lingus' frequent flyers might represent a lucrative market.

True, the US/Canadian carriers serving Dublin have a certain degree of overlap on EI's transatlantic routes; and Ryanair has a greater degree of overlap on EI's European routes; but I'm not sure the US/Canadian carriers are particularly interested in tempting EI flyers over by means of a status match.

And rather than a frequent flyer programme, Ryanair uses cheapers fares to tempt EI flyers over!

You might still be able to pay for an AA status challenge.

If you are flying trans Atlantic, then there may be options with the US carriers.

AA have a sort of fast track where you get status for a limited time and need to hit certain thresholds to extend it, some details here - https://onemileatatime.com/guides/am...tus-challenge/
DL, while they do not list EI as a official match target do consider applications - https://onemileatatime.com/guides/delta-status-match/

After looking more into it I decided not to bother as I would not get my monies worth.
