Changes to your Qualification Period

Looks like EI is following BA

Email just landed

​​​​​​​Standardised Qualification Period:
As part of this, all AerClub members will now have the same Qualification Period. Your new Qualification Period start date is 1st April 2024. You'll be able to see this change in your account after 10th April 2024. That means every year your Qualification Period begins anew, and your Tier Credits will reset to zero on the 1st of April.

Tier Status and Tier Benefits Extension:
The good news is that your current Tier status and any remaining applicable Tier benefits will be protected and extended until 31st March 2025. If your current Tier status already exceeds 31st March 2025, it will be extended to 31st March 2026.

Tier Credits Review:
Additionally, we are reviewing any Tier Credits earned between 1st April 2023 and 31st March 2024. Based on this review any related Tier status upgrade will be applied to your account after 10th April 2024. That means you still have time to earn Tier Credits and unlock more benefits! To learn more about this change, check out our FAQs using the link below.

For me this gives me 9 month longer status at my current level, currently my status is expiring on 30 Jun 2025, but now it's 31 March 2026.

Interestingly they've gone down a different path to BA with the transition cutting over to the new collection year next month rather than April 2025, and just given free extensions to March for anyone expiring in a different month.

Spend-based tiers are surely on the way...

Im about 1/3 way through my original membership year and bout 200TPs up. The FAQ seams to say they will all be reverted back to 0. Am I reading that right! bit of a pain that no TP carry over.

The TPs will reset to 0 at the start of April 2024.

However, they will do a tier calculation from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024 and if you're due to go up a tier, you'll go up a tier.

If not, your current tier will be extended to 31 March 2025.

Was just about to ask the same. What does this mean for those going for a higher status this year? They could be well on their way going up to plat/conc under their original qualifying year, if TCs are resetting on April then essentially it's a slap in the face. 1 month is not a lot of time to organise travel for TC runs.

Losing 100 points. But getting four extra months of concierge.

I presume theres still the soft landing if you dont make the same tier next year.

Yes, nothing else is changing apart from the Tier Credit collection year.

It's nice seeing the extensions - wish I was not Green

Would anybody like to suggest a cheap way of finding 224 TCs by end of March?

Is it just me or does this feel like the precursor to merging the EI and BA programmes entirely?

I am also concierge with November year twist and I have 845 TPs earned since Nov. It’s an absolute mess from my perspective as it means later renewal of benefits and all this TP earning accounting for nothing. I wish that they had given decent notice on this.
