Exclamation Flying blue status question

Hi,

I reached the Silver status last September 2018.

My AF app is showing me two things and I need help to understand;
- I need 100XP to keep the Silver
- I need 180 XP to be Gold

What does it mean?
I need 100XP to keep then 80XP to be Gold or I need 280 to be Gold and keep the Silver?

Thanks.

Option 1!
You are now Silver for a period of 12+3 months starting Sept 18.

Less than 100 XP in the first 12 months, and you lose your status after the 15 month period (there are three months 'grace period' if you don't requalify).

Reach 100 XP anytime in the 12 first months (without going to 180) and you'll keep Silver for another 12+3 months (until Sept 20, +3 if you don't requalify).

Reach 180 XP, and you are converted to Gold immediately. This starts a new 12+3 period, for instance your new qualification period starts in June 19 (the September date doesn't matter anymore). Then you have a year to reach 180 again.

See some examples here.

There is also one more case

Between 101XP and 179XP = you will be deducted of 100XP, will be silver for one more year and the leftover will be kept for the next year

So you need to plan everything correctly , if possible of course

it can be worthy to do extra steps if , before the end of your 12 months period as silver , you get close to 180XP , so you can reach gold

On the other hand , if silver is enough and you go over 100XP just a bit , then these xp left will count for your next 12 months period

Hi there, I'm gonna reach Silver in 10 days and something is still not clear to me.
My qualification period will start in May 2019.
What happens if I don't reach 100 XP in the following 12 months? Say I end the qualification period at 70 XP on 30 April 2020. Is my XP counter reset to zero on May 1st? Or are these 70 XP carried over for an additional 12 months? (I suspect the former, since the latter seems too easy...)

Counter is reset to zero unfortunately.
