Status Point Boost...

  • As an Airpoints Elite member you'll earn 30 bonus Status Points for every 10 Status Boost Journeys completed
  1. What is a status boost journey ?
  2. Is a one sector journey a status boost journey or does it need to include the return ?
  3. would a return London journey from say Wellington be 6 or one status boost journey
  4. do the status boost SP count towards the 820 airnz earnt points or others

Asked them on Twitter yesterday and the it is going to count as AirNZ SPs not "Other".

1-3 Each line item in your SP statement apparently counts as a journey.

Air NZ don't define a journey in the T&C and aren't willing to define it in any detail when asked either, other than inferring each individual flight is a journey.

The problem is this isn't how a journey is defined in back end systems at present.

Watching this closely. 152 flights on air nz for my elite year just rolled. This year it’s likely to be 230 flights. Looking forward to those 690 boost SPs

Frequent Flyer Status Boost terms and conditions

  1. Members who hold Gold or Elite Membership Tier Status will be awarded bonus Status Points when they take 10 Status Point earning Journeys on Air New Zealand Flights or Qualifying Partner Airline Flights ("Status Boost Journeys") between either:
    1. 1 August 2019, and the Member's next tier status review date or tier status upgrade (whichever occurs first); or
    2. the Member's most recent tier status review date (provided that date is after 1 August 2019), and their next tier status review date or tier status upgrade (whichever occurs first), ("Frequent Flyer Status Boost")
  2. Where a Member qualifies for the Frequent Flyer Status Boost, Air New Zealand will use its reasonable endeavours to credit the relevant Status Points to the Member's Account on the day that the 10th Status Boost Journey is completed.
  3. Where a Member upgrades from Gold to Elite Membership Tier Status, and at the date of upgrade has completed between 1 and 9 (inclusive) Status Boost Journeys within the timeframe required by clause 1 above, the Member shall be entitled to a pro rata Frequent Flyer Status Boost based on each Status Boost Journey taken within the required timeframe. For example, if at the time of upgrading from Gold to Elite Membership Tier Status, the Member has taken seven (7) Status Boost Journeys within the timeframe set out in clause 1 above, the Member shall be awarded 7/10ths of the Status Points which would have been awarded if the Member had fully qualified for the Frequent Flyer Status Boost. Members shall not be entitled to any pro rata Frequent Flyer Status Boost in any circumstances other than as set out in this clause 3.
  4. The count of Status Boost Journeys completed by a Member for the purposes of the Frequent Flyer Status Boost will be reset to zero on the date that a Member's new tier status year begins, or the date which an Airpoints™ Gold Member earns enough Status Points to upgrade to Elite Membership Tier Status (if applicable), whichever occurs first.
  5. For more information regarding the Frequent Flyer Status Boost, including the number of Status Points which will be awarded for Members who qualify for a Frequent Flyer Status Boost, visit Frequent Flyer Status Boost. Air New Zealand may make changes to any of the terms and conditions that apply to the Frequent Flyer Status Boost (including the numbers of Status Points to be awarded when a Member qualifies for a Frequent Flyer Status Boost) at any time, at its absolute discretion.
  6. Provided all conditions of the Frequent Flyer Status Boost are met, there is no limit on the number of Status Points that may be earned in accordance with the Frequent Flyer Status Boost.
  7. Air New Zealand may, at any time, in its absolute discretion, elect not to award a Frequent Flyer Status Boost.
  8. Airpoints Terms and Conditions shall apply to the Frequent Flyer Status Boost, and any Capitalised terms not defined in this Agreement shall have the meaning as set out in the Airpoints Terms and Conditions.

In that case, WLG-LHR return would count as 4 journeys (not 6), even if you fly NZ6>NZ2 and NZ1>NZ5 as I did a couple of weeks ago...


Status Points WLG-LHR return

I wonder how they will be counted? As part of 60% on air nz flights or same as credit card spend SP of which I max in 6 months so might be of no use to some.
