New Airpoints Card

Hi everyone, my new card arrived today and did not have my consecutive Elite years on it, is this a change of policy? Iím struggling to remember if the Elite pack has another card in it?

also I noticed that I only have 1 x Valet parking voucher now..is this an enhancement I missed?

I got mine in the mail today too. No number on it like you.
Also didnít get any of the usual vouchers or bag tags which I think they mentioned in an email a while back, but my partner got bag tags in the Elite Partner pack today which I thought was a little weird.

My year doesnít actually roll over until 1 July so my Valet vouchers havenít updated yet.

Has it got something to do with "AirnzHeadstart" h

Are you over 20years of gold or elite ?
maybe it only shows for elite with less than 20years under their belt ?

It shouldn't be related to this because headstart has been deferred (to a date yet to be announced) in light of the status extension provided under Covid-19.

my memory is starting to fail me... must be old age - it was pre-COVID when they announced this - with a brave new world we are in and stepping into, it would make it extremely difficult to retain the status - I guess that they must count if it was shielded by banked years? I vaguely remember they were to come back to us with the magic number that we have been Gold but I guess this got pushed to the very bottom of the list with the many IT related priorities they are trying to deliver - let's not hope that they have got rid of most of their IT staff -

back to head start, I think that I am just on 10 years with a combination of Gold and Elite... hope my calculation will be correct and that they will honor me with 135 points - I really need this for the current year.

Depending on the anniversary, many will end up burning at least 2 banked years.

Recently minted Elites will likely soft land to gold when the free bank year is spent.

There's just not that much SP earned on domestic.
