Update summary from nufnuf77:

The status update currently seems to take about 15-20 calendar days. No email is sent immediately upon upgrade, but one may be received later (within a week or so). One has to visit the MilleMiglia site and look at one's card displayed under profile. The upgrades are probably processed externally to Alitalia, as neither Freccia Alata Plus line knew anything about it and one member received and email back from external processing team.

Physical card and upgrade voucher code to give status to someone else - 'Freccia Alata for you' are reported to arrive approx 5-10 days after the upgrade has been processed, depending on your postal address.

The coucher for 'Freccia Alata forYou' arrives in the welcome pack and has instructions and rules on how you can use this unique code to upgrade a family member/friend to Freccia Alata status for free. Can only be used once and the person receiving cannot be changed after it is applied.

The 'Business for you' upgrade (4x) is available from the moment one's status shows as Freccia Alata Plus. These 4 upgrade vouchers can be used for oneself or any other nominated person, and can be used by phoning the call centre. To upgrade, the original flight must be booked in P(Classica Plus) or Y, B, M and H(Classica). Upgrade inventory needed seems to be 'Z' class for business and 'A' class for Classica Plus.
It costs: 1 voucher to upgrade P-->Z(Business);
1 voucher for Y/B/M/H-->A(Classica Plus);
2 vouchers to upgrade Y/B/H/M-->Z(Business).


The new expiry date (March 2016 or 2017) will depend on your current status/card submitted, as per this quote from Alitalia:
The new, recognized status will be valid until March 31, 2016. If the status in the existing Frequent Flyer Program expires after March 31, 2016, the equivalent status recognized within the MilleMiglia Program will be valid until March 31, 2017. In no case will lifetime cards be issued.
Matching tiers
Silver level - Ulisse Club
Gold level - Freccia Alata Club <-- Star Alliance Gold
Platinum level - Freccia Alata Plus Club <-- OW Emerald or AA EXP (?)

I probably would be matched by now if I hadn't made a mistake on the email I sent on 16th July (missed a digit of my milemiglia number). Received an email on Friday to inform me they couldnt match my number up so I'm probably bottom of the queue again!

Just a by the way - Gulf Air is GF. In your profile, it says GA Gold (GA being Garuda Indonesia).

How do you say this??
Not sure how to transcribe it for you, but you can always just plug it into translate.google.com and push the little speaker icon to get an idea of the sound.

If you do that...be sure to set the language to "Italian"!!!

Japanese is my favourite (so far!)

Sorry if this has been asked before but what kind of match would one get for sending a TK Elite Gold Card? Alta or Alta Plus?

This should match to "Alata" - if you were TK Elite Plus this could get you "Alata Plus".

One month out - no response

I sent my email on July 4 with a scan of the card showing AA status (EXP). No response so far. I did send a reminder about two weeks ago but that elicited no response either. Not sure if I should simply wait or send a fresh request. I do not want to bombard them with multiple requests but I think something is not quite right. I did recheck my email to make sure that the details were right and my card scan had no issues. Anybody else here who has waited for so long without a response?
