I'm guessing 3ish days should be typical for it to be recognised in the app if everything goes smoothly?

I understand getting the physical card is a completely different story! But shouldn't be a problem until I get back to apply at the local office in SYD.
I flew on UA to Tokyo last month and OZ had it credited in 3 days from take off.

I'm wondering about the limits of the CC miles not just for bi-annual status but also lifetime. I am hesitant to ask in public, in case the answer is yes, but I'm pretty sure you can guess what I'm asking. OZ's site isn't clear; anybody have a definitive answer?

They donít count towards lifetime status.

That was my assumption too, but if they had been I didn't want the whole world to kill that in about 2 weeks. Thanks!

Is there an actual DP (data point) for this? Thanks!

I have earned lots of miles on the Asiana credit card since they started counting for the status renewal and confirm that they do not count towards lifetime miles.

Depends. If you have a longhaul trip you were going to take anyway, paying extra to earn more miles or taking the scenic route (e.g. invest your time) might be worth the benefits. I'm thinking about flying AU-US via Asia over the Christmas holidays even though nonstop on United isn't much more expensive. Earns 20,000 miles in one trip easily instead of 7,500 on United and its pathetic 50% earn rate.

Just want to confirm that you have the Bank of America Asiana card?

Slightly off-topic: I'm really glad I'm solidly in status with OZ and not UA now. There's no way I'd hit *G with 10,000 "points" on OZ fares, even flying back to the US 6 times a year on a mix of V and S fares. Well, I guess I could manufacture it with 6 flights; with 5 I'd be dead in the water.

The 2 year window and relaxed requirements look really good today.

For sure! I'm so glad I made the decision to go with OZ instead of UA. At the time I was making my decision, I thought UA wasn't going to be that hard with my flying pattern plus there's the benefit of status covering domestic flights while with OZ, it's not likely I'll gain much. With today's announcement, I'm so happy I went with OZ. Contrary to UA's assertion, I think their ranks of elites will thin out. There's no way the vast majority of leisure travellers will meet the requirements.

I am not sure if there is a reason to be glad. The question is who will buy Asiana , and whether Asiana will remain in the Star Alliance.
