Status extension

My status was due to expire on July 31st 2020 and I now see it is extended to July 31st 2021. I am still missing a significant amount of points.
Was there any official communication on this? I just remember a communication about a 6 month extension.

I just went online to look at my status. Yup, instead of 30/9/2020, it’s 30/9/2021. I guess they just did it!- figured they’d get no complaints. I wonder what will happen to those who manage to go up a level due to the extra time- will that be honored too.,

Interesting because the reports were they were extending for 6 months not 12.

This is ElAl we're talking about. They are not very good with PR or communication...

Lol! They did send emails about the 6 months extension so one would think that they would do it for 12 months too. But to be fair now that I think about it most of their employees are on leave

Does anyone know what will happen to Matmid points older than 3 years that normally get deleted? Will Elal add in 4-6 months before deleting them?

Good point. So far they haven't announced any change in policy in that respect.

I received an email today that the old points about to expire were being extended by 6 months.

They also zeroed out all previously earned points. So you have to start flying sooner than later to regain status.
