This is pretty major, because there's literally no interest for me if that's the case I could just barely imagine taking a cheap positioning flight via them if it was a 50 business class.

not yet, but gonna try then.
Having a LUMO tier at the moment, and probably for the future as well - so, most of the flights i collect from OW, but need some back-doors from time to time - though the LUMO for them is not telling too much...

How about getting back doors on *A with TK challenge? If ST is the condition, indirect way might be Delta. Not sure about AY eligibility, though.

TK has worked out so far, yeah.
Delta - then probably should show some US based flights and address... but yeah, also considerable

DL does not match AY from personal experience. They do however match SK. No US residency requirement as far as I know.

TK will give the challenge to all OW Emerald except BA Gold which is due to their incompetence not recognizing the name "Gold" as Emerald.

Having a US address is actually a disadvantage with DL because then you fall into their horrible revenue based status scheme.

Exactly, luckily I have an old document from Maistraatti with my old Finnish address on it I can send to them to get around this requirement. Being ATL based I try to avoid them like the plague. I use mainly AA, UA, WN and B6 which works pretty well. DL tickets are exorbitantly priced ex-ATL due to the cushy relationship between DL and the City of Atlanta.
