By the way, did you get any email confirmation about the status upgrade or directly letter/card by post?
Email came same day as approved the app/web was updated. No cards yet. Very efficient so I am pleased with the process even though I was not personally matched since I am allready ba Gold.

Many successful matches have been reported. I know of three personally! Latest report I heard was they were estimating dec 10 deadline to get matches done. They must be swamped

Would love to know for sure IBís methodology for processing these. Seems like some got their match in a matter of days (even when submitting a week or so after the offer was live), while some who submitted the very first day of the offer are still waiting. kauppias, your alphabetical order theory seems plausible, but seems they should be well through letters now based on evidence...perhaps they just took a break from processing these for the moment, or just that many more came through recently. All we can do is wait. Fingers crossed for sooner rather than later as I have more flights I need to book soon.

I think they started off on a alphabetical process and have now moved to anothernprocess for new applications or they just got slammed with new applications?

Yeah, who knows. Guess all we can do is speculate on the process. Thanks for your insights/experiences though kauppias, very helpful on this rather opaque offer.

Happy to help I remember the AZ match that seemed to take ages back in the day and that was very frustrsting. But lets still remember this IB offer is very generous as it is a straight match not a fast track and also for over a year 👍 Platinums dont get OWE but other then that very nice offer even if it may takeawhile to process

Oh yes, the offer itself is very generous and straight forward for sure, sorry did not mean the offer itself, rather the process of it is somewhat unclear. Just would like to know so I can plan my loyalty accrual strategy for the next year (since AB is now gone and so is my status I maintained for a few years) and whom I should be flying. All in all, just first world problems I guess.

Aware in what way?

My wife applied for it. They replied in 8 hours that the status will change as soon as she take a flight on S7.

Pretty straight forward if you can easily fly on them.

Me too, still waiting a reply from Iberia, anything good since 3 weeks.
Anyway, I got the challenge from American Airlines and the Topbonus Gold->status match with S7.
