Anyway, I got the challenge from American Airlines and the Topbonus Gold->status match with S7.
However, for S7 you need a flight with them. Did you fly with them already?

Oman Air seems to match most programs. Was matched from Aegean Gold to Oman Air Sinbad Gold within a few days.

Anyone with some luck with Iberia match so far? I sent in a request a month ago, then received an acknowledgement email that they are busy. But nothing after that.

Anybody has any experience of an Egyptair status match? I couldn't find much information about it.

I don't think EgyptAir has ever had an official or unofficial match.

A colleague of mine granted the status match from Etihad Gold to one of his airline partner, Asiana (StarAlliance Gold). I've tried to contact them at their customer service in Seoul and they denied my request.
Anyone have a better way to contact the Asiana FF program?

I have just received a TopBonus Gold card

I submitted the match shortly before the bankruptcy.

Is there anything useful that I can do with it? BA surely won't accept it for any purpose any longer? Any Sapphire OW matches from it still?

Good thing I speak German

I'll give this a try, would really like OWS status as I fly BA more frequently than I'd like.

Any idea how long will the IB matched status be valid for?

AA will grant you a status challenge, and you will receive complimentary status for 3 months while completing the challenge.

Have EK gold and a trial of TK gold. Looking to match into a one world program. With Air Berlin gone, what other options are out there? Will likely be flying some AA and BA in the next few months, US citizen residing in Nairobi.

Did IB send any email confirmation about the match before you received the cards?
