Unfortunately they do not match Finnair so it's not an option.

Are you sure? Finnair may not be listed, but in the fine print they say they will consider status matches even from airlines not specifically mentioned.
I suggest still emailing them or sending them a Twitter/FB message to see if anything can be done.

I saw that point indeed in the terms, but the rep said they do not match AY.

I've got the status match with Air New Zealand, Gold until April 2019, 2 upgrades in area AUS/NZ for free.
How can I get a status match with SkyTeam?
(I cannot do it with the Delta Challenge).

Anyone have an answer for this? What about OneWorld.

DL is the only ST challenge I have seen lately. One option might be trying to trade a partner card from the coupon connection.

Oneworld challenge is offered by AA for a fee, I havent seen any freebies lately for OW. OW partner cards are also traded in ihe Coupon Connection though

Japan Airlines FLY ON Report: Match | StatusMatcher
From ANA Mileage Club Platinum Service
To Japan Airlines FLY ON JMB Sapphire
Contacted JMB through online message after logging into account. Provided a future JAL business class booking number and a screenshot of ANA card with the message. Got a reply within a few days and asked for future travel plans. Provided the info requested and status was matched 1.5 weeks later.


Is it so easy to get OW Sapphire with JAL?
I knew that ANA and JAL are very demanding in giving away Elite status..

A couple years ago I did a free SM to EVA as a UA 1k. Never flew Eva before (nor since) but it got me into UC for over a year, even domestic. Not sure they are still doing it.

Any reports yet of successful LATAM status matches? as they are apparently accepting them again.

I currently have FB Platinum (SkyTeam Elite+) and am looking for a Star Alliance match, I’ll be flying with ANA next month and Lufthansa in a few months. From browsing and checking stausmatcher.com it looks like my best bet is to ask Turkish Airlines, but also have read conflicting updates on that. Does anybody have any leads? In general, should I ask multiple airlines within an alliance or is that not a good approach?

I recently tried to have my Iberia Oro (OW Sapphire) status matched with Turkish but to no avail. You will likely have more luck because this is what they said:

Miles&Smiles members who also have membership with the Skyteam (Elite Plus), One World (Emerald), Emirates (Gold - Platinum), Etihad (Gold - Platinum), El Al Israil Airlines (Platinum - Top Platinum), Finnair (Plus Gold), Oman Air (Sinbad Gold) are eligible to status match for Elite membership.
mia and FEasy like this.

I am thinking of status matching from AC to DL. I was wondering if anyone knew what supporting documents are needed.

Photo of card (preferably physical), and a statement showing you earn your status by flying vs some promotion. So just a screenshot of your last statement with flights is fine.

DL will give you status for 3 months, but if you meet the status challenge PQM/PQD requirements you'll keep it for the whole year.
