Gold is only SkyTeam Elite but without a challenge.

The question is to which level they're matching. Garuda Gold equals ST E which is, basically, worthless. Wake me up when they have reasonable requirements for a match to Platinum (= ST E+).

Why don't you go ask and report back.

So was it a challenge that you completed or straight up match? Might they match UA 1K to E+?

DL online only shows me a status challenge page. How did you do the straight up match?

...unless I missed the point- you are talking about a Garuda match, eh?

Yes, a Garuda match. I will have to check my emails and get back to you but I did mine nearly 12 months ago.

Looking back on my emails, I simply emailed gff @ garuda-indonesia.com and enquired about a status match, outlining the statuses that I had. The response was for me to provide a copy of my current FF membership and Garuda FF details, as well as a completed form called Tier Matching Form. That was it.

Hello. I got a UNITED 1K STATUS as a gift and wanted to do a status match with BA or IB, has anyone done it recently? It doesn't seem to be working now.
Thanks!

Ditto here. I have Delta Gold, obtained via a promotion in 2018. Are there any airlines that would match it? If I sent them a statement, it would simply show that I was gold in 2018 as well, and didn't requalify in 2019 for 2020.
