A few months ago my brother attempted to match AA Gold to Hawaiian. He was asked to show his AA statements showing how much he'd flown as well as proof of HA bookings. He had one paid J Hawaiian booking but they determined it wasn't enough, nor had he flown enough this year with AA, and they denied him.

My partner got a status match to Singapore Air Gold status last week using his BA gold and Turkish Airlines Elite plus status. Contacted thru their website and was asked to submit 6 requirements including travel history, flight statement, if one has corporate account and future trips with SQ with booking number. It was perfect since he was flying on SilkAir/SQ from Cebu to Melbourne in economy class and was able to use the Plaza Premium Lounge in Cebu. No upgrade as the cabin was full even in business class but was able to choose seat with more legroom

SQ matching status?

That's a first.

Could you provide instructions and contacts on how to request it? Thanks in advance.

Hi miamiflyer8,
I first saw a report of a status match from TK elite plus to SQ gold a few months ago on statusmatcher.com. Waited till my partner gets his BA gold status in the middle of October as there was not much activity on his TK account. Sent both pictures of BA Gold and TK Elite Plus cards to SQ website "Contact Us" using the UK website. Got a reply from them the following day asking for infos like account statement, travel history, future SQ flights with PNR, if working in a company and position. They said they will get back to us for the result of the request and it is not guarranteed that my partner will get the Gold status. After 2-3 days, got a reply stating he got the Gold status. Goodluck

Thanks!
BA does not status match. In recent years it has only ever extended status to members of airlines it has acquired (e.g. BMI in 2012). However, if you know how the system works itís not that difficult to qualify as of right.

This is consistent with the way BA operates its whole business, in common with a lot of European airlines - essentially if you want something you have to pay for it!
