Air China Lifetime Platinum Status

Maybe you have been contemplating to use the CA program to attain lifetime *G membership.
CA has just updated their FFP site and are now saying that in order to qualify for lifetime Platinum you need to fly 1MM km on CA operated or code shared flights.

Star Alliance flight count towards your normal yearly status but not towards lifetime status.

So similar to United and therefore not a viable option when you do not live in China.

It seems they've revised the requirements over time too:
Added Premium Lifetime Platinum card
Dear Lifetime Platinum Members,
As of January 1st, 2019, PhoenixMiles will be adjusting a few benefits offered to Lifetime Platinum members. If you have accrued 300.000 miles or more in 2018, you will become a Premium Lifetime Platinum member in 2019, and your tier status will be expired on December 31st of the same year after your tier has been upgraded. During the period, you will be offered 6 special services listed below:
*You obtain one upgrade voucher, which can be used to upgrade a chosen Silver or Standard card to Gold.
*You obtain two International cabin upgrade vouchers, which can be used to upgrade a chosen ticket to First Class. Using cabin upgrade vouchers is limited to the Platinum Card holder.
*Before December 31st 2019, when you buy a ticket, you can have two opportunities to upgrade to Domestic First Class. (excluding routes to Sanya)
*If your account have mileages that expired at the end of last month, you can request to extend to the end of the 12th month from this month.
*When you request a personal award ticket or cabin upgrade etc., you are exempt from the ticket change fee.

What they did is they have actually just added a special tier "above" Lifetime Platinum for those who go on flying a lot despite having already achieved Lifetime Platinum.
Those people will get additional benefits over those who "just hold" Lifetime Platinum status and reduce flying Air China afterwards.
It is quite a good idea in my opinion.
