SAS | EuroBonus Lifetime Gold (EBG - LTG) [Experiences and Discussions]

This is a merged thread specifically about the EuroBonus Lifetime Gold (LTG) status level, essentially EuroBonus Gold status for life (yours or the one of SAS is anyone's guess).

For discussions and experience reports about EuroBonus Gold status use the dedicated EBG thread: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/sas-...-new-post.html

Yep, the norwegian article said "i sammenhengende" which means coherent and continuous.

It would be great to know if a Gold year counts when you have a soft landing from Diamond.

It's said that SAS will have a press release in a few weeks. Hope they will clear that then.

Lets hope they clarify it soon.

It would make sense that it does since you are essentially doing twice the flying to get to EBD but then again but clear rules would make it simpler

E-mail from Member Service 6 April 2017:
...du har vret Guld medlem 9 gange s en gang til s er du Life Timer Gold medlem [you have qualified for gold 9 times so one more and you will become LTG member]

1 May 2017: I qualify for gold for the 10th consecutive time.

E-mail from Member Service 1 May 2017:
Vores nye system med at man kan blive Life Time Gold med 10 guldperioder selvom man er under 60 r vil trde i kraft i lbet af ret. Du vil f besked herom nr det sker. [The new system with LTG after qualifying for gold 10 times for members below 60 years will be introduced later this year. You will be notified when it happens]

Since then, it only went downhill with Member Service backtracking on every promise made and in the end not even being able to confirm that LTG would be introduced at all (in 2018 or later)

I have just emailed them to confirm I will be prioritized to receive the LTG card given I was promised one nearly 1 year ago.

Less than week ago I booked a ML with TK in business to CGK end March just to be sure I will retain my gold status (earning period ends 31 April) in case the LTG was going to be introduced. Against all odds though - my confidence in Eurobonus and their Communication Strategy is below zero.

I am also worried, as If someone starts with gold this year 2018, and we don't know if SAS can hold it until 2028 without bankrupting or being sold to Lufthansa.

Formally to be launched in autumn.... heard that before... a couple of times...

Anyway, does 5 x EBD also count? Not sure I want to hang around Europe for 4 more years

I am sure 5*EBD counts as 5 years of the requirement.

But as SK gold is super easy to earn with long haul flying, and there is no minimum SK flight required keeping SK Gold in other regions is not that much of a challenge. I keep it with the few random flights that I can't cover by oneworld.

Is there any way to check how many consecutive years a person already has? I am on 6 or 7, but honestly cannot remember my first year as Gold.
