After some email exchanges with gold support iíve been told I will. However iíve have not received anything in the mail, so who knows.

i guess I will find out when they do the official roll out.

Fixed that for you

Was the unofficial line not August? So another loosy stated deadline almost ready to come and go without any action

I think they were more vague than that, right? - I seem to remember that they said they would roll out in autumn or "second half of 2018" or something similarly vague.

They probably were more vague than I remember. Something like "we will roll it out in second half" with no indication as to second half of what....
SKT-DK and Tango Alpha like this.

Something like, second half of 2017+X = roll-out

(and before somebody reminds me that it is now 2018, 2017 was the initial year they claimed to want to launch LTG)

There was the announcement, that hinted at second half 2017, and there was even some info on the website. The info did get removed again though. Then there was a semi announcement spring 2018, which I think was never made by SK directly, but a few select lucky people did receive a letter with the status.

Exactly - makes you wonder if it will ever happen, or it will stay as something unofficial.
I can confirm that a letter did go out to a select few though, myself being one

How did you email? I am Diamond and I don't have even email address of any Diamond support.

Speaking of theme, I rang SAS hotline and it connected me to Estonian call centere where I asked about how many Gold years I have counting for Lifetime. They said I have 7. I asked if those years have to be consecutive years to count for LTG and how many then I would have, and they answered yes it has to be consecutive gold years and I have 7 of those. I know I have about 10 years of being Gold but not consecutive years, and I had a pause some 4-5 years ago so I am 100% sure I don't have 7 consecutive years of Gold. Confusing me and I wonder if I can trust the call center at all. Maybe I have to double check with a Swedish hotline. Go figure.

Well, that makes you still LTG at the age of 60. So no need to credit anything to EB anymore if you can wait.

Wait patience is not my virtue and I want to stay young forever

Well I can probably tweak TK Gold along the way or cherrypick status matches until then

Anyway, I shot an email to SAS Sweden now, wait and see the answer

I have a strong feeling this is dead in the water. And will remain so.

The promise after the initial few was to announce in 2018. I have my doubts that will happen. But let's see....
