Any SAS members made it to Star Alliance Top 1000?

I recently stumbeled upon this thread and was quite surprised as I had never before heard of this Star Alliance Top 1000 thing.
Any Mileage Plus Members made to the Star Alliance Top 1000 Group?

As for as I could tell one needs to fly in more than six Star Alliance carriers and credit those all to the same FFP. As far as I've been told only the following airlines fully participate in it:

Spoiler
Aegan Airlines – Miles+Bonus
Air Canada – Aeroplan
Air China – PhoenixMiles
Air India - Flying Returns
Air New Zealand – Airpoints
ANA – ANA Mileage Club
Asiana Airlines – Asiana Club
Avianca - LifeMiles
CopaAirlines - ConnectMiles
EGYPTAIR - EGYPTAIR Plus
EVA Air – Infinity MileageLands
SAS Scandinavian Airlines – EuroBonus
Singapore Airlines – KrisFlyer
South African Airways – SAA Voyager
TAP Portugal – Victoria
Thai Airways – Royal Orchid Plus
Turkish Airlines – Miles&Smiles
United Airlines – Mileage Plus


As SAS Eurobonus seems to be included in the participants I was wondering if anybody made it into the Star Alliance Top 1000 here and if they would mind sharing their travel habits of the year they qualified in!

As far as others have reported one gets a nice little gift upon (re-)qualification and gets asked to fill out several consumer reviews on flying habits and stuff during the year.
So there is no real benefit, except for that gift and the fact that you were invited into the group in the first place.

I've flown 12 out of this list (and most from the LH group too). Until about a year ago flights were credited to United (recently some went to SAS and Avianca). Def. not invited to any club, though.

Same here (haven't flown 12, though, but definitely more than 6) and have *G status through both SK & UA (flights/points were all going to SK up to roughly a year ago). Not amongst the top-super-duper 1000, though

I got it. Mostly flying SK, but crediting all flights to A3.
So not really what you were asking about.
To be honest, given SKs IT and attitude about customer satisfaction, it would really surprise me if they sent this to anyone.

I know one person who got this from crediting everything to A3, but he hardly flies very much so I'm not quite sure what its based on. I have credited a lot of paid F to both A3 and SK the last year, but those (and European) flights were mostly on LH group, so maybe that's why.

I have spoken to a friend who was part of the team who created this the first year. He has since left the company, so he can't comment on how they do it now.
But he said it used to be the number of segments only, and you need to have flown at least 5 or 6 diferent *A airlines.
The "last" one who still made it into the Top1000 only had 38 segments or so.
