Yeah, I know there isn't much to do. And I do know that I should only credit to one airline per alliance (if possible). I do have some SAS flights coming up in the early summer, so I might get EB Silver. And I know that I have at least 4 KL flights from late summer to early summer next year. Which unfortunately passes the end date of this qualifying period. So if I manage to get EB Silver, is there a ST FFP that may match that? Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about the Norwegian flights, but fortunately there are less than two of them per year (normally).

Question to those who have achieved Lifetime Status in ST …
I have just received Plat for Life under the FlyingBlue program, and would like to start accumulating ST mileage under a different program that also offers Lifetime Status eventually.
Which program would you suggest?

I don't see the point of this initiative for another ST program...
What you should do is doing this in OW or *A.
But may be I am missing something ?

Ah, yes sorry.
I'm already onboard OW (via QF) and *A (via OZ). QF both are on target for lifetime, albeit QF not receiving top tier Emerald status.
So, I'm looking for another ST because I do fly ST when it may not be possible to fly OW or *A.

In that case, unless there is another ST carrier you fly a lot where you live, there is no real interest to build a new top status for life in another ST airline. Just pile up miles in FB and use them.
