Star Alliance status match from BA Gold/GGL

Anyone had any joy recently matching from BA Gold/GGL to a Star Alliance member airline? I have matched with UA within the past 5 years so they won't repeat the deal unfortunately.

This thread was originally posted on BA forum, however, because it is more about Star Alliance than BA, it has been moved to this forum section.

Actually I wanted to hear the experience of other users of the BA Forum in getting status matches on Star Alliance so I would question the need to move the thread?

SQ matched me a few weeks ago as GGL - but I do have quite a lot of Asia travel booked (albeit none currently with SQ).

Thanks. Do you have the email address you wrote to as I can't seem to find a suitable one?

Typically TK is the go to for *A, but I do believe they require some segments on TK metal these days for the match to stick after a trial period. There is a long running thread in the TK forum for it:
TK status match (2017 onwards)

I did it by phone, as was previously Gold, then dropped to Silver, was given Silver for another year, and this year called up and asked to be made Gold again.

It was surprisingly easy.
