Star Alliance member ANA Mileage Club has a rare status match offer to make competitor program members elites through March 31, 2023. They are specifically targeting American, Delta, and Japan Airlines members but they’ll consider elites from other programs, too, but elites with Star Alliance member programs like United and Air Canada are excluded.
This will be useful for many members because mid-tier status with ANA is Star Alliance Gold status, and that comes with lounge access when flying Star Alliance airlines – even when flying United Airlines domestically. Put another way, it’s akin to a free United Club membership.
Delta SkyMiles Gold and American AAdvantage Platinum (the second tier of each program) match to ANA Mileage Club Platinum.
|American Airlines||Delta Air Lines||Japan Airlines||Matched with AMC|
|Platinum Pro / Executive Platinum||Platinum / Diamond||Diamond / Premier||Platinum|
- Open to residents of North America (United States of the Americas, Mexico, or Canada; residents of Quebec Canada excluded).
- Will match against 2021 or 2022 status (so if an AAdvantage member didn’t keep their status in 2022, they can still be mached)
- They won’t communicate the result of the match, you’ll just see your status upgraded in your account.
- The status match offer is set to run through September 28, 2022, but could be pulled earlier.
