Rare Status Match Offer From oneworld Airline, Get American Flagship Lounge Access Free!

StatusMatch.com is running a status promotion with oneworld airline Royal Air Maroc to give elite status to frequent flyers in most competitor programs across North America and Europe.

The match costs 49 Euros. Matched status lasts through March 31, 2023. And the offer will be available until May 31, 2022 – but could be pulled earlier.

They will match against myriad programs that are not part of oneworld:

  • Star Alliance: Aegean Airlines – Miles+Bonus; Air Canada – Aeroplan; Egyptair – Plus; Ethiopian Airlines – ShebaMiles; Lufthansa – Miles & More; Scandinavian Airlines – EuroBonus; South African Airways – SAA Voyager; TAP Air Portugal – Miles&Go; Turkish Airlines – Miles&Smiles; United Airlines – MileagePlus

  • SkyTeam: Air Europa – SUMA; Air France – Flying Blue; Czech Airlines – OK Plus; Delta Air Lines – SkyMiles; KLM – Flying Blue; Kenya Airways – Flying Blue; Middle East Airlines – Cedar Miles; Saudia – Alfursan

  • Non-alliance: El Al – Matmid; Emirates – Skyward; Etihad – Guest; Gulf Air – Falconflyer; JetBlue – TrueBlue Rewards; LATAM – LATAM Pass; Oman Air – Sinbad; Tunisar – Fidelys; Virgin Atlantic – Flying Club; WestJet – Westjet Rewards

If you’re an American AAdvantage, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, British Airways Executive Club elite or similar oneworld elite member not to worry! ITA Airways, the new Alitalia, is matching anyone with a pulse so do that first. Or do a Delta match to a tier status higher than what you already have if your email address is targeted by American Express for this.

They will match status like-to-like to either their Silver or Gold (but not Platinum) tier. Gold is oneworld Sapphire which gets you: priority check-in; priority boarding; extra baggage allowance; business class lounge access.

American Airlines Flagship Lounge New York JFK

The best benefit here is lounge access. oneworld sapphire members of frequent flyer programs other than American AAdvantage and Alaska’s Mileage Plan get access not just to American Airlines Admirals Clubs and Alaska Lounges but also to American Airlines Flagship lounges even when traveling domestically. That means nice bar setups and buffets at New York JFK, Miami, Dallas, Los Angeles and in a few weeks once again at Chicago O’Hare.

I plan to match to become a Royal Air Maroc Safar Flyer Gold member. This offer may be of interest to you, too.

  1. The problem is when selecting America and United States. It works fine with other countries.

  2. Select American nationality & UK as your country and it will work. After you get your account, you can then change your country address as USA.

    This could be due to them wanting a PO Box # for US & Canada for some reason, but not requesting it on the signup form. When you do it on your account profile, you’re required to enter a PO Box #.

  3. Thanks @DealRaider – I used Guam and it worked. And like you, I changed my account immediately following sign up to say American and US. Terrible website!!

  4. It’s worthwhile to point out that lounge access is only while traveling on a oneworld airline flight.

  5. I got a safar number after about 100 tries. Now to see if this works. I consider the $50 break even after two lounge entries.

  6. Thanks so much for the help guiding through the nationality/country quirks of the website – just had success! Now am I being greedy to wonder if my Safar Gold status will do anything towards possible upgrades or at least seat assignment benefits when flying Alaska or AA?

  7. If you already submitted the request to match, i wonder if they will honor the gold. Otherwise its dumb to buy Silver for $56.

  8. I tried to get status match with ITA but they require a photo of the front and back of your Aadvantage card. There are no more physical cards. I sent in a PDF of my digital card but they won’t accept that. Seems archaic.
