Alitalia Status Match


Just in case you didn’t know, Alitalia is running a status match. Getting your silver, gold or platinum card matched is easy, just follow the steps below:

Getting a status match is very easy. Send an email to [email protected] by December 31, 2015 with the following:

  • First name and last name
  • MilleMiglia code
  • A legible copy of your existing valid Frequent Flyer program card

Your status will be effective 8 working days after you send the request email and will be maintained until March 31, 2016. To confirm that your status has been recognized, you will receive a personalized email from your new Club.

Now you might think: why would i care?

For starters you will receive a nice shiny card and some cool luggage tags. The other thing to keep in mind is that if you have a card that expires after March 2016 they will grant you status until 2017. The application (in my case) did not take 5 working days. More like 3 weeks.

The best part; if by any chance you are Velocity Platinum you can match this with Alitalia (SkyTeam) platinum and use it to leapfrog to Star Alliance Gold with the ongoing Turkish Airlines status matching deal. (Turkish Airlines Gold is equivalent of Platinum on OneWorld & SkyTeam, Velocity is not accepted).

With your status match you will also receive 4 upgrades to business class per year. This might sound like a great deal but obviously they can only be redeemed on the more expensive economy fares – still it’s worth keeping an eye out for them.

Last but not least, Etihad is part owner of Alitalia so naturally you can use your gold & platinum card to gain access to Etihad lounges (when flying with them).

That’s it! Let me know if you have any questions 🙂

I managed to status match from my AB gold card (which was a status match from my A3 gold card) as it had a longer expiry date as mentioned above and managed to have status valid till 2017 on the AZ card. Got my match about 3 weeks after I emailed them a copy of the AB card and received my gold card a few weeks later. No luggage tags unlike A3 or AB.
