Title: Turkish Airlines Status Match
Post by: aussiebochur on May 18, 2012, 07:11:57 AM
Turkish Airlines is currently offering a status match from other airlines.

If you're a Silver-level cardholder, you'll be matched to Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles Classic Plus level, which is Star Alliance Silver.
Gold-level cardholders will be matched to Miles&Smiles Elite, which is Star Alliance Gold.

Status is valid for 2 years from date of status match.

In order to get the match, Sign up for a Turkish Airlines M&S Account here (https://www4.thy.com/tkmiles/newmember.tk?method=initiation&lang=en).


Then email Turkish Airlines, customermiles@thy.com. including a scanned copy of your existing frequent flyer card and your most recent account statement.

What's also really great is their re qualification requirements,
In order to re-qualify for Classic Plus membership (*S) (http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-cy/miles_and_smiles/about_us/card_levels/kart_classic_plus.aspx), a Classic card holder needs to collect 17.000 Status Miles either within the first year or 35.000 Status Miles within 2 years of the Classic Plus membership.

In order to re-qualify for Elite membership (*G) (http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-cy/miles_and_smiles/about_us/card_levels/kart_elite.aspx) members residing out of Turkey need to collect 25.000 Status Miles either within the first year or 37.500 Status Miles within 2 years of the Elite membership. Otherwise, the membership status will be renewed as "Classic Plus".

Here (http://www.turkishairlines.com/en-cy/miles-and-smiles/partners/when-you-fly) you can see all the accrual rates for their partners.

Do I need to add some activity or is that irrelevant? Thanks

if I fly LH and credit miles to non premier United account, will the Turkish elite card gain me entry into *G lounges even though boarding pass doesn't show *G status?

Also are there any good status match offers for sky team or one world?

What if there is no recent activity? are they just looking to verify account existence or do they want to see if you really fly and you earned your current status and not just had it matched?

Should have asked for a manager.

I live in a US Airways hub city. They have terrible CS at their check in counters, especially when it comes to baggage fees. Asking for a manager IME only raises your blood pressure. US is only a decent airline if you don't have to interact at all with any of their  personnel.

They finally sent me my card (nice to be Gold!) but didn't send my wife's even though she got Elite status. I therefore called them in Turkey yesterday (luckily I use Boss Revolution!) and after 20 minutes they said they would send it out. But here is my question_- we are flying to Israel later this month. I am already Gold on United, so I get 3 bags of 70 lbs. my wife is just Silver status, but is Gold ELite on Turkish Air- but doesn't have the card (she has her number). We are flying her using her Aegean Air number so she will match there and get 4 years of Gold status. So, the question is- if she is flying on United using her Aegean number, can she bring 3 bags of 70 lb each by showing them her Turkish Air number? Thanks.

if you're star gold, then everyone booked on the same reservation as you will have your gold baggage allowance

No.

Put her TK number on her reservation to get her bags, then AFTER check-in ask a different agent (or kiosk) to change the FFN to her Aegean number.

UA/US will not match same alliance. And even if they did, UA offers a 90 day "status challenge", not a true match (not sure about US, but pretty sure they don't truly match either).

True... but then again, we also need to know connection times, how good comfort class is, baggage policies, and peoples experiences with Turkish. But you don't see those topics here... they all get their own threads.

My point is, justice because something is somehow related, it doesn't mean it belongs in the same thread. Otherwise you'd see people asking if a Mazda 3 has good acceleration in the Israel car rentals thread, or people asking about Lufthansa's upgrade policies in the Star Alliance search tips thread. And that would make this place a big cluttered mess for everyone... :o

Just got a response to my request from December, that my AA ExPlat card that I submitted expired in Feb and I should submit a copy of my current card + 2 recent statements.  I no longer have AA ExPlat, only Gold.  But I did get the Flying Blue Gold status match.  Can I send a copy of the card in?  What do I do about the statements?  They obviously show 0 activity/points.
