From zero to SA gold in 1 trip After collecting *A points for years on LH miles and more for years and not getting past silver status I decided I had to do something new.

So I found the EgyptAir Plus program which offered a seemingly simple solution to attaining gold status with just one trip.
EgyptAir offer a "family program". I have seen similar programs in BA, Iberia etc. But I think this is the first time I found this program actually credits family STATUS miles.

It was a bit of a gamble since the information in EgyptAir website is so bad and with so many typos, it's almost funny.

I was planning a family trip from Israel to South America this summer (couple + 2 kids), and decided to try it to see if it works.

So I sent EgyptAir all the information they require (passport copies and relation of passport holders to me) and after a few days received an email with membership numbers for all family members.

We flew with TK in economy which gave approx  15,000 miles each R/T, just enough to attain the gold status.

Sure enough, a day after I completed the trip I was credited with all the miles and a new (digital - they still need to mail it to me) star alliance gold card.

EgyptAir requires 30,000 miles for silver and an additional 30,000 for gold which is valid for 2 years.

Their redemption calculator seems reasonable though I have yet to try it.

Thought I'll share this information with you and would be glad to answer any questions.

How many "wives" can I add?  ;D

It only specifies up to 5 family members.

If 2 wives only gave you 3 kids, she's useless and you should dump both and find a more fertile wife.
