I'm confused. So what's behind this post:
I don't know for sure but
A. That's from 2 weeks ago.
B. It says that they will remain partners but nothing about earning TIER QUALIFYING miles.

BTW, Dan, where did you get that point from?

I have a few questions (this is somewhat lengthy) and hope some of you can shed some light for me so I can make a decision where to credit a few future flights.

I'm currently A3 Silver (I had my last credited flight on on August 27, 2013 which brought me to 4,000 A3 miles and A3 Silver). My status was elevated to to A3 Silver on September 1, 2013 "card upgrade."

The way I understand the rules, I can choose the 12 month period where I try to go for gold. Since I am still at 4,000 miles (never flew since 2013) and A3 silver, is there a due date that I need to obtain the additional 16,000 miles to get to gold? The way I understand it, the 12 month cycle doesn't start until I begin accumulating miles past the 4,000 mark. Contrastingly, do I need to credit my final 16,000 miles within a year of my last flight that got me to 4,000 miles (August 27, 2013) or within a year of when I was elevated to A3 Silver (September 1, 2013)?

My final set of questions is that I have several AC flights coming up, all Z class. Two of the flights are on AC's Rouge (international flights) and the other two are on standard AC metal (international flights). I understand that AC metal flights get 200% accumulation of A3 miles, but I am not so sure the chart is clear on AC Rouge flights in Z class (they have several expired dates on their chart and it seems as though Z class might have fallen off completely??) Finally, my last flight (AC metal) will be on September 1, 2014 (exactly 1 year when I was elevated to A3 silver) and slightly over 1 year after I had my last qualifying flight (August 27, 2013).

Will I qualify for A3 Gold as long as the above flights are 16,000 miles accumulation or more (the AC metal flights alone on Z class will put me over that even if I received no credit for the AC Rouge flights)? Or, will I be past the 12 month period and all of this would go to waste for gold?

As for your first question, you need to get 16K within a year from getting the Silver status, e.g. by Aug' 27 2014.

Thanks for the response. I've had
Several people respond to me that said it
Is within any one year period. Since the initial
4,000 remains, any activity after that to achieve
The remaining 16,000 miles must be in a one year period. 
In other words, you don't have to work on the gold
Right after the flight that gets you blue, but
You do have to earn the remaining to get gold within
A one year period.  There's an Aegean forum on
FT and that's how it's worded in the intro wiki. 
You're the first to respond contrary.  Any other opinions?

Is the card necessary or is it enough if it shows up on the boarding pass? I'm fighting with aegean for months to post miles I deserve which would get me gold status and I hope it'll be resolved soon but the card won't be here in time for my next flight. Will the boarding pass be enough for gold member perks (free luggage, lounge access etc).

Some people have had success by presenting a Blue card and the printout from the A3 Web site showing Gold stats. It's obviously YMMV.

I'm exactly in the same situation as you, and what I really need is the extra luggage allowance for a specific flight. Getting gold afterwards will not help me that much.

the card is not necessary if gold shows on ur BP at least in Lufthansa lounges
