There are exceptions.

...(which is why I said less than 1%.)

Less questions from people when you don't mention the 0.00001% possibility. ;)

I heard Aegean will change "everyone" to  a new t/c for gold  --around next month, I was also  told not grandfathered --- t/c will be more like other airlines --this is all i was told --- anyone who wants more info try calling Aegean maybe you can learn more --this no surprise if info is right

any more info on this rumor?

Where did you hear this?

from speaking with Aegean( in Greece)  , that is why I said call them and ask some questions if want to find out more -- I asked rep about some rules and I was told this is what they are "now" but will change in about a month ( will be like others in star alliance )I was  told  new members will be under new t/c --- i was just passing info as I know some are still trying to qualify and did not want them to post miles to Aegean and be disappointed --call to try to get ur own info

Incorrect. Once you earn Silver, all miles earned up to that point become locked in forever, and no longer expire. Your new deadline, then, is the anniversary of the first flight you took after earning Silver.

There, I just bought you some breathing room. :D

Oh thanks, I didn't realize that. So that gives me a little more than a week extra - till October 31. Any thoughts on the cheapest way to get the 1100 miles I need?

I called Aegean, the agent said that the miles and bonus department is now closed, but he can tell me that he knows there are some changes coming and that they will merge programs with Olympic Airlines.

Yeah... it looks like Dan is only positive about lounge access, probably because of the hassle dealing with an incompetent rep an checkin vs when you have ur A3 FF # its hard coded.
Okay, so flashing the A3 Gold card did the job, but now I realize that the agent changed FF # to A3. The flight departed already  :-[ if I change the FF now hack to UA will the miles post to UA? Or its too late?

I also called - the greek office is still open ( 30 210 6261 000)-- was  told gold members now will stay gold for  a year and will be down graded after the year is up  --Aegean  will have 3 levels vs. two now -- they will e/m the info in about a month -as I understand you will need "more" to become and keep gold ,sounds like the big party is over --I assume since Aegean is a regional player it still may be easier to get gold then a UA etc 

In greece they have a local bank that offers a credit card that gives 5k sign up --even with that card it does not work for me as i uses points all the time to travel

as far as Olympic Aegean bought them about 2 years ago any that had Olympic miles b4 they were bought lost them

Call yourself and see if you have better luck :)

Sounds ominous though.
