how do u get life time status at continental ? And can u get silver elite by miles or u have to actually fly continental ?
You can get Silver elite status by getting:
-A status match from another airline.
-Purchasing a Latin America Portfolio.
-25,000 EQM's in a year.
-1,000,000 lifetime EQM's.
-Getting flex EQM's with the Continental Presidential Plus card.

 CO doesnt Upgrade for free on their Intl flights except for Central Am and Peru North.Can and Mex but they use RJs for alot of these anyway

 In other words if a Flight has BF and not 1st class then no free upgrades

 since TLV is BF no free Upgrades even to their top level Elites. It will take a co-pay ($$ depends on the fare basis purchased, the cheaper the tkt the more the co-pay usually) and I believe 30k each way in miles

 The 2 free upgardes in the LA pkg states its to LA (Latin Am) and doesnt include Brazil or Argentina

 Now $199 for Silver might not be bad if you have no Status and plan to fly with a checked bag as a bag will cost $15 or $20 each way. The chances for a Silver to get an Upgrade on a US flight has dropped very low

Your address needs to be in Latin America.
After you do that try contacting a Latin America office.

If you don't give a real address you won't get the certs, but you'll still get 7,500 miles and Silver for $199.
