    Diamond Plus was previously a higher *G tier, for those who manage 100k miles in the two year qualifying period. And previously, to achieve lifetime Platinum status, you'd have to fly 1 million *A miles or 1000 sectors on Asiana.

    They've now launched lifetime Diamond Plus status: simply accrue 500k miles on *A or Asiana flights, or 500 Asiana segments. That gives you lifetime Star Alliance Gold status, and the other benefits of Diamond Plus status. That makes it the most straightforward *G lifetime plan, I think?

    Any guesses on if this program might be revoked within the next ~5 years? I need a backup *A mileage program to credit my miles over 100K on LH M&M...

    Well, Asiana joined Star Alliance 8 years ago, is pretty well respected, and so I don't see the airline disappearing any time soon. As for the lifetime offer, it seems to be a competitive move as KE has a similar offer, hence, I'm not sure why they would withdraw it.

    Indeed witness the loss of bmi lifetime status for those who earned it.
