    See here:

    www.thanks-by-flyingblue.com

    Seems to be very open in what they will match, valid until the end of March.

    If you give the number of an existing member on the form (which I am not, so don't ask me, although I'll happily take a Like instead!), you get 2,000 bonus miles if you take a flight within 3 months, and the referrer get 1,000.

    I applied too. I will never fly KL/AF, but I guess I can use it with other ST partners for lounge access...

    It's not "bonus" miles as that term is usually used (meaning "non-status" miles), they're offering level miles (which means miles that count for status)!

    Did you receive the actual card? Or did it show up on your account that you have been upgraded? Also, when does your newly upgraded membership with them expire? 2012 or 2013?

    AFAIK they are Award miles (so no Level miles). At least that's what the Dutch version says.

    Did you receive an answer ?
     
  14. Nope. I re-applied with a "member gets member" email link, just in case I had done something wrong. Let's hope. My next flight with AF is in June so I am not in such a hurry. But getting status level might influence a lot the trips I am gonna book in the coming 3 months!

    Hmmm. Four days there, but a week for me and no response one way or the other.

    Ditto - one week and counting.
    This would really help make my mind up about AF's current offer of £999 LHR-BOS Business!

    I sent the request around 3/21. No email yet and FB account still shows Ivory. Anyone else in the same boat?

    Any idea how long it takes once a match is processed to receive a card (for purposes of lounge access)?

    Failed logic with their ANA match as they offer ANA Platinums FB Gold but then offer Super Flyers Club (like a lifetime membership) FB Platinum. Moreover, they offer ANA Platinum - FB Silver. I think they got that all the wrong way around.

    Some people commented it was showing "Due to the large number of applications, your file will be processed within six to eight weeks to come."on the main page

    As a data point, I sent in my request on Saturday, March 19th, and got an e-mail welcoming me to FB Plat status yesterday evening (March 29th). I was matching from LH*G and used the German version of the form.

    I've seen AF-KL routinely take four weeks to four months for card delivery when it came to status matches they granted last year and this year, although two weeks is possible too. That's right -- 4 weeks to 4 months, although I think the 4 month situations were all due to AF-KL sending them to business addresses where they got lost in the shuffle.
