    Generally it is a perk of achieving a milestone to be given by the achiever.
    So as an example earning XX miles on United allowed you to pick a gift.
    One of the gifts was to give status to a friend.

    One example is that with the DL FF program, high level elites can choose to give low tier status to someone they designate rather that picking miles or upgrade instruments for their choice benefits. For example, a top tier DM could give GM status to a family member.

    I remember the old days when having ML+ credit card with some (not much) spending could get you status matched on American Airlines (on a yearly basis). Ah, those were the days.
