So Simon looks like your Malve status actually worths something AY and AB are offering similar matching. While it makes sense for AY and AB to match those status, no idea why JAL will offer this and not BA
*edited incorrect info*
Either way, should give me another calendar year of Sapphire at the worse.
Will Airberlin Gold be OW EM? I hope so as that might be a good deal too.
well they know it expired before malev went belly up. you should try doing that with AB they might not know AY is offering the same status match too
Hmmm no point doing more than one. JAL for the Diamond or Sapphire for another year and Airberlin for Emerald.
really? i have a recording of you saying otherwise status till March 2013. You will have JMB Sapphire till March 2013 without the match
Oh sorry you are right. I forget what year we are in. I`ll give it a try and see what happens.
u know u do have to fly on JAL on fares eligible for miles once before they will match u right? when did your emerald status expire?
and it's JMB Europe that's doing the match...you might have to move to europe first
Yes. I`ll be flying on an upgradable fare to Aus twice this year so that shouldn`t be a problem.
My Emerald expired at end of March, they were slow at with the Gold card so i suspect some people wouldn`t have got their new status cards.
*edited to correct date*
Should be fine. It says nothing about your residence or address.
I`m not even sure why JAL is matching given Malev never flew outside of Europe. It makes more sense for BA to match or Fin Air.
i don't think u will be able to get matched but worth a try. It sounds like they will check your status with your number as you only need to provide your membership number not the card
But JMB Europe won't and can't process JMB Japan members
that's what i said
damn i really am stuffed. my malev status address is japan though
still doesn't hurt to try but i still think they will just match it to Sapphire if they do
Should i fax them?
Maybe i fax them in Japanese!
I believe they only ask for number not the card because they can verify the status. Either way you will be exposed IMHO
I`m going the fax route .... hopefully they appreciate the traditional route!
i think u r just hoping that they miss your expiration date
Okay just to share with you how things are going. Emailed JAL Japan and they are looking into the matter and advised it will take a week to investigate. Air Berlin are refused to match Emerald to Emerald and not stating a reason which doesn`t make any sense when you look at what is written on the OW website about the match
Giving someone OW Sapphire is hardly enabling them to retain their top level Emerald status......
has your status expired? No one should be matching your expired status
Expires end of this month.
