    Hello All,

    I have a friend who relocated to US from SIN and wants to get UA status match from Krisflyer program. He still Plan to fly all *A flights but just use the UA program. What the best location or info for this?

    Might be tough as the *A partners tend not to allow poaching of each their related elites. If it is going to work, start here:

    Mileage Plus Service Center
    Attention: Premier Status Match
    P.O. Box 28870
    Tucson, AZ 85726
    Email: premiermatch@united.com
    Fax: 605-341-6140

    Good Luck!

    IF UA won't do Star-to-Star matching, could match over to DL or Alaska and then use that status to get a challenge from UA.

    Does UA do a straight status match or is it some kind of challenge? I am looking to match my Flying Blue Plat to a US domestic carrier that I can in turn match to DL, as I have been advised that DL will not match another SkyTeam member.

    UA offers 90 days of status and a challenge to earn the status.

    Thanks. During the 90 days of status, would I receive an elite card or have the elite status shown online that I could use to send DL for a match?

    It would certainly show online (and your account wouldn't indicate the status as temporary)

    Do you receive the 6 SWUs after you've reached the miles they ask for ?
    Is the Class Bonus (for flying in C/F) accepted to reach the miles they ask for ?

    The SWUs don't come when you complete the related number of segments or miles, but rather when you cross either the 120 segments or 100K EQM threshold(s). The COS bonus will be computed into the SWU awards.

    Did UA accept your Flying Blue Plat for the challenge ?
