Upcoming Webinar: Status Challenges

If you already have elite status with one airline, did you know that you can leverage this to get a free status match challenge with other airlines? That's right, you can enjoy perks like airport lounges, access to priority queues and more upgrades... before you've even flown with an airline!

Qantas, Virgin Australia, American Airlines, United, Delta and Air Canada are among the list of airlines that all offer fast-tracks to elite status. In fact, using status challenges, you can reach top-tier status on all three of the major airline alliances - Oneworld, Star Alliance and SkyTeam - extremely easily.

In most cases, you'll get to enjoy the perks of your status during the challenge period - regardless of whether you meet the specified target. And if you complete the challenge successfully, you'll get to keep your status for up to two years.

Tonight's Frequent Flyer Solutions webinar will show you everything you need to know to maximise status challenges and easily obtain top-tier airline status!
