Moving to US
Hi Lucky, I have moved from Australia to US where I have Qantas platinum status. I am wondering what is the best way to attain executive platinum status with AA given they won’t status match? I am currently using my qantas Platinum number on AA Bookings so as to get access to lounges and seat selection, but I don’t get any of the perks like upgrades like a AA Exec platinum member would receive. What is your advice here?
You could try a status match with Alaska airlines. I’m not sure if there is any solution to your question other than flying with them. Maybe someone else knows better.
Put your QF number on your reservation for lounge access but switch at the gate to AA so you start accruing towards EXP?
Use your QF status this year but, book so that you can get AA status next year.
