Forums Frequent flyer programs Virgin Flying Club Virgin Status Match from BA – flight after BA membership year expires?

  • dahokolomoki 103 posts

    I’m looking to book a Virgin flight booked for end-August. Don’t currently have any status with Virgin.

    I’ve got BA Gold status, but this expires early-August. I won’t be retaining Gold, will be dropping to Silver.

    Will Virgin still give me a status match, as the Virgin flight I’ve booked to quality for the SM, is after the end of my BA membership year? But I will be booking the flight and applying for the SM now, while still in the Gold membership year.

    Yes, I have a match pending in May from the recent promo but my BA silver expires in April.

    When I applied in January with a card expiring in February I was politely told to reapply after my BA card had renewed, even though after I pointed out the screenshot I had provided showed I had retained Gold.
