Etihad Airways has now updated the terms and conditions of the Etihad Guest Gold status match campaign that I wrote about last week (access here).

Etihad Guest Gold Status Match Campaign February March 2015

Etihad is offering Etihad Guest Gold status matches until March 15, 2015, for those members that have Gold status or higher with competing airlines.

You can access this offer on Etihad’s website here.

Etihad has now updated the eligible countries for this status match offers:

UAE, UK, USA, Australia, Saudi Arabia, France, Switzerland, China and Japan

Here’s what you need to do:

To receive your Etihad Guest Gold card, follow these simple steps:

  • Existing Etihad Guest members: Send us a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, copy of your latest miles statement along with your Etihad Guest membership number toEYGCorporate@etihad.ae
  •  Non-Etihad Guest members:  Send us a scanned copy of your Gold card with another airline loyalty programme, copy of your latest miles statement along with your full name, email ID, date of birth, physical address and telephone number to EYGCorporate@etihad.ae

Here are some Etihad Guest Gold status benefits:

  • 50% Extra Bonus Miles – Enjoy 50% additional Etihad guest miles in every flight you take on Etihad Airways
  • Extra Baggage Allowance – Enjoy 15 kilos additional baggage allowance on all applicable flights*
  • Enhanced Lounge Access – You and a guest are invited to enjoy our luxurious Business Class Lounges before you fly across our network
  • Guaranteed seats – If you make a booking at least 24 hours in advance, we will guarantee you an Economy Class seat on an Etihad Airways flight of your choice – even if the flight is fully booked.
  • Fast-Track Access – Upon arrival at your destination, skip the queue at border control to enjoy a speedy exit*

Conclusion

Etihad made a similar mistake last year (they haven’t learned) and updated the eligible countries list of similar promotion.

Etihad Airways is trying to win some frequent fliers from competing airlines at these markets by offering a Gold status match.

If you are eligible, taking advantage of this promotion is a non-brainer. Etihad Guest has many partner airlines and Guest Gold benefits apply for some of them.
