Egyptair Plus is one of the lesser-known Star Alliance programs with reasonable status requirements and award chart.
Now, the airline has upped the requalification requirements of its Gold status effective January 20, 2020.
You can access Egyptair here.
Here’s the email that Egyptair has sent out:
Here are the essential changes:
- 40,000 instead of 30,000 tier miles
- 36 sectors instead of 32
I should probably have a look at this Egyptair Plus, but I don’t like programs that make redeeming awards difficult by having to phone them instead of just issuing on the website.
The requalification period on Egyptair appears to be TWO years instead of one making the Gold-status one of the easiest around the Star Alliance.
