Elite status update for 2020:
Accor Plus is, behind the scenes, working with an extension, unclear for how long, after this COVID-19 pandemic is over.
Considering that nobody knows when can all travel again, perhaps this is not the worst strategy. I would imagine that the extension ends up being at a minimum of 6 months and perhaps up to a year.
