A very rare status match opportunity is now available to refugees of the former Alitalia Mille Miglia program as Lufthansa matches all the way up to their Senator level.
To see Lufthansa match status from other carriers is extremely rare and usually only happens when a nearby competitor or a Star Alliance member goes out of business.
As Alitalia as well as Mille Miglia program vanished from the skies and a new airline emerged Lufthansa Miles&More thought it’s a good idea to acquire a few new customers this way.
The Status Match offer is limited in number of matches and timeframe – until 31.03.2022 – at the sole discretion of StatusMatch.com and Lufthansa Miles & More. It may end at any time so getting in early is best.
Welcome on board, dear MilleMiglia members.

Here are some FAQ that are posted on the page:
- Who can participate in the Lufthansa Miles & More status match promotion and what frequent flyer status levels are matched?
- A: This promotion gives current Alitalia MilleMiglia status holders an equivalent status with Lufthansa Miles & More. Alitalia MilleMiglia Ulisse status holders get Frequent Traveller status with Miles & More, and Alitalia MilleMiglia Freccia Alata and Alitalia MilleMiglia Freccia Alata Plus status holders get Senator status with Miles & More. You must have a Miles & More service card number to participate in the promotion. If you are not yet a member of Miles & More, you can register in just a few steps.
- How long is the awarded Miles & More frequent flyer status valid, if approved for a status match?
- A: If your application is approved, your status will be valid until 28.02.2023
- I have an elite status with another frequent flyer programme, other than Alitalia MilleMiglia – can I still participate in the promotion?
- A: No. This status match promotion is only offered to elite members of the Alitalia MilleMiglia programme.
So this offer is for the Mille Miglia program only which continues to exist in some form despite Alitalia having turned to dust.
The status with Lufthansa will be valid for roughly 14 months from now. Not exactly a super long term but better than nothing.
One important detail from the t&c: Members that attain a Senator status through this promotion will not receive any eVouchers with the status upgrade and will not be able to use the mileage advance privilege.
Lufthansa has gotten burned that was before when they offered the match in the UK, back then you were still able to overdraw your Senator account by 100,000 miles (now reduced to 50,000). Members matched, booked a business class award, and then “threw away” the account.
If you’re still carrying Alitalia status then I suggest taking advantage of this campaign as Lufthansa FTL and especially Senator are solid tier level that come with useful benefits. Of course for Star Gold benefits a match to Senator level is required.
