  • Who should attend this masterclass?
    A: Anyone with airline elite status who is interested in trying the perks and benefits with a new US or Canadian airline.
  • Are there any prerequities to attending?
    A: You need to have an existing elite status tier membership with a US or Canadian airline (eg: American Airlines Platinum status). If you don't currently hold elite status, or you're unsure about your airline elite status, this masterclass may not apply to you.
  • Will you show me step by step how to get a status match with airline xx ?
    A: The masterclass will provide you with the necessary information and resources to prepare for your first status match application, help you through the process of how to contact airlines, what to say/how to ask for a status match, along with an email template you can use to contact an airline.
  • Why do I need to know this stuff if your service already provides this?
    A: StatusMatch.com doesn't support every airline. There are times when our service won't be able to help you (for example - your elite status has expired), and you are better off contacting the airline directly. This masterclass will help guide you through some basic scenarios so that you can apply for a status match without our assistance.
  • Can I register and watch the recording later?
    A: Yes. Although, if you want to be part of the Q&A and ask questions to the masterclass speaker, you will need to be present during the live online masterclass event. A recording of the masterclass will remain active in your StatusMatch account for up to 14-days after the masterclass.
  • I have another question about the masterclass
    A: Send an email to [email protected] and we'll do our best to assist.
