How does this status upgrade work?

You will receive elite status on a Star Alliance member airline at a tier that grants you Star Alliance Gold.

The airline you receive status on will be Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), TAP Air Portugal, or Turkish Airlines.

For example, if Lufthansa is the airline you receive, your Lufthansa Miles & More account will be upgraded to Senator status, which includes Star Alliance Gold.

The exact airline you receive status on depends on supply levels at the time of your purchase. Regretfully, we are unable to take requests for a specific airline on which to receive status. For information regarding the airline on which you will receive status if you purchase this upgrade, please contact us.

How long will it take to receive my Gold status?

After your purchase, your status upgrade will begin processing within one business day. We'll send you an email confirmation when processing begins.

Your account will be upgraded within 3-5 business days of purchase.

How long will my Gold status be valid for?

Your status is valid for 2 years from the date on which it is processed on your account.

Am I guaranteed to receive all the posted benefits on every flight?

That depends! For perks that rely on space being available on the plane, like first class upgrades, you’ll receive the upgrade if complimentary upgrade seats are available to status-holders.

You’ll always receive other perks, like free checked bags and lounge access, as long as you hold status.

Where does my upgrade come from?

We partner with corporate travel management agencies to process your status upgrade. Your upgrade comes from benefits in agreements sold by alliance brands to our partner agencies.

What do I need to do to receive my status?

After submitting your account information, you're done! Your purchase includes a direct upgrade to Gold status on your Star Alliance account.

Which airport lounges can I access?

When you are traveling in any class on a Star Alliance member airline operated flight, you can access any Star Alliance airline lounge at the airport where your flight departs. This includes United Club locations in the United States, regardless of fare class, even when flying domestically.

Can I access United Clubs in the United States?

Yes. Since you will receive Star Alliance Gold status on an airline based outside of the United States, you can access all United Clubs in the United States when flying on a Star Alliance member airline, regardless of fare class or destination.
