    You can apparently reach Star Gold with A3 through buying a LON-ZRH-BKK on Swiss, flying in discounted Business fare one way and returning in a mid-level Economy the other way. Other perks seem to be status for three years. Haven’t looked at this in much detail, but I hear from many sources this is the simplest Star Gold out there.

    May I ask where Str8talking, you found this information?? Thanks

    An email sent directly from Aegean Airlines. I have made many Diamond Club redemptions with Aegean so I assume they cross referred data!

    In related news, Aegean appears to be added and transferring flights to London Gatwick.

    Athens – London Gatwick
    A3606 ATH0815 – 1015LGW 321 x167
    A3607 LGW1115 – 1700ATH 321 x167

    Larnaca – London Gatwick
    A3758 LCA1250 – 1550LGW 320 D
    A3759 LGW1640 – 2320LCA 320 D

    I wonder what’s happening to the Larnaca slots at Heathrow?

    Would like to thank Srt8Talking for posting this – Aegean have proved incredibly fast at both responding to emails and implementing their status match – and what an ingenious way to get more loyal customers! Good on them!

    Agree with TrolleyDolley – thanks Str8Talking, I got a Gold Status match and they sorted it very quickly.

    Couple of things here. What does Aegean gain if everyone status matches then flies LX, LH etc?

    Indeed miles earned are the same but you lose the 25% bonus you would get flying LX with an M&M card.

    Then I noticed a ticket in F to S. Africa or N. America is priced at 150,000 and 120,000 miles respectively. Via the M & M site it’s priced at 170,00 miles to each destination!

    Anyone know the answers?
