Virgin America Will Match Elite Status on U.S. Airlines

Virgin America will match elite status with United, American, Southwest, and Delta for a 90 day period.  After the 90 days, you must earn a certain number of status points during a 90 day challenge period.

You must sign up for Elevate or already be a member to participate in this offer.  TripBadger offers details on the Elevate program here.

How to Match:

Email  with your name and Elevate number, plus a screenshot of your most recent mileage summary or a copy of your membership card showing your name and current elite level with a qualifying airline.

Full details on the Challenge are available on Virgin America’s website here.

To Retain your Status:

During the 90 day challenge period, you must earn the following number of status points:

  • Elevate Silver: Earn 5,000 status points
    • Virgin America Visa Signature cardholders need only earn 3,000 status points
  • Elevate Gold: Earn 12,000 status points
    • Virgin America Visa Signature cardholders need only earn 8,000 status points


If you have elite status, this is a great opportunity to experience Elevate status completely free for a limited time. It’s also an easier way to retain status, particularly for Virgin America Visa Signature cardholders (retaining Elevate Silver will only require one round-trip cross country flight). Virgin America is a highly rated airline, having been ranked by Travel & Leisure magazine readers as the top domestic airline several years in a row.
