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.
How to Match:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
