Virgin America is offering elite status matches to United and American flyers.
If interested, email email@example.com with your Virgin America frequent flyer number and either a screen shot of your elite status account with United or American or a copy of your elite card.
They will match United Platinums and 1Ks and American Executive Platinums to their top tier Gold status, and American Platinums and United Golds to their Silver status.
Status only lasts through April 30, but there’s an expedited requalification scheme.
Certainly Virgin America wants as many high value customers as possible given their financial performance. I’m tempted by the offer, since I’ve never flown them. But top tier elite status only gets you the right to buy up to first class on a space available basis 24 hours prior to flight. While I hear good things about the product, that’s not enticing for me.
