Instant Kingfisher Silver Status?

Update: Confirmed.  Effective 02/10/12 Kingfisher Silver will have OneWorld Ruby benefits!

My Hilton Gold template just works too well for this…sorry for being lazy!

Kingfisher Airlines has a promotion for Silver status through 05/31/13 with a World Mastercard. It doesn’t seem to work with any of my World Mastercards, but AJ points out 549852 works like a charm. I created a new account and instantly received Silver status and 250 miles.

After entering the number, select that you are not yet a member a registration form will pop-up.  Register with that form to get the Silver status.  If nothing pops up you’ll need to turn off your pop-up blocker and refresh the page.

Of course they’ll probably shut this down once they realize once they’ve done and may even revoke the Silver status of those that register, time will tell! Just don’t come whining to me when they do revoke your silver status as you’ve been warned…

Why should you care about Kingfisher Silver status?  They will enter the Oneworld alliance in February.  They have 2 elite levels higher than Silver, Gold and Platinum.  Odds are that Platinum will earn Oneworld Emerald, Gold will earn Oneworld Sapphire, and Silver will earn OneWorld Ruby.  Why should you care?  Because American gives 2 free bags to all Oneworld Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby members! Plus you should be able to get other bennies like preferred and exit row seating, and priority checkin/security/boarding.

In addition you may be able to status match the status to other airlines to get elite status benefits on airlines from other alliances!

    Got the Silver and 750 miles (250 sign up and 500 for the optional fields marked with the crown symbol). My city of residence was not on the dropdown menu, so I used the nearest major city. After completing the sign up, I went to my profile and it was there along with many other nearby cities that were not there before. If your city was not on the original list, you might want to check now or you may not receive your Silver card that you might need to get the free checked baggage or any other benefits.

    A little clarification that may explain why some people aren’t seeing the “Silver” in their King Club logo……..

    In order to automatically receive Silver status, you must be opening a new King Club account from the promotion page (i.e., click “No” in response to “Are you a Kingclub member?” and fill out the new member form on the page that pops up.) If you set up a new account from the main website, and then click “Yes” in response to “Are you a Kingclub member?”, then you will receive the 250 bonus points, but your account will not reflect Silver status.

    @berish:

    I hate to say it but you probably going to be totally out of luck. AA has zeros for all U (business saver) availablity across the board out of JFK to MAD, BCN, and LHR. You can keep checking back and hope that they open availability late, but odds are stacked against it. Those open seats will most likely be taken by people upgrading with miles & cash and Evips. To get that U availablity you probably have to book more than 300 days out.

    @Mendy:

    Chance of a status match without a challenge with a star alliance airline for a US based person with a Kingfisher account is probably pretty close to nil. I can’t think of anyone but BMI and they usually require you to have a ticketed flight with them. (Plus they are being bought by IAG (BA/Iberia) and will be going one world afterwards)

    Kingfisher Airlines’ oneworld implementation put on hold

    Friday, 3 February 2012: India’s Kingfisher Airlines and oneworld® today agreed to put the airline’s entry into the alliance on hold to give it time to strengthen its financial position.
    Its implementation into oneworld had been planned for Friday, 10 February.
    oneworld CEO Bruce Ashby said: “These are turbulent times for the airline industry in India and many other parts of the world. We have been working closely with Kingfisher Airlines over the past months and it has become increasingly clear recently that the airline needs more time to resolve the financial issues it is confronting before it can be welcomed into oneworld.

    “We wish it well during this process and will work with Kingfisher Airlines with the aim of setting a new joining date once it is through this current period of turbulence.”

    Kingfisher Airlines Chairman Vijay Mallya added: “In light of the many priorities centred around Kingfisher Airlines’ recapitalisation efforts, we felt it prudent to defer our entry into the alliance for a little while. This will allow us the opportunity to focus on the issues at hand and we look forward to being part of the oneworld alliance very shortly.”

    This is a dead link. You only get the lowest level Red, not Silver. Plus, the Kingfisher + Oneworld thing is on hold so Silver wouldn’t land much outside India anyway…
