Japanese Star Alliance carrier ANA is offering a rare status match opportunity for North America based flyers.

ANA says that, for example, AA Gold status and Delta Silver status will be matched to ANA Bronze status, which is Star Alliance Silver. And ANA says that AA Platinum or higher and Delta Gold or higher will be matched to ANA Platinum status, which is Star Alliance Gold.

ANA also says they will also consider matching status from any non-Star Alliance airline. Status from last year or this year can be matched.

To request a status match, you must first be enrolled in the ANA Mileage Club.

You can then fill out the status match request form.

ANA won’t email you when you receive the status match, you’ll just have to keep checking the ANA site or app to see if your status has been upgraded.

Status matching can take up to 14 business days.

Matched status will expire 3/31/23.

Star Alliance Silver status doesn’t really have meaningful benefits, but Star Alliance Gold status does.

Star Alliance Gold status allows you and a guest access to Star Alliance lounges worldwide when flying on any Star Alliance carrier. Incredibly, non-United Star Alliance Gold status also works to get access to United Clubs even when flying on domestic itineraries. United doesn’t even allow their own 1K Star Alliance Gold elites to access United Clubs on domestic first class tickets unless they have a paid United Club membership!

Star Alliance Gold status comes with a free checked bag, but it doesn’t stack on top of the free bag that United credit cards come with. However if you are flying internationally on a flight with 1 free bag, you will get 2 free bags.

Star Alliance Gold status also comes with priority baggage handling, priority boarding, priority Gold Track security and immigration lines, priority waitlisting, and upgrades to business first class on the Heathrow Express.

United does not give economy plus seats or upgrades to partner Star Alliance Gold members, though they do offer free same day confirmed flight changes.

It’s worth noting that ANA also has an excellent Star Alliance award chart with bargains like a business class round-trip to Europe or South America for 88K miles, to Asia for 95K miles, to Israel or Africa for 104K miles, or to Oceania for 120K miles.

ANA also still has an awesome old-school round-the-world award chart with up to 8 permitted stopovers, though those have to be booked over the phone.

You can transfer miles from AMEX to ANA at a 1:1 ratio.

AMEX cards with transferable Membership Rewards points to ANA include:

I have American platinum pro status. If i get this, can I still do a united status match?


What do they request as proof is a screenshot enough?


Any point in getting ANA status if one already has *G?


Yah I just got SQ gold, so I guess no point of this


Can you access *A lounges if not flying on a *A carrier?


Can this be matched with the matched ITA status?


Gonna try my Alaska Gold (expiring after a year from a status match )


Is this a challenge (3 months trial ) or a match?


I will be matched with *Alliance Silver, I’m flying with United April 18th what information do I need to get the Silver benefits?


Trying delta gold


What proof do they require they you have the staus?


“business class to Israel for 104K miles” – How is it booked? and on what partner airline? Thanks


Ana. Star alliance partners.


It says the “Status card kit” will not be provided. If so, can I still access United Club without a physical membership card?


How do you use Star Alliance Gold through ANA if you’re flying, say, United and want to get United mileage points but don’t have status with United.


ANy chance getting matched from a Hertz Presidential?


When does this end?

ANA Charges me 104k to Israel RT BUT above $1500 in fuel surcharges. Is that the norm ?.


@dan do you have to fly if you are matched? I’ve seen other airlines offer a match and then a challenge with a minimum number of miles you have to fly to keep the matched status . Thanks for sharing this!


Anyone got matched? How long did it take?


Where on there website would I see if I was matched?


Anyone got matched? Where on the website or the app would u see it?


how does it work with star alliance? once i get matched to ANA platinum, how do i see that im star alliance gold? i dont have a star alliance card/account. when i will fly with united they will see im star alliance gold?


Haven’t seen anything noting i’ve been matched yet. Where do you see it?


It matched today (I think) on the app. It shows now “platinum” matched from delta gold.


My Account just got upgraded to Platinum, and Star Alliance Gold. I submitted my status match request on April 6th.
Use the ANA Mileage App (not the regular ANA App), and press on Digital membership card, to check if your account was upgraded:


I matched successfully from Delta Plat to ANA Plat. Thanks, Dan.


Is there anywhere I can see on a computer if I was matched from American Platinum?


Just applied for this – how do I access lounge or any Benifets when flying united, where do I access my “star alliance membership” and how do I input it for united ?

shoot for the star gold

Do you have to credit the flight to Ana whenever flying so that they see you’re star gold? How do other airlines see it?
