Northwest Elite Status for Asia Residents

Northwest is again explicitly targeting Asia-Pacific frequent flyers with offers of an elite status match.

Details are rather scarce on the website, certainly they’ll match up to Gold (mid-tier) but I wonder whether they’ll go to Platinum since they’re looking for any possible incremental revenue while in bankruptcy. Presumably matched status will last through the end of the year. No information is provided on what documentation is required of your existing status levels.

In all likelihood this will operate in a similar manner as when they offered it in 2005, detailed discussion of which can be found at Flyertalk.com.

  1. As always… Thanks for the great information! I live in Japan and NWA did match my United Executive Premier (Gold) status, although for only 3 months. While NWA does not fly my normal routes, it was very nice having lounge priveleges at airports when my itinerary did not allow me to fly with star alliance.
