Attaining Gold Status:
This top tier status is attained with Qualifying Miles, the miles earned with THAI and Star Alliance airlines, during 2 rolling month periods, 50,000 Qualifying miles during a 12 month period, or 80,000 Qualifying miles during a 24 month period. Additionally, completing 40 international sectors on THAI in any 12 rolling month period also attains Gold status.* This is a system automated process whereby on the most recent activity all eligible flights are evaluated for the past 12 and 24 month periods. With each new flight activity, status is again evaluated during the past 12 and 24 months, ensuring that all eligible flights are counted for attaining Gold status.
Retaining Gold Status:
Evaluations for retaining Gold status are on a personal calendar year based on the validity of your Gold status. On the date which current Gold validity commences, eligible flights are evaluated for the following 12 month period to ascertain if the 50,000 Qualifying Miles threshold or 40 international sectors on THAI are achieved*. The same process is done for the next successive 12 month period, until the end of current card validity, for 40 international sectors on THAI, or during the entire 24 month period in which 80,000 Qualifying Miles must be earned.
*Excluding travel in G / V / W / L classes for both attaining and retaining Gold status.
