Platinum Status

Platinum status is the elite level of Royal Orchid Plus, reserved for very frequent flying members who travel exclusively in Royal First Class and Royal Silk Class. Platinum status members enjoy enhanced recognition and benefits when flying with THAI, as well as all Gold status benefits with Star Alliance airlines.

Attaining and Retaining Platinum Status:

Platinum status is attained on accumulating 80,000 Tier Miles in each of 2 consecutive 12 month rolling periods. 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 Platinum status. Tier Miles are the miles flown in Royal First Class and Royal Silk Class, including class of service bonus miles, on THAI operated flights only.

Platinum status is valid for a full 2 years from the date this status was attained. Evaluations for retaining Platinum status are on a personal calendar year based on the validity of Platinum status. On the date which current Platinum validity commences, eligible flights are evaluated for the following 1st12 month period to ascertain if the 80,000 Tier Miles are achieved, and once again for the 2nd 12 month period. If 80,000 Tier Miles are accumulated in both 12 month periods, Platinum status is retained once again for 2 full years.
