Easiest Program To Get Star Alliance Gold

Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:14 pm

I’m thinking of flying from DUB-JNB early next year in business and the 2 cheapest airlines are ET via ADD & TK via IST. Will either of these routes get me to Star Gold with any Star Alliance program?

I have no idea but 1 return flight even in Business is normally not enough to get silver, let alone Gold.

Do some research to confirm but historically Aegean has been the fastest path to star alliance gold (even if you don't fly with them directly). I know a lot of people who applied points to Aegean and found that the fastest way to get star alliance status even when flying only on UA.

You need no less than 3 full fare J class R/T's to JNB to get close to Gold

Try TK or ET apps to estimate how much will you earn
