"We inform that each Frequent Flyer programme is run by the corresponding airline company, having its own rules and benefits. So we can not perform the Status Match as requested.
To obtain the Gold status it is necessary that you gather 70,000 Status miles or 50 TAP flights within your personal membership year.
For further information please feel free to contact us at any time."
