  1. […] across this news from this blog and thought it might be useful to some. You are already a status member of another frequent flyer […]

  2. Hi Tom,
    Do you of anyone successfully leveraging Air Malta status for anything useful? Is there hope for a lowly “Permanent” member?

      They’re not even mentioned on http://statusmatcher.com/ – time to send out a few begging letters?

      • That’s the first place I looked. Not that my Air Malta card would necessarily be any good. They’re written my full name and right justified it, meaning my first name “Charles” has been truncated to “les” which has suddenly become my nickname in the family.

      I have zero success, as I’ve never tried 🙂 However in the current case I matched airberlin to my Etihad status.

      That said I do know people who’ve successfully matched Air Malta Flypass Diamond, which is understandable.

      I would give it a try with Flypass permanent, you never know, you may get Silver.
