Kingfisher Airlines will soon join the OneWorld Alliance and is offering free silver elite status to select MasterCard holders:
To register, you should have an eligible MasterCard (Platinum, World, Titanium Credit Cards or a Premium Debit Card), and you have to plonk the first 6 digits on the Kingfisher website here, to get your upgraded. Titanium and Platinum tiers get Kingfisher KingClub Red tier, but World MasterCard users get KingClub Silver.
If you read my post yesterday on free Hilton HHonors Gold Status, you know that credit cards of a certain type typically start with the same six digits, in this case 549852.
Benefits of Kingfisher silver status include:
- Personalized baggage tags
- 1 Upgrade voucher
- Priority check-in (Domestic Airports only)
- Excess baggage allowance
- Domestic Lounge Access(for travel on Kingfisher First / Kingfisher Class)
- Priority baggage assist
- Redeem King Miles on Air Boutique ONLINE
- 15% Tier bonus
More importantly, Kingfisher will be joining OneWorld by the end of Februrary. Presumably, that means silver status on Kingfisher will translate to OneWorld Ruby status, meaning (for example) free checked bags and priority boarding when you fly American Airlines.
Hurry, this deal is only valid through 31 December.
