These Airlines and Hotels Are Extending Elite Status Through 2021

  Erica Ho   Less than a minute to read

Turn on the white noise machine, and that’s what the year of 2020 is for travel.

There’s probably never been a more fascinating time for travel. After reaching what may be peak globalization, it seems now like we have all reset to our factory default settings (alone at home, in our kitchens, eating). The industry also realizes this, so if you hold elite status, most airlines and some hotels are generously extending status by at least 12 months.

Though some will be lowering the threshold for elite qualification for the next year or beyond, not everyone won’t. That varies by company, and more information on companion status, upgrade certificates and others can also be obtained directly on the carrier or hotel website.

JetBlue, like always, is going above and beyond, by not only extending status, but allowing Mosaic members to gift that status to a friend or family member by June 1 .1 That person would receive status between June 15, 2020, and June 15, 2021.

Check it out.
