Star Alliance Gold Benefits

Since its founding in 1997, one of the key Alliance customer proposition has been offering world-wide benefits on all member airlines to the most loyal customers of the Alliance. In principle, a top level customer enrolled in one airline’s FFP, will be granted enhanced benefits when travelling on any of the 28 member airlines, giving travellers priority treatment throughout their journey.

At the time of reservation, Star Alliance Gold Card holders enjoy a higher priority on the waiting list for flights which are already fully booked, increasing the chances of getting a seat on their preferred flight.

In order to provide a speedy check-in process at the airport, all Star Alliance member airlines offer designated counters for Star Alliance Gold Card holders, which are easily identifiable by the Star Alliance Gold logo. In addition, customers are entitled to an increased luggage allowance (either one extra piece or an additional 20 kilogrammes*).

While waiting for their flight, the Gold Card holders and one guest can make use of more than 1,000 lounges across the global Star Alliance network.
At time of boarding, Gold Card holders are given priority, which allows customers to be one of the first to get onto the aircraft and find storage space for their hand luggage.

Having reached their destination, the priority tag attached to the checked luggage ensures that the premium customer’s baggage is delivered ahead of other baggage.

Further details on the Gold benefits can be found on, including a short video explaining the benefits.

The Star Alliance Gold Campaign

The online interactive Gold Game is part of an on-going Alliance campaign highlighting the benefits of the Star Alliance Gold Status. The communication drive includes testimonials from five bona-fide travellers on what differentiates our Alliance from others. The video statements of the advocates can be viewed at
As part of the overall campaign, one lucky Gold Card holder already won an annual complimentary membership to Quintessentially (  – a global private members club offering a 24 hour luxury concierge service –  through a promotion which ran at the Star Alliance Lounges in Buenos Aires, London – Heathrow T1, Los Angeles – TBIT, Nagoya and Paris – CDG T1 earlier in the year.

* The extra baggage allowance depends to either the weight to piece concept.

Note: TAM Fidelidade and US Airways Dividend Miles Programmes are not participating in this competition, but continue to provide all Star Alliance customer benefits.
