Made a rookie error by assuming Velocity was part of Star Alliance (because of their link with Air NZ & Singapore Airlines).
After stacking to get to gold (mostly disc econ or econ fares) I had the rude awakening - Velocity gold is not Star Alliance gold !!
I have a bunch of short & long hauls to book for the coming 12 months.
Is there a quick way to get full Star Alliance gold recognition with my Velocity gold status ?
If I push on to Platinum with Velocity will it make a difference in obtaining Star Alliance recognition.
Or is my only option to start building from scratch with a genuine Star Alliance member ?
Any help is much appreciated as I need to start booking some of these trips asap.
Most future bookings will be economy or disc econ.
