Land 50,000 status points, and you'll take your membership to the highest level: Elevate Gold Status. Each day, we'll check your eligibility for Elevate Gold Status based on the number of status points you earned over the last calendar year, and as soon as you earn 50,000 Elevate status points, you're golden. So, if you earn 50,000 status points on May 1, 2014, you'll keep your Elevate Gold Status through February 28, 2016.
How to keep Elevate Gold Status:
After your first full year of Elevate Gold Status, you’ll need to earn 50,000 Elevate status points by December 31 each year to renew your benefits. If you earn fewer than 50,000 Elevate status points in a calendar year, no worries. We’ll just renew your Elevate membership in Silver Status.
In the meantime, keep flying on us to keep enjoying your priority perks:
We like it when you’re out of line.
Use your Elevate Gold Status to check in from the First Class lane at the airport, check up to three bags and enjoy Priority Baggage Handling free of charge, breeze through Priority Security, and be one of the first onboard every flight with Priority Boarding. Plus, you're entitled to three free day passes to the Virgin America Loft at LAX, where you can sip drinks, grab a snack, and kick back before your L.A. flights. Plus, Elevate Gold members can purchase additional passes for only $20 per person.
Take the good seats.
As an Elevate Gold member, you’re on the short list for complimentary upgrades to Main Cabin Select, where you can kick back with extra legroom and free food, drinks, and premium entertainment on demand.
