For the first time I’ve managed to achieved Gold status with the Flying Club. The flight that pushed me over the top had to be entered manually for some reason.

Anyhoo, I’m wondering if I get sent anything for this like a welcome pack, or physical card.

I’m old enough to remember being sent plastic luggage tags when I got Silver for the first time back in the 1990s.

Welcome to the club!

You used to get the plastic card sent out, sometimes days after achieving it, other times it would take months. I would expect that still happens but not sure.

Other than that, nothing. Your status changes in your account and that's it. The real fun is your first Gold trip using the clubhouse etc.

I’ve been gold 3 months and had nothing but trouble getting it, all Virgins errors. I only knew it was Gold looking on my Virgin app and have received nothing from Virgin notifying me

A few months ago, whilst chatting to Flying Club, I also asked about getting a couple of replacement Gold bag tags as the ones I have are battered now, however, the agent seemed to think they are now no longer offered (along with membership cards). He was going to send an email to Flying Club support to check and nothing ever turned up so I presume his info was accurate.

My AU account resets at the end of this month so I will see what happens then as well.
