    This question may have already been asked... I fly often on Lufthansa, Aegean, Austrian. Mostly on short distances, so I want to achieve Star Alliance Gold Status based on number of segments. Which Star Alliance frequent flyer program allows me to 'collect segments' on LH, OS, A3 flights and will get me to Gold the quickest? Anybody know? I just want the fastlane and lounge access, points/miles are usually hard to redeem anyway.. Thanks!

    It seems like youre based in Europe. It doesnt seem like you can use segments to qualify for Star Gold with either A3 or LH's program

    United will allow you to qualify for status on segments and with a foreign address, you're not subject to the PQD requirement. United Premier Gold is the lowest level with Star Gold status and at minimum 60 segments are required. You earn 0-1.5 segments per flight depending on your purchased fare class. However, you must fly 4 segments with United annually before being granted status.

    You can find the earnings chart here: https://www.united.com/CMS/en-US/Marketing/CustComm/Promotions/Pages/AirlinePartners.aspx
