I haven't seen it posted here on MilePoints, but the Accor hotel chain's loyalty program, A|Club, will give its members who are Flying Blue elites the status in A|Club that they hold in FB. In other words, if you are Gold in Flying Blue, A|Club will upgrade you to Gold status in A|Club. All you need to do is to send an e-mail to A|Club at contact.aclub [at] accor.com giving your A|Club number and your Flying Blue number, mention your Flying Blue status, and that you understand A|Club will match that status. In my experience, you'll get a return e-mail a day or two later saying they have upgraded your status, giving you your new A|Club number (the number changes slightly depending on your elite status, just as the old Flying Dutchman number used to), and promising you'll get your new card in the mail soon. If you're not already an A|Club member, you can become one by going to the A|Club website at http://www.a-club.com/en/ and joining. It's a good club to be a member of if you travel in Europe a lot, since the Accor chain has thousands of hotels using its various brands in Europe. It's particularly handy if you are an elite member of another hotel chain, and that chain doesn't have a property where you are staying but the Accor chain does, since you'll get elite treatment there instead of having to settle for mere "guest" status elsewhere. This, coupled with the recent FB status match promotion, also raises some interesting possibilities. For example, a United Airlines 1K member could have matched status to Flying Blue as a Platinum, and could now take that FB Platinum membership and use it to join A|Club and upgrade to Platinum level in A|Club.
