Can you use one OW FFP for status and use another OW FFP for points?

    I have Gold card with Air Berlin (OW Sapphire) and I'm considering booking BA flight which will give me 100% avios but only 25% with AB.

    Is it possible for me to get lounge access with my AB Gold and credit the points to BA?

    Thanks in advance!

    Of couse is this possible, and very easy to do.

    I get lounge access with my TK gold card while flying with UA domestic all the time... :)

    I know about the FQTV and FQTS thing with *A but does OW work the same? Can I gain access just by showing my card or it has to have the FFP on my BP?

    Thanks!

    I believe (have no personal experience, so I hope other will confirm) it is the same... but also if not, you can always change your FFP number on your BP in lounge or even at the gate

    Do you have to have your TK number on the BP when flying UA domestic? Or do you book with your MP number and use your TK gold card to get in?

    I ask because I'm hoping to finish my A3 Gold run this fall, but will also have UA Silver, and would love to credit my flights to UA while getting lounge access via A3.

    No, I have my UA number on my boarding pass, but I just use my TK Gold card to get in :)
    By-the-way, you can get TK Gold for 2 years for free -> status match from UA!!

    TK will match to Gold with UA Silver? That would be nice...

    There have been reports/rumors that A3 frowns on people who use their A3 card for benefits while crediting miles to another FF program. Check the Aegean forum on FT for a discussion and be sure to read the A3 rules carefully to see whether they have something in the T&C to make this official.

    FQTS is not widely/reliably supported in any Alliance.

    Yes, you can.

    I have booked my flight with CX, put in my AB number to get the Sapphire benefits for pre-seating, and I'm crediting my miles to BA due to family account. I'm wondering if I change my FFP to BA at check-in, would it affect my pre-booked seat on the way back?

    Thanks in advance!

    very interesting OW question but discussion about UA.
    To answer your question,you can use BA number for ticket and AB card to access lounge. I fly with CX and use my AA status for lounge access.

    I status-matched to TK with my DL Gold Medallion last year, but I never received the actual card. How do you get them to send you a card to use for lounge access?

    You can always write them an e-mail, but it usually takes foreever to get an answer... best strategy is to call...
