    I'm Flying Blue "Gold Status" as of today :), based on a status match.

    I have no status on Delta, but if I'm flying domestic USA on a Delta ticket, do I have:

    a. Lounge access?
    b. Pre-boarding privileges?

    Any other goodies?

    As always, thanks for the answers

    FB Gold should be SkyTeam Elite Plus, but do you have proof of your new status? Have you updated (remove and reapply) the FB FF number attached to your current flight?

    If you have proof or if it shows on your boarding pass, you would board in zone 1, with DL Silvers, IIRC. At some airports, you would be allowed to use special lines for check in and security. You would also be at the bottom of the list for a free domestic upgrade to FC, which could happen on an empty off-peak flight with few elites.

    Lounge access requires a same-day SkyTeam international flight.

    I believe it's dependent of your flight. If its international you have a standing chance. If that's the case, ask. If Domestic, I will say unlikely.

    Yep... back in the days of Northwest you could get into a lounge on any delta ticket, but now only when travelling internationally. On the other hand, delta lounges are usually overcrowded and badly stocked, so you don't miss much except the free wifi perhaps :)

    If you're FB, you may be considered "international" because you're outside of Europe. I would ask if I could get it. You might get a nice agent.

    +

    STE+ lounge access (for non SC members) only applies on same day travel. If the OP is not traveling to/from an international destination, gaining lounge access might be a challenge.
