Do I get SA gold benefit if I credit booking to a non-gold account?

Do I get SA gold benefit if I credit booking to a non-gold account?

  1. Anonymous

    For the upcoming next year trip to Singapore, I’m looking at SQ PE. I don’t want to be with UA anymore due to the change of FF program. I did math and I probably will be downgraded to gold even silver because I simply cannot meet the pqf requirement as an international only traveller.
    I am going to Asia often so I am thinking EVA, ASIANA, or Singapore airline to strengthen my credit card currency (chase, amex, Citi. No marriott, hate them)

    Then do I get the star alliance gold benefit like priority check in, boarding, extra luggage if I fill my non status OZ number for SQ flight instead of my SA gold UA number? I think I still get lounge access in united club after showing them my boarding pass and United status. But priority security line is also important to me. Can you show the airport staff your status on the phone to go into the express security line?

    Thank you.

    Link your frequent flier number to your reservation when you book, then ask the gate agent to change it to EVA/Asiana/Singapore, etc. before you board. That way you’ll get those Gold benefits at the airport, but the flight will be credited elsewhere.
