I got matched to Turkish Elite from Delta Gold (thank you Aussie for your post).

Now, is there a way to match this to United / US Air status? i know i get benefits with them for being *A gold, but my question is whether i can get direct status with United / US Air?

Thank you
usually matches are to different alliances, here being an exception.

UA/US will not match same alliance. And even if they did, UA offers a 90 day "status challenge", not a true match (not sure about US, but pretty sure they don't truly match either).

Thank you very much. I guess i'll just have to settle for the generic *A benefits when flying UA / US

I don't mean to be too harsh, but that is WAY off topic for this thread. Maybe start a new one...

when considering to credit miles to keep status we need to know the redemption options

True... but then again, we also need to know connection times, how good comfort class is, baggage policies, and peoples experiences with Turkish. But you don't see those topics here... they all get their own threads.

My point is, justice because something is somehow related, it doesn't mean it belongs in the same thread. Otherwise you'd see people asking if a Mazda 3 has good acceleration in the Israel car rentals thread, or people asking about Lufthansa's upgrade policies in the Star Alliance search tips thread. And that would make this place a big cluttered mess for everyone... :o

If I have TK gold and fly TK..am I the only one who gets an extra suitcase? Or does my whole itinerary?
What about if I fly UA? Only I get 3x70 or whole itin?
TIA
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

On UA, it's the whole itinerary.

On TK... it's one of the mysteries of life. ;)
