Just checked in with USless using my Turkish gold status FFN and US Airways refused to waive the bag fees claiming that *Gold wasn't showing up on my account. When logged in to Turkish's website it clearly shows me as a gold. I had them re-enter the number at least 3 times...

Any ideas?

I know on my turkish account until it came up on other star alliance carriers that i was gold on turkish took about a week.

How long were you gold on turkish before you tried to take this US flight

Just a couple days. I guess that's why it wasn't showing up.

Should have asked for a manager.

I live in a US Airways hub city. They have terrible CS at their check in counters, especially when it comes to baggage fees. Asking for a manager IME only raises your blood pressure. US is only a decent airline if you don't have to interact at all with any of their  personnel.

It may have raised your blood pressure, and it may have gotten you free bags. Your choice, obviously.

awesome, got it! :)    thanks aussie.                i assume there's no way to get a card until you credit a flight to turkish.  is that a problem for getting into lounges?  will they check up a ffn by the star gold lounges to give access?

usually you're boarding pass should say gold which will get you in the lounge

Places I've been, they want a physical card, especially for the lounge, but for the luggage not.

I may be wrong but when I tried skyteam lounges all they asked for was the boarding pass to sea that I was gold

boarding pass doesn't help if you're not flying on a star alliance airline.

I have been waiting a month for my wife and I to be matched from them. I have sent multiple emails and the correct info. Anybody have a number to call to speak to someone there in English?

scratch that... it seems you could only use the lounge if you're flying on a *A airline... takes away quite a bit from the value, but still can't complain on 2 yrs free gold
