BA do match, silver is relatively simple, Gold very hard. This has been discussed ad nauseum over the years on the BA forum. A direct approach does NOT work however, you have to be a bit more crafty, I have helped about 6 people get matches on BA, even one from FT. Take a look through the archives.

AF does match, it depends what market you are in. In IST I was offered a match straight up awhile ago in France forget about it. I do not know about the UK.

LH gives matches away like candy in certain markets (like the UK), the key is to show them long haul traffic, not just German and Euro flights, they are not interested. In and around Germany forget it. Furthermore Star carriers aren't supposed to poach anyway.
