Possible Flying Blue status match for STC Elites

I ran into some Flying Blue marketeers today at ZRH. One of them started talking to me, asking if I already knew Flying Blue. Before I had the time to answer, he must have determined that I knew nada about frequent flyer programs and started to explain, and this is a literal quote, "it's something like a Supercard, except you get a free flight and not a frying pan." I had a good laugh at that moment!

Seriously though, once I let it shine through that I do earn a mile or two occasionally, he was determined to sign me up for FB. I resisted for now, but asked about a possible status match for STC Elites. His answer: "Given the current situation for Swiss Elite members, KLM/Air France would definitely inclined to consider this." So there. If anyone needs a FB status match, this might be a good time to talk to the AF or KL sales offices in Switzerland.
