Sapphire guest experience with separate booking

I have an upcoming trip where I will be accompanying my mother ex-LHR but we will be on separate bookings. I am Oneworld Sapphire (via AA). I know I can guest her into the Lounge as I have done that before with other travelling companions, but I have a question about the other Sapphire airport privileges. Will I be able to guest her for:

> Check-in at the CW desks (we are both flying Y)
> FastTrack Security
> Boarding in the same group as me

I've seen some threads focused on BA Silver which imply the answer is yes, but nothing is published on any website that I can find so was curious if anyone knew based on recent experience.

My experience has always been yes to all of those.

My experience is also yes, but I do usually ask to be on the safe side.

We had a similar situation this year, travelling with family members. I called BA and linked our PNR's even though the first and last sectors were different to ours. They even put in a request for seats on the long haul sector free of charge so we were sitting together.

And another; yes to all of those in my experience, both with family members and colleagues.

Call BA and ask them to link your bookings which they're normally more than happy to do. Alternatively ask at check-in if you MIL can be given the same boarding group.

All the other things it's a flat yes straight out of the box
