Status on award ticket

I have bought an award ticket for my uncle when we travel together later this month, I had thought that the only thing he would get was my luggage allowance. However today I saw on his ticket (on the app) that it includes lounge access in AMS and gives his status as Gold, does this mean that he will get an SP boarding card to use at security ?

Yes, anyone travelling on an award ticket purchased with miles of a status holder will receive all benefits that that status holder is entitled to.

Note that at contract lounges you may not get access.

Also, be aware of cases when KL/AF (and probably DL) is not the carrier. From own experience, the luggage allowance does not transfer to other skyteam members and/or codeshares.

Thanks, flights are KL only and at STR he can go in lounge as my guest. Being able to go through the nice quiet priority security(STR) is a bonus
