Of course - CA is very good with providing all published *G benefits. Just do not expect too much from CA domestic lounges (if memory serves there are 2 in each part of T3)...

Thanks.

I was asking because recently on MU domestic I was told no lounge access in spite of my Flying Blue Gold status.

Despite the fact that there has never ever been a Swissair *A gold status, yes. The LX SEN will bring you in.

Scarry Team does not offer access to lounges on domestic itineraries for E+ members, *A does for Golds.

Two quick follow-ups:

Does CA domestic have a dedicated first class check in for domestic?

I'm unable to check in online via AirChina. My booking doesn't contain my StarAlliance frequent flyer number so they don't know yet I'm Gold. What are my chances of not being allocated to 67E or any other horrible middle seat? I presume close to 0...

Once you checkin with CA they will put you in the front of the Y cabin or the EE, my requests were always taken care of.

Actually, I was bumped up to Premium Economy at the Gold checkin and had probably the best non J seat of the plane.
