DL will give you status for 3 months, but if you meet the status challenge PQM/PQD requirements you'll keep it for the whole year.
Can you choose when the temp status and 90 day accrual period starts?

No, as soon as you apply and are accepted for the challenge the clock starts ticking

I recently did this challenge due to having some long haul flights on AF which would have got me very near the qualification, but for some reason the flown miles didn't even post to my DL account despite being in a full earning fare bucket

Hmmm, I'll be in a similar situation...

My current status ends Feb 28. So I was planning on applying ~ Feb 21. I have a long haul flight mid May, returning June 1st. This will qualify me for the challenge... I hope that DL will see when I actually fly and count them.

Regarding needing proof that I got my status the regular way... I got my status due to my flights in 2017... I am not sure how to get that data from AC's Altittude program, but I'll see.

Delta isn't the best at crediting partner miles. I had to contact them to get all my Aeroflot flights from this past summer credited, even though my SkyMiles # was on all of them.

Will United MileagePlus status benefit me at all for a flight I purchased using MileagePlus points? Or does United ignore status for award flights?

Separately, has anyone had any luck leveraging status with Delta SkyMiles for obtaining status with with ANA Mileage Club?

All status benefits apply regardless of being a revenue or award ticket.

ANA does not match status (no Japanese carrier does).

Except hilariously they matched IHG elites to ANA Platinum status. Kind of shocking that that is the one program they would match...

Hahaha. I know right. They refused to match me though so maybe not everyone. But you’re right

Perhaps because ANA and IHG operate a joint lodging venture:

InterContinental Hotels Group is the world's largest hotel group by number of rooms. In Japan, IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan, a joint venture between IHG and ANA (All Nippon Airways) commenced operations on 1 December 2006 it is now the largest international hotel operator in Japan.

InterContinental branded hotels are located in Tokyo, Yokohama, Manza Beach and Ishigaki Resort in Okinawa. ANA Crowne Plaza branded hotels are located in main cities such as Chitose, Niigata, Toyama, Kanazawa, Narita, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Okinawa. In July 2010, the first ANA Holiday Inn opened in Sendai. IHG's portfolio in Japan continues to expand.

Anyone with any info on Cathay Pacific - Asia Miles status matching? Statusmatcher seems to point to recent successes.

They seem to match to Silver if you have a CX flight in the past 12 months.

Delta match for 2019?

Any ideas if Delta will extend status to Jan 2021 with matches completed July to December of this year, similar to what they did for matches that completed July to December of last year?

That's how it usually is if you match after July.

Not fully true.
In general they don't, but there are many case-by-case exceptions
