Does any ST member offer direct status match ( 2019 )

I am wondering if any of the SkyTeam members offer direct status match at this time ( not challenge ). I hold Oneworld Sapphire ( BA Silver ) and Star Alliance Gold ( TK Elite ) status's and I usually fly transatlantic on BA or LH-group and several short-haul flights with TK but I might switch to the AF/KL group and SU for transatlantic's and European flights because of their super low prices in all travel classes. For the moment I only have a KE account which most promo fares on non-KE partners give 0 miles. It would be easy to achieve Flying Blue Gold by flying 2 times by IST-CDG-AMS-OtherEuropeanDestination r/t in J for a 599 ( or less ) ticket ( Z fare class ) each but if there is a direct status match it would be easy for me.

So, what program you could suggest to me? Should I start collecting miles with FB or should I directly match status with an airline that offers? Thanks for your advice in advance.

Btw, if there is a status match thread, moderators, please close this thread and place my post into that thread. Thank you.

If you intend to fly mostly AFKL, get Flying Blue, otherwise take DL Challenge https://www.delta.com/content/www/en...challenge.html

Thanks for this advise. It would be a difficult choice for me. Probably, I'll wait until my first next SkyTeam flight to decide.
