Elite Status Status matched to OW Sapphire from Delta Gold. Deployed benefits?

    Ben--Thanks to you (and AirBerlin) I was matched to OW Sapphire from Delta Gold. So far so good.
    My question is about understanding whether that status automatically "deploys" to all OneWorld carriers, or do I have to have bookings credited to my AirBerlin FF number when I book in order to take advantage of benefits such as seats/baggage/boarding? Is it enough just to flash my AB card when I show up at check-in at the airport?
    Thanks & Happy Birthday!

    @ TOM -- Thanks! Showing the card should be enough for lounge access and all the other benefits, though if you want to make seats, etc., easy, you can just add your airberlin number to the reservation at the time of booking, so you get all the perks. Then when you get to the gate just ask to change the frequent flyer number to wherever you want to credit your flight.
