Elite Status TALT Basic Econ & Star Alliance Gold benefits

    I found some great flights to Europe for New Years that are basic economy. They would be ticketed by United but on Lufthansa and Swiss metal. With Star Alliance Gold status, I should be able to select seats in advance, right? I've had trouble with getting LH seats on codeshares before and I want to make sure this isn't going to be a problem. I can imagine LH isn't happy about UAL basic economy tickets so I want to check for any incompatibility beforehand.

    Otherwise, Golds are still allowed free checked bags and lounge access (regular, not Polaris clearly) regardless of ticket class, correct?
