While I know it's possible, for instaince, to earn DL miles (and even Medallion miles) when flying on partner airlines such as Northwest and Continental, what kind of FF *benefits* can you get while flying on those partner airlines?
For instance, if you're a silver/gold/platinum DL flier, can you use the "short" security lines, and get priority boarding/seating with the partner airline, like you do on a regular Delta flight?
Also, if the flight is ticketed on the partner airline (ie: not a Delta codeshare) can you access online items @ the airline's website ?
Example in question, specifically, is DL Gold, flying on Northwest.

Star Alliance Gold holders for example can get use of lounges on *A airlines, use of Fast Track security (at some locations and success rate varies), increased FF mileage earnt, priority handling, increased chance of upgrade after indigenous elites
