If you have Silver Elite membership with DL, what if any privileges do you get with CO?
Thanks,
Steven

Continental's website is silent as to how DL Medallions are treated. DL's web guru should be taken out and whipped - there is no readily found information about Medallion benefits on partner carriers other than mileage accrual.

The skyteam website gives an outline of how skyteam elite members are treated on partner airlines, this should give you a guide:

Since DL and CO are both members of SkyTeam, DL Silver and Gold Medallions should as SkyTeam Elites receive the following when travelling on CO:

Priority Check-In - Dedicated check-in at SkyTeam partner positions
Priority Boarding - Advance boarding where available
Priority Reservation Waitlist Priority - Priority waitlist status
Priority Airport Standby - Priority placement on a partner’s standby list
Preferred Economy Class Seating - Subject to availability, we will always attempt to accommodate your seating preference

EDIT: There are 3 friends traveling with me on DL next month, do you think they will let us all board with my elite status or not?

No upgrades - standby to get on a flight - for example, if you are standing-by to get on an earlier flight or if the plane is full, you will probably get priority on the waiting list.

I thought the guaranteed booking on full flights was only for full Y fares on CO. Don't know about DL's policy.

Quoting WhiskeyHotel (Reply 7):

Weird how DL does not inform Medallion members of Elite Cross Privileges... The one I know is: DL Elites get free upgrades to AM "J" and AM Elites get free upgrades to DL "F" (subject to availability at the airport) on MEX-ATL and MEX-JFK flights (both airlines have daily flights between these markets).
