What airlines allow their employees to use their lounges when the employees are traveling on their non-rev benefits?
-Note this question assumes that the employee has paid all necessary membership fees.

Delta does as long as the employee purchases a SkyClub membership.

I know at AA there is a specific lounge for non-revs that's free for them to use at DFW, not sure if they have the same thing at ORD or MIA though.

Yes there is a simple loung here in MIA and in ORD. AA does not let employees into the lounge period. No matter how much you want to pay or the $50 day pass etc.

True but at smaller airports and during dead times, AC let's non-rev's in. An example is when I frequently take the 5am YWG-YYZ flight. I walk into the lounge and the lounge agent sees my boarding pass with the C2 designator (one AC non-rev status) and simply says, "help yourself to a cup of coffee and a copy of todays paper and do take note that your flight boards in 15 minutes."

This is NOT a published rule and only AC non-rev's know about it's existance. I'm sure for other airlines around the world, there are certain unpublished rules that only employees or employee families (non-rev's) know about... Therefore this is a matter purely based on insider information because the general rule (for all airlines I believe) is that non-rev's are NOT allowed in the airline lounges designated for revenue pax.

Officially: none. As stated, AA has dedicated non-rev "break rooms", if you will, but that's it.

That's not to say it doesn't ever happen, but it's against policy and could potentially get both parties in trouble.

I'm not sure what will happen in the future, but CO allows access to the President's Clubs to President's Club members, even if you are NOT flying. Also, if you have a Business/First boarding pass with seat assignment, you will be allowed in.

I have had no problem with UA club entry as long as I have a boarding pass and my PC card when flying non-rev.

As stated above AA doesn't allow employees in. However, they do have non-rev lounges in DFW, JFK, LAX, LGA, MIA, ORD, and TUS.

Lol, yes some are reminiscent of break rooms but I have to admit the ones in DFW and ORD are quite nice.

Thanks guys, I assume to get into the AA lounge you must you show your ticket and membership card?
-What if you where already assigned a seat?
-Do your tickets always say NRSA or does it pop up on the agents computer that you are an employee?
-What are in the non-rev lounges? I would assume computer, soda machine and chairs.
-Finally are these non-rev lunges only for AA employees?

AA NRSA lounges are for AA employees and their non-rev guests (whether the employee is present or not). I've used the NRSA lounges dozens of times and I've never been asked to show a ticket or identification. The lounges are very informal, 99% of the time there aren't any AA employees staffed and working in there. All of the lounges have computers with jetnet & SABRE as well as vending machines, couches, and chairs. The JFK (ORD?) one has a private bathroom and kitchen area. Anyway, the lounges are great when traveling and I applaud AA for creating them.
