Question: When travelling to europe on AA(business class) and connecting on a Swiss codeshare flight onto another destination, are you granted access to the Swiss Airport lounge?

This is one of those areas where solid information is very hard to come by.

Yes, just show the Swiss representative your boarding card at the entry to the lounge.

If you have a LX flightnumer no problem. But if you are travelling on an AA flightnumber (on a Swiss a/c) businessclass, I think you can't go to the Swiss Lounge in Terminal A...so you need to go to Terminal B where AA shares a lounge with some other airlines.

I'm not 100% sure about this.

I have used the lounge there several times and i do recall people with AA boarding passes coming there too.....they keep changing the policies regarding their lounge access but i do think you should be OK...you should definately go there and see...getting there is not much of a hassle and its in the middle of the terminal.....you just have to climb up those circular stairs..... the lounge itself,although better then being elsewhere in the airport....is nothing special itself...the drinks selection is probably the best thing there...they have a smoking section there and they also have internet access...the views are nothing special, alot of is blocked by other parts of the airport....
Good luck

Considering AA doesn't have an Admiral's Club in ZRH, it really is in the best interest of Swiss & the codeshare to admit business/first travellers to their club.

I'll give it a shot and see if they let us in.. Should be interesting. I've got a 4 hour layover until my connecting flight. I'd like to use the time to take a shower and jump on the internet and catch up. DFW-ZRH is a relatively long flight as it is.. I'd sure hate to be stuck trying to find something to do for all that time in ZRH.

If you're connecting flight is business then I assume there is no problem. However if your connecting flight is economy and you dont have any elite status with AA or Swiss then i dont think they will give you access.

It's actually a reward ticket.. Upgrade from coach.

Not elite status however.

Yes your connecting flight is what matters here since you dont have elite status....is that J or Y?

It's a business class seat.. upgraded from a coach fare. Not certain what my fare code is, but I believe it's W.
