LH / SAA M&M Lounge Question

Thu Jun 01, 2006 5:35 am

Hi, I have a question about the lounge acces.
I looked on the LH site but its so slow, and I couldnt really find it so I thought I ask it here:

After being a LH Senator for many years, my father has been downgraded earlier this year. Like my mother, he's a LH Frequent Traveller now.

When they came down to Cape Town this weekend, I noticed they did not have priority tags on their bags. Of course they only noticed this because I asked about it  Smile

When did they chance this? Or maybe they simply forgot at the checkin? Can I still get into the LH/SAA lounge with them?

Thanks for any input,

Ben

LH FTL is essentially Star Silver - and it sucks.

If they're flying LH, and there's an LH FTL or business lounge, that's the only kind of lounge they can access. If they're flying SA or there's a Star Alliance lounge - those are typically only available to *Gold customers (LH Senator). This might be a good time for them to look at another *A program, since most of the other *A programs get you to gold status by 50K miles, compared to LH's 160K (or something similar) needed for gold.

Thanks for the information Mr Nimish.

They are flying/booked LH CPT-FRA which is operated by SAA.

So LH FTL has no access to a SAA business lounge?

Hey,

I cant tell you about the lounge access but you are right about the priority tags. Only C-Class, F-Class, SEN's and HON's get priority tags...

cheers,
chris

Nope - though on the return, they might have access to LH's FTL and Business lounge in FRA airport. Even that is tricky if the boarding pass does not have a LH flight number (which it won't if its SAA that's operating the flight)

CPT-FRA is their return flight. When they came down they got into the LH FTL Lounge without problems.

Can Lh FTL's invite a friend into the lounge?
