The strict answer is no (unless your MAN-LHR is a full Y ticket), following a recent revision to the *A Lounge access policy http://www.staralliance.com/en/trave...ss-policy.html

An extract from the rules;-

"International First Class Customers: Customers have access to International First Class and/or any Star Alliance member carriers' own lounges.

* Customer must present a boarding card for the same day travel in international First Class on a Star Alliance flight
* Customer must be departing from the local airport in International First Class
* Customer is entitled to one guest"

As bmi goldenboy observes, you may well be OK.....certainly worth the try.
