In November my wife flew TK IAD-IST in Y (award ticket), and as a *G (UA Plat) she was given access to the VS Lounge. She was connecting in IAD, and was given the invitation upon arrival at the TK gate. (Sadly, she spent the previous hour sitting in one of the UC's in the C/D concourse!)

I'm doing the same next month, looking forward to the VS lounge!

About 3 years ago, I was flying Qatar Airways IAD-DOH, and again, at the gate, I was given an invitation to the VS lounge on the strength of my UA 1K status, even though QR isn't a part of *A. Nice gesture on the part of the QR staff, I must say.

As for the VS lounge, all I can say is wow.
