Just booked a holiday for the 6 of us. Meets all the criteria for free lounge access (over £1000 each per adult etc). BUT the infant and child bring the average price down. I can see in the T&Cs that infants dont count in the calculation. But what about children? I could have split this booking into 2 to absolutely gaurantee lounge access (as only actually need one booking for 2 ppls to be eligible) but didn't to avoid an extra transaction.

Now worried that won't be able to get the family in due to technicality that could have been avoided by me splitting booking. Is there any way to tell from the booking if Lounge access has been triggered?
For that Iíd call BAH and ask the, to clarify. Strictly speaking you donít meet the T&C and if you say no and the pricing is still the same if you say ok, well Iíll cancel and rebook if you are within the 24 hour cooling off as that will be a lot of admin for them when they could just say yes. Unfortunately if you take a FTV that will need to be used by the pax named in the booking so you wouldnít be able to split it.
