FB Gold Third Party Lounge

Hello,

I will become Gold in a couple of months, and want to prepare what I can expect as a FB Gold. I understand FB Gold gives access to SkyTeam airline branded lounges when flying on a SkyTeam airline, but how about third party lounges? I travel a lot from DUS and BRU, will access be granted there if flying on KL, AF or DL? (I understand that it sometimes depends on airline)

I have searched everywhere online, but I can't seem to find any list that shows what passengers have access to different lounges.

Thank you all!

You will have access :
- to all lounges (whether they are AF/KL/Skyteam/partners/3rd party) when flying AF/KL domestic or international
- to Skyteam lounges/Skyteam partners lounges when flying a Skyteam airline internationally or domestic when in same-day connection to/from int’l

Sometimes, you don’t have access to 3rd party lounges when flying another Skyteam airline (in Y), but there are many cases where it works, so it worths to try.

Thank you! Will one guest be allowed also at 3rd party lounges?

It depends. Hit and miss but definitely try.

May I ask if this is a published benefit as a FB gold/plat for AF domestic flight without same-day international connection?

Yes, there is no restriction for AF/A5 domestic flights fro FB members. And if there were some, there would be no AF lounge in ORY Hall 2, BOD, LYS, etc

Indeed thank you! I had a doubt, looking into AF lounge access policy, specifying economy and FB gold or plat or ST E+, the info is the same "You can enjoy any one of the 530 Air France and SkyTeam lounges when you travel on an international flight with AIR FRANCE, KLM or SkyTeam". It would not make much sense for them to have lounges at ORY, LYS etc. except for people connecting in Paris (or Nice) to a same-day international flight.. Although that would be very restrictive indeed.

There are international flights from those airports as well, though probably not mainline.
Either way I think that is to mean that you are guaranteed a lounge on international flights, but not always on domestic, so they word it like this.

In DUS you have access to the Hugo-Junkers-Lounge with FB Gold. In BRU I don't know.

Indeed the beers more than make up for the otherwise drab look of the lounge
