Lounge access at SFO

Hi all,

I will be flying AB SFO-DUS in J early next month. Flight departs 8:15 p.m.

It appears I will have access to the Air France and British Airways lounges at SFO, as AF is a designated partner, and BA/AB are both in oneworld. Has anyone visited either lounge around 6 p.m.? How do the amenities compare?

Hi cactusfan,

The BA lounge is fairly small but adequate and has sandwiches and snacks and alcohol.

I suspect that at about 6pm the lounge will be getting very busy as the 1930 BA flight is an A380 on some days and the lounge was not designed for that many people.

You may get asked to to the AF lounge anyway ( capacity issues) but the AF lounge is likely to be quieter anyway.

The SFO BA lounge is due to be expanded but there is no timescale.



PS There is also the Cathay Pacific lounge in the terminal ( which as an AA Exec Plat you should be able to get in) but from;


It does not look like it is open at that time

Given that the other OW lounges are closed (CX opens after 9 pm/ JL closes by 3 pm), you're left with the BA lounge which isn't worth writing home about. They have drinks and snacks, but that's about it.

Be aware that status and premium passengers on the BA afternoon flight usually board from the lounge making it quite noisy. With the A380 flight in the evening it gets rather busy as well.
