There have been several posts on this and most find it is difficult to get admitted to the BA club unless you are on BA.
This is par for the course there. I've been admitted, but several times had to basically stand my ground and call them out on their BS.

Yet another arrow in PHL's endless quiver of excellence.

Yeah, i've been given a lot of BS even when I do stand my ground. I wrote toBA over the summer who did apologize and note I was correct. The service recovery (I did not ask for any) was some money off a future BA flight, which is useless, but hey at least they know the agents go rogue daily in that lounge now. Now I just laugh and go to the Centurion, but it has become sort of a game, "can we get in today?"
