Except for DFW, all the FLs share a reception desk with a colocated AC. Or are you asking if they check ID again once you get upstairs?

And JFK, although it's a whole different situation with the joint BA lounges.

I wonder if there are more shenanigans now that they have increased the price of membership? That could be a reason for the increased vigilance.

Visited the DCA E club again this morning, no ID check. Was asked for my ID at the LGA club this afternoon.

DFW D agent told me today that even if your photo is linked to your club account membership they still need to ask for physical photo ID. So stupid.

Wonder what caused this?

Sneaking into an AC is like the lowest possible value add action anyone could take.

I'm used to DFW so I was just thinking about that one, I forgot they share a desk at ORD, MIA, LAX.

Probably to prevent people from a Tiktokker advertising "an amazing travel hack"

Got carded at the PHL lounge today.

If TT were the source, the solution is even more simple. They'd only need card those who look younger than 30.
