CDG - United Premier Access/Security or FastTrack

Does anyone know whether or not United's Premier Access/Security, etc. allows someone to "FastTrack" through the security/immigration lines? SkyPriority (http://bit.ly/2ufnlT3) does, but not sure if United has something at CDG.

Ditto!!! I really should have asked about it during check-in. Would have saved me a ton of time at passport control. No line at gate security, so wouldn't have mattered there, but a really long (and hot) wait in the passport line. I should have known better. Luggage did get tagged correctly, no issue there.

Ask for "Access one" at check in. They will give you a stub or you may find the "Access one" logo printed on your boarding pass. This access is good for police control as well as for security which is close to the gate in the satellite.

United does offer Access One @ CDG. They just added that to our boarding passes. We were flying J class, so I am not sure if they do that voluntarily for Gold/Platinum/1K members of United.

Is Access One a certain thing for UA Gold (flying Y) at CDG? They've volunteered lounge info in the past, but I haven't been given an Access One card since "falling" to Gold (from Plat). If I ask, I'll get one? Thanks!

Hi Mike Jacoubowsky
I don't know what is the Access One card you are referring to in this post (and in some others you just posted). Accès No1 (Access One in English) is the generic term used by ADP for their priority lanes at security and immigration. Of course ADP charges the airlines for the service and so it is up to them to pay and give access to some of their pax. They can choose from no access at all (if they don't want to pay), to access for only J and P pax, or to J, P and all Elite plus status pax for instance. And then this information is normally encrypted in the bar code of your BP. When it is scanned, the agent who is controlling the access knows if you are eligible or not.
This being said, I don't know if UA Gold flying Y is eligible. You may have more chance asking the question in the UA forum.

Star alliance website says look for access one. I'm flying to CDG on UA this week and curious to know what access I will have as star gold (UA Platinum) for entry and departure immigration and security. Does anyone have any first-hand information of recent. Thanks

I should have gotten back to this thread earlier. Last July, leaving CDG, the agent applied the Access 1 status to the boarding pass for both myself (*G) and my son (GM) when we checked in together for our return flight. There was no separate card; it was encoded on the ticket. Definitely a huge help at passport control upon leaving.

Since the access 1 seems to be embedded in the barcode of the boarding pass, would you be able to access with online check-in without seeing an agent in the in lobby??

Likely yes; wished I'd saved the ticket but I believe it mentioned it. However, on-line check-in wouldn't have gotten my son's ticked similarly endowed.

I can confirm yes; have done so three times in the last six months as a UA Plat/*Gold.

I Just checked in for a flight out of CDG as * gold. I don't see any access one logo on the boarding pass (As I thought someone mentioned in the thread before but I'm unsure). is it just in bedded in the barcode and there's no separate indicator on the pass?
