Air India Lounge - IAD?

Apologize if this has been asked before - does AI have a lounge in IAD?
Thanks,
D

AI uses *G lounges.

But I don't believe AI has its own lounge in IAD.

Ok, thank you.For some reason, I thought there would be NO lounge access. Looks like there will be a lounge at least...

Air India being a *A carrier allows you to use any of the *A lounges in IAD (Turkish, Lufthansa or United Club) on the day of departure if you are in Buiness/Executive class or have Gold status.

So when I check in - I will get the lounge access when I check in? And will they give me the option as to which lounge to go to?

Assuming you are qualified, you can choose whatever you want, assuming they are open at that time.

Your boarding pass bearing either class of travel (business/first) or your Star Gold status is sufficient to access any Star Alliance lounges open at that time, even without a dedicated lounge invitation at check-in.

All the AI checkin agent will probably do is advise you that a certain lounge is closer to your gate.

At checkin they give you a lounge pass to Turkish Lounge (if you are flying J/F). The last time I used Turkish lounge, they asked me to give them the lounge pass AI gave me while checking in, even though I am *G.


if you have *G, you can use LH Sen lounge that is located close to the Turkish lounge.
