IMHO it also makes no sense for a German baaser airline to provide special benefits to somebody who mainly flies PHL to SFO.

Its no different from SQ or NZ or NH or ... not counting for HON. It would be nice if they were included (in which case I'd qualify) but I can understand why miles & more doesnt include them.

No vouchers given out for such a bought one-year prolongation of SEN status.

My two children age 10 and 12, also got last week an invitation for 1.500 Eur. to extend their SEN status. My wife did not get it. All 3 are ending 2/2006 their SEN status. The children now already got the silver card until 02/2008. My wife got nothing.
Not that I need it, ( we are all * gold with BD until summer 2007 already ), and in summer 06 we do a nice ex TIP trip in F which generates again gold until summer 2008 and enough miles for the next F award, but curious with LH, who gets the mail and who not.

I don't mainly fly PHL SFO, but mostly PHL FRA BLR SHA and NRT etc. and round the world. Let me know when there is any LH flight crossing the Pacific in any direction...Maybe AUA does it ;-) ?

Nope. *A airlines with transpac flights are

UA
NH
OZ
SQ
TG
NZ
I'm not 100% sure if RG still does or not (used to have LAX-NRT)

Have to add OZ (Asiana) to Kiwi's list. They're flying to 5 destinations in the US from Seoul (Incheon).

FAQs: Stopover and lounge access
 
As the rules change so often and I lost the overview, I have two questions:

- Stopover: WAW-FRA-KIX - PVG - HKG-ZRH-WAW.
Is the intended stopover in PVG allowed?

- Lounge access for SEN: What are the official rules?
Are we still entitled to bring in a guest or not?
Are we still allowed to use the lounges when flying a non * carrier?

Yes can use any LH-operated lounge (assuming you have access to the relevant part of the terminal and lounge is open) regardless of who flying with, or even if not flying at all.

Can bring a guest who must be flying same-day departing flight on *A (or in case of LH-operated lounges an M&M partner).

As always, subject to availability (eg can be denied due to space issues).

Hi, Kiwi Flyer,
are you sure? Ive got the impression that a SEN can (always) bring a guest to LH-lounge whether the guest is flying *A or not.

http://www.lufthansa.com/online/port...&nodeid=780671

At the "official" Lounge site it is stated that a SEN needs simply the SEN card to enter. And it is stated:

"Senators, Frequent Travellers and Star Gold cardholders are entitled to take one guest each into their lounge."

Thus: No further requirements for the guest, in my opinion.

Hans Dampf Jan 26, 06 4:57 am

i also thought that sen's can bring in one guest and use the lounges regardless of the carrier they are flying with.

however, recently in berlin, they refused me to use the lounge because i did not fly * :confused:



same situation with the stop over that i asked a few posts before: once i get the stop over, on another time they refuse to give it... :confused:

Unfortunately not.

A few days ago I was on a one day trip to VIE with Germanwings. I was finished earlier as expected and so I had to wait 2 hours at the airport. I wanted to enter the SEN Lounge, presented my SEN Card. The lady asked for my bording pass. I told her that I do not fly with them and she kicked me out. She told me that the rules have changed and I need a *A Ticket to enter.
