Is there a list of airports at which Oneworld Priority fast-track security is available? I'm flying AY J on flights via YYZ, HEL, HKG, BKK, and LHR, with Sapphire on the outbound and possibly Emerald on the inbound.

Also, any Oneworld or AY lounges at those airports that are particularly good? Thanks.

Priority immigration/security departing Bangkok is based on cabin only, not status. A J boarding pass will get you in. If it's open the CX lounge there is my favorite.

HKG has no priority security. I like The Wing there.

Have never tried it but the signs on Bangkok priority immigration also states "seniors" which I think in this case is over 70

Happy wandering (if your are a senior)

Connecting Flight lounge access Royal Jordanian

Hi, I am flying tomorrow with Royal Jordanian from Heathrow to Bangkok Via Amman. I've won the bid to upgrade the AMM-BKK (longer) leg to Business/Crown Class, but the LHR-AMM is economy. Will I be able to access the lounge before my flight in Heathrow because the "main" leg of the flight is business?

Thanks

It looks like LHR-AMM is just over 5 hours, so technically no, as the cut-off is 5 hours. You can try though, but I have no experience with RJ.

Given that the flight was 2 days ago, I guess the only useful post would be from @keaner2 regarding whether they got the access or not.

Access on Arrival

Hi,
I've secured an upgrade to J on AA 125 (DFW-HKG) for my mom and myself, and once we arrive in HKG, we transfer onto a CX flight to SGN leaving about 4 hours later, on a separate ticket in Y.
I was wondering if we can use the CX lounge in HKG with our AA J boarding passes? (If it matters the AA flight lands the day after it departs)
I am only OW Ruby so I cannot use the CX J lounge otherwise.
Thanks!

You should have access in HKG on the basis of your J ticket on DFW-HKG and connection to a oneworld carrier. Make sure to keep your DFW-HKG boarding pass.

Hi, just spotted the newbie thread, so will try to delete my other posting

I am on the RGN-BKK-CMB single Business Class flights on 20 October 2019 (as a first leg) and CMB-LHR 5 days later

My times were fairly good, RGN-BKK 16:30-18:15 (UL3301 or 8M331) connecting onto the BKK-CMB (UL407) 20:25-22:15

I have been emailed to say the UL3301 was 'cancelled' and that asked to confirm if the 07:40-09:25 (UL3307) would be okay? That's would mean a 11-hour lay-over in Bangkok

It would appear also that Myanmar Airlines International which is providing the RGN-BKK is continuing to operate the 16:30 flight, as being bookable on their own website.

What are my rights here? Could I argue for a change to the airline operating the RGN-BKK leg, such as the Bangkok Airways 15:20 departure (PG708) or am I pretty much stuck accepting what Sri Lankan says, the 07:40!!!

Cheers to the collective

Generally speaking, the ticketing or marketing airline is required to offer you a choice of alternative flights or a full refund. In practice, the degree of flexibility seems to differ a lot based on the airline in question and who caused the problem. In your case, if I understand, you were booked on a UL (Sri Lankan) code operated by 8M (Myanmar) RGN-BKK, connecting to a UL prime BKK-CMB flight, and the UL code on your 8M flight is no longer offered. Checking EF, I don't see a UL code on the 16:30 flight for any days around the 20th, but I do see it on the 07:40 flight, which explains why UL offered you that option. if you bought your ticket from UL, I would call them; if you booked via a travel agent, call them. Make your case that the 07:40 flight is not acceptable, and ask to be reaccomodated on the 8M prime flight at your original 16:30 time, or failing that, another flight close to the same time.

Im traveling on QR J between HKG and DOH. I am a QR Platinum member (OWE). My friend is traveling from HKG to MEL at a similar time on CX Y. Would I be able to get him as a guest into the Pier or Wing First Class Lounge at HKG? Thanks!
