Flying AQU-CAI in J next week. Layover in Amman for 8 hours. Free lounge access? Just did the seat selection and it came up as an option to pay.

Free access in AMM (there is no lounge in AQJ). The pay for option is for Y class pax and should not really be displayed to J cl pax.

Yes, I thought it was strange paying double the price then being asked to pay 43JOD for lounge access for 4 hours.

Thank you!

I'm trying to earn miles with my last RJ tix, Fare Q. For sure, this is nothing to talk about, but IB should credit these.
Unfortunately, IB does not offer the airline code from RJ, but all the other ones.
Trying to enter a corresponding AA codeshare did not work.

Do you have any suggestions? (keeping in mind the really miserable IB CS).

You'll need to credit as per your ticket (if you didn't book as a codeshare, then you can't claim as a codeshare).

BA allows RJ Q class, so if you have a BAEC account you can retroclaim there, then transfer the Avios over to IB. If you don't already have a BA account, then you can't do this.

Unfortunately, I dont't have an existing BA-Account, so this Option won't work out.
Any suggestions for IB itself? I wonder whether I am the first person who want's to claim miles on that booking class. Or truly, I am?

That's what I do all the time. RJ check-in @Kowloon/Hong Kong opens at 8AM.

If it's not in the earning chart, then it won't earn Avios, no matter how many people want to claim miles for that booking class.

That's the problem, it IS in the earning chart. Online it is not applicable to enter...

In that case you should e-mail Iberia Plus.

Had a 7 hour layover in AMM. At RJ lounge they told me that lounge access is limited to 3 hours only. I was so speechless that they then said that this one time I can get in for more hours.
I was transiting on 2 separate tickets so they may though that I started my journey at AMM and come especially early.
Anyone had a similar experience?

Was access based on class of travel or with Priority Pass or similar? Last time I stayed in the AMM lounge, travelling in J, I would be staying well over 5 hours and I wasn’t made aware of any time limit.
