Chase Explorer cc UAL lounge question

The Explorer card "gifts" 2 UAL lounge passes annually.

Are these usable at partner lounges, or just at UAL lounges? I've a long connection at CDG.

Thanks!

Transportation to the new Istanbul Airport

I've heard that the city Metro does not (yet) connect the new airport; however, aside from taxis, what other methods are there? I'll be going to the Taksim Square area.

Thanks
