TAP: Lounge access in Brazil for Star Gold?

Hi all,

I'm Star Alliance Gold (United), and will be flying TAP Portgal from LGW - Belem, Brazil and back on economy S class. I have a long layover in Recife (REC) on the way back, and TAP has a relationship with the Proair lounge there (http://www.flytap.com/USA/enus/Infor...irport/lounges). It looks as if only TAP corporate card holders have access to it, but I thought I'd ask the experts.

Anyone know if I'll be able to get access with my Star Gold? If not, any suggestions for acquiring cheap access through other means?

Thanks!

Allie

As a *G, TP should issue you (and your +1 if you have one) an invitation to the Proair lounge.

Thanks Palal, much appreciated. One followup: is that generally something I should ask for in the airport once I arrive, or something to be arranged beforehand?

It's something you will probably get either at the check-in counter, or, since you're a connecting passenger, maybe even at the lounge itself. It depends on the airport setup.
