You're right - but there must be an error in that tool. I did the same search for IAD and EWR and it also says no lounges, but I've definitely used TK, LH, and UA lounges with my TAP Star Gold while flying economy.

Took a couple flights out of LIS within two days last weekend. I was able to visit the TAP Premium Lounge on Sunday 10/24





Food service was from a cafeteria style line. They had eggs and bacon, quiche, pastries. They also served all the beverages.

I also had a Monday 7:30 AM flight but annoyingly the TAP Lounge doesn't open until 7 AM so I went to the ANA Lounge using my Priority Pass





The lounge is even bigger than the TP Lounge with lots of different style seating





Soft drinks are self service though coffee and liquor are at a service counter



Food was limited to sandwiches, cold cuts, rolls and pastries but at least they were open.

When you say AZA, do you mean ANA? Or is AZA yet another lounge?

Sorry, I'm not a local, and have to pick between TAP and ANA for Friday late morning. I'd like to get some warm food, and ANA lounges in Japan have been very nice - but your pictures tell me otherwise. Now I'm a little confused. :-)

That post means ANA not AZA. However, note that this ANA is not related to the ANA in Japan. Totally different company with just the same acronym.

The two lounges are next to each other, so it's easy to visit both. The Tap Lounge is the one that has hot food options.

It's ANA indeed, but not the Japanese airline. It means Aeroportos e Navegao Area and it's the name of the company that manages airports in Portugal.

OMG! How confusing. Thank you to both who cleared that up for me.

I googled the lounges at LIS and found a TAP and an ANA lounge. Made me wonder a little, but not enough to check if ANA actually flies to LIS. :-)

Sorry about that I did indeed mean ANA. I'll correct my post.

By the way, for the majority of Star Alliance carriers, the marketing carrier has no effect on lounge access. It's the operating carrier that matters which in this case is TAP Portugal.
Although, if you were flying on LH metal, as the TAP Lounge is also considered as a *G lounge, you would be admitted in with your TK*G card.
Does anyone know if, or when, the lounge at FNC will re-open?

i ask as that is the Priority Pass lounge, and their website is saying it is still closed (I'll be travelling there in early Oct/22)

Thanks

when you say "was", does that mean it is no longer accessible??

The spaces where the lounges were located have been emptied. My guess is they won't return any time soon.

Sorry to trouble people, but which lounges in terminal 2 are open for passengers with elite status flying paid C on UA? Is the Turkish lounge near the gates or the ANA or TAP lounges open and near the gates? Thanks. Which would be the best (Turkish would likely be if available I would guess). Thanks.
