but this is most probably offered to TAP biz passengers only right? Star Alliance *G in eco will get nothing since no SA lounge opened.

TP Gold, on cheap Y ticket. But you're right: *G probably gets nothing. I think the lounge there is permanently closed.

I wanted to check in anyone may have an update on the FNC lounge? I will by flying out April 8th early morning (Priority Pass) and was hoping they may have reopened.

Thanks!

Any news on lounges in FNC and Azores? ANA lists several lounges for Madeira on its website...

I can only say the TAP lounge at FNC was closed when I was there on April 8th.

As gojko88 mentioned, it's indeed LH's lounge. You can find the list of lounges TP uses here and browse it here.

Update on the FNC lounges as I was there recently:
  • The TP lounge is closed forever.
  • The airport operator (ANA) opened a new lounge with a nice interior but a basic cold buffet even inferior to the one in LIS. Very friendly staff however stated that ANA is currently in negotiations to add this lounge to Priority Pass and TP does not want to pay for it currently. Access is available only for Lufthansa Group, Iberia and Sata passengers (only TATL) as well as for a sky-high price of 36 per person.
Overall a positive development after more than 3 years without a lounge on this airport. Management was not able to enable access for PP and TP in time.
Fun fact is that the Azores are still completely without any airport lounge and that Sata does not allow airport access in FNC for domestic flights while doing so in LIS and OPO.

Quick update for LIS. The airport operator did apparently all it could to improve the lounge situation (ironic).

The second lounge space is now the third year closed and long queues are common as the airport is busier than ever before.



Meanwhile lounge access is strictly restricted to 3hrs before ETA and some membership programs have been suspended.

I guess the hidden agenda is to 1) qualify for a short term management bonus and 2) make the current airport as unattractive as possible so that politicians that bought land around the new airport site can finally profit personally from this mess.

What's anyone's experience at the Lounge in MIA when flying Executive Class. I know they use the Turkish Lounge (which I've used before - it's ok). When I go to the TAP website it interestingly says that the MIA lounge is not accessible for Executive Class, though I'm pretty sure it's Star Gold. Also, I've previously accessed the lounge on other SA carriers in business class.

I used the Turkish Lounge earlier this year but it was a zoo, very hard to find a place to sit and we left after 20min in the lounge.

I used it also in January, flying in C and being Gold. It was also packed.
