Which Lounge will I get - Crazy Itinerary

So, I am flying United from EWR - HKG; then Ethiopian from HKG to BKK; and then BKK to CCU on Air India. Will be in BKK for 6 hrs from 11am to about 4am. While AI contracts with Miracle Lounge, reviews are not that good...can you tell me whether I will be able to get access to any other lounges open during that time? I do not have status with any airline and dont have priority pass, so completely at the mercy of that boarding pass and lounge invitation.
Thank you for your replies,
D

11:00am to 4:00am is 17 hours, not 6.

day 1 - 11:00 (11:00am)
day 2 - 04:00 (4am)

that's 17-hours (13hr in day 1 and 4 hrs in day 2).

Unless you actually meant to same 11am - 4 pm, which is actually 5 hours.



If your only access to lounges is based on an Air India ticket - then you're stuck with the Miracle lounge.


If I were stuck in BKK airport from 11am to 4am the following day, I'd probably pay for hotel.

11AM to 4AM is 17 hour layover. Since ET flight gets in at 23:30 you may mean 11PM to 4 AM. Here is a link to AI’s wesite with different lounges at BKK.

Are you on one single ticket?

Any checked bags? If so, do you think those will be checked through to CCU.

Do you think you'll have all your boarding passes issued in EWR?

While these aspects do not affect your lounge access - on the plus side the

LOUIS TAVERN LOUNGES
Concourse F Level 3 (Business Class)
Concourse G Level 3 (Business Class)

are open 24 hrs.

Your time and procedures at BKK may be affected. Checked bags through, and one single ticket, then int'l-int'l midfield connection should be possible, with or without (Connection Counter) BP for BKK-CCU.


If say, any bags are only checked through to BKK then this means you'd have to clear arriving Immigration, retrieve bags, clear Customs, then head up to level 4 where you may not be able to check in immediately, then you'll have to clear departing Immigration.

Yes, but the OP should be able to access other Star Alliance Lounges by virtue of their departing Business Class Star Alliance Boarding Pass (Air India being Star Alliance)

I've tried most of the lounges at BKK and EVA Air's is my favorite. Not too crowded late at night, good food and drinks (including fresh coconuts!), massage chairs, showers, and an atmosphere very different than any other *A lounge. Unless you have a sensitivity to neon lighting, you should definitely give it a try! And you can always hit a nearby Thai Airways Royal Silk Lounge, too, for great food but dated decor with uncomfortable seating.

I was at the EVA lounge on a Tuesday night (10:30pm) a couple of weeks ago and it was mobbed. It was so crowded I went to the TG Royal Silk lounge by the E gates which was comparatively quiet. 11pm to 4am timeframe may be problematic since some lounges aren't open 24 hours
