I just want to confirm that UA*G do have access to the LH-lounge when flying on EW.
Last weekend I flew from DUS to HAM to DUS with EW on basic, and I get access to the Senator-lounges at DUS and HAM with one guest.

Really? Does the BP yield a green beep or did they just waive you through after showing the card?
If the latter it probably simply depends on the niceness of the warden...

The website - naturally - is eerily silent on the subject ....

Is it necessary to have a flight that day on UA to be able to use the Senator lounge? I have a short round trip entirely within Germany coming up and would like to use the lounge beforehand.

I flew TXL-LHR on a 4U.com booked ticket with no UA connection and had no issues.

Good to know. Any chance you know how e.g. LX and OS deal with EW/4U tickets and their lounges?

I'm flying out of HAM in the morning on UA 865, so glad to hear I should be able to use the Senator lounge.

Why would you not have access to the SEN lounge in Hamburg? You are going international as a *G on a *A carrier.

The issue(s) at hand here is how non-FTL/SEN/HON (i.e. *Gs) are being treated when flying Eurowings/Germanwings.

Any *G on a *A carrier proper gets lounge access (well maybe with the possible exception of LX on some days) ... that is not up for debate here.

Thanks a lot for this, NewbieRunner. Very timely for my first Euro/Germanwings flight next month. ^

Good to see this documented. At the same time, this would mean that as UA*G one has not longer access to the LH lounge eg at LHR when departing on 4U from there. Anybody has any recent experience?
