    It's odd they say that the offer is April 5-7 only since they've been running this price since at least March 22. ;)

    Can somebody please point me at the rules for reciprocity in the UA and CO lounges? I couldn't find anything official on the US Airways site, but my understanding is the following:
    - Members can use US lounges and bring 2 guests, even when not flying *A
    - Members can use UA and CO lounges and bring one guest, even when not flying *A
    - Members can use *A lounges and bring one guest when flying *A.

    Can anyone confirm this or correct me if I'm wrong?

    It seems like a pretty good deal. :)

    You're right on the first two points. I think you are correct on the third point, but I'm not sure. I have never attempted to use a *A lounge other than US/UA/CO lounge, except when traveling internationally, and I'm *G.

    Could someone comment on whether it makes someone with no status anywhere but carries an AmEx Platinum (and thus, Priority Pass Select for free with it) credit card to purchase this membership, please? It sounds to me that Priority Pass Select would get me into *A lounges worldwide anyway, making this redundant ... thanks :)

    It depend on where you fly, who you fly (as to gate location in the airports), and what lounges are available in those airports.

    In some airports you can't freely move between concourses/terminals. For the longest time if you were flying Southwest out of terminal E in PHL, you couldn't use the RCC in the terminal D or the US Clubs in B/C since terminal E was completely segmented (security wise) from the rest of the airport. (This is no longer the case.)

    In other airports, you may not have access to the only lounges in the airport you are in. For example in the US, RCCs and CO Presidents Clubs will not not permit access via Priority Pass Select as of 10/1/2011. So if you are flying out of DEN, the only lounges available to Priority Pass are the RCCs in Concourse B but as of the beginning of Oct won't be available via Priority Pass Select. Priority Pass's complete lounge list is https://www.prioritypass.com/Members/Lounges/Downloads/PDF/PPLoungeDirectory.pdf

    Not sure if Im doing anything wrong but I dont see the $259 price when I click the link. Im a UA flyer and this was a nice way to get in the UA clubs for a reasonable price. With my membership up next week I'd love to take advantage. Only deal Ive received from US Airways is 500 elite miles.
