    Hi there,

    Will i get lounge access if I arrive in C (BKK-AKL TG C) but leaving in Y on NZ? This is a SA award ticket and as expected, not all segments have business class availability.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Probably not. The lounge is based on the class of travel for departure. So, if you are in Y on NZ, you don't have lounge access unless you are a *G.

    Hmm ok thanks alot. So if without *G, is there any other way to get in? Like a 1 time payment fee or something?

    Not a one time fee, no. But Koru Club membership can be bought. Probably not worth it if you will not fly AirNZ regularly.

    If your layover is other than brief, it's worth stopping in and asking - presenting your BP from the earlier flight. On DL and AA, I never have a problem accessing the clubs upon arrival. *A seems to have some tighter rules about it arriving pax using the concourse lounges, but as long as you don't pull a DYKWIA and simply ask politely, worst they'll do is say it isn't possible.
