    United does not have a lounge in Charlotte. Nor does Lufthansa. In the past, they used the US Air lounge, but now that US Air has defected to OneWorld, what happens to LH Pax? Does US Air still let them in? If not, does anyone?

    According to the Lufthansa website, you can use the USAirways club in Charlotte, see:

    http://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/Lounge-types-and-access

    You may want to call the Charlotte USAirways club directly to check on this, just in case Lufthansa didn't update their website:

    What would be your basis for lounge access? Now that US isn't in *A, *G lounge privileges won't apply. OTOH, it's hard to imagine that LH wouldn't provide a satisfactory lounge arrangement for their own premium class passengers and probably LH elites too.

    My guess would be... US Dollars.

    The basis for an LH passenger asking for lounge access would be the provision still on the LH website that Newscience quoted above. It's not on US Air's site, though, just Lufthansa's. Which led me to ask the question.

    I also would think that LH would do something for their SENs, but I suspect their website simply hasn't been updated. However, I thought I'd ask just in case there was an LH (or UA) passenger that was allowed into the US Air lounge this month. It won't become an urgent issue for me until September, though.

    Thanks, Oliver!

    For those who want to go directly to the source, here's the post oliver2002 is referring to. See the last sentence of the 22 April press release.
