No Club access in PHL as *G?

    Hi all,

    I've just booked a ticket flying PHL-CLE-LGA later this summer. As an M&M SEN, I assumed I could use the lounges. However, when looking them up on united.com it appears as the one in CLE gives access to *G, while the one on PHL doesn't.

    Is this correct?

    That's incorrect... as a Lufthansa M&M Senator you're traveling internationally and will have access to all *G Lounges in the USA (US Airways & United Clubs, as well as Air Canada MLLs).

    You can use either the UA or US lounges in PHL, too.

    That's a really odd oversight. PHL (and from what I see with a brief check only PHL) is marked on United's lounge list with access only to club members and BusinessFirst/GlobalFirst. Of course this makes no sense at all, but it is indeed listed that way.

    that doesn't sound right.. if for some reason the UA lounge doesn't let you in, you could always use one of the US Airways lounges.

    that is an interesting routing - is it related to requalifying as a SEN?

    People do make fun of US's 20+x flights between PHL-LGA with the joke that there is no local traffic. Much of that is going away with the Delta slot swap.

    For PHL: No yellow dot under "Amenieties and eligibility"

    [​IMG]

    At CLE: The yellow dot, indicating access for *G, if understood this information correct.

    I had also always assumed that an *G would get access at all lounges in North America (no, I have never flown domestic in NA as a *G), but this confused me a bit.

    Not really. It was just a lot cheaper than going direct, plus I like flying to get new airports/routes/etc. on the map :cool:

    *G should get access to all business class lounges that are not contract lounges. US has lounges in PHL (all concourses except F) are connected after security in case there are any issues.

    Still perplexed on the routing. Amtrak would be easier and quicker. Connect by Hertz will allow one-ways from PHL airport to NYC. Both cheaper and faster. It's only 99 miles away.
