    Something just occurred to me (I'm slow like that). I've been using a US Airways card to get into domestic ANA lounges, but today I am flying in Premium Class.

    Do premium class tickets get you into the domestic lounge?

    Yes....

    Just scan your bar code at those boarding pass readers and it will automatically let you in without showing your US airways card!

    It's a pain that system doesn't pick up when you are *G so you don't have to keep showing your card but I have found showing your luggage tags will also get you into lounges in Japan but hey that's Japan.

    Why didn't you just get your JCG status matched to some *A airline? Cheaper and better.

    Why didn't you just get your OW Emerald status matched to some *A airline? Cheaper and better than doing a SFC/JGC run? And you don't have to spend Valentine's Day alone in Paris ;)

    BMI probably. Things have cracked down lately with CO so you'd actually have to fly them to extend the status but the good news is they will give you the status upfront for 90 days so that might work for you too if you can do all your SFC within 90 days.

    Air New Zealand should give it to you up front for a year too so I'd also recommend trying them too.
