    I’ve written before that the Caribbean is considered domestic for most of US Airway’s purposes. There are complimentary upgrades to the Caribbean even though the upgrades are complimentary domestic upgrades.

    I had a feeling the US Airways club’s rule that international first class tickets got free access was for US Airways’ definition of international. But I looked all around and couldn’t find anything defining first class that way. I tried calling the Chairman line a couple of times but couldn’t find anyone who knows.

    The LoungeBuddy app said access was permitted via US Airway’s rules, but I was still convinced that the Caribbean was domestic. I asked around on Twitter and no one could help me find a definition that would exempt the Caribbean.

    I asked at the US Airways club itself, described the trip, and asked if it grants access. The agent told me yes, for all international first class travel.

    So I sent my parents to the club with the caveat that I think US Airways considers the Caribbean domestic, but everything else pointed to them being able to go. And then they were turned away.

    I talked to the club agent about this. Her response was:

    “Oh! A lot of our agents think the Dominican Republic is in South America, but it’s not. It’s… an… island?”
