How to Gain Free Lounge Access
Don’t be fooled by the title of the An $8000 “entry fee” for LH Gold lounge thread. FlyerTalk member kevinsac ultimately gained complimentary access to one of the Senator lounges in Frankfurt by purchasing a fully-refundable first-class international ticket, to which kevinsac received a full refund after using the lounge for a few hours to wait for a friend.
As a result of posting his story, controversy and debate has erupted in the thread. Was using the Senator lounge for a few hours a smart way to use the system? After all, kevinsac is a Star Alliance Gold member and is usually entitled to perks, and kevinsac did technically follow the rules.
Or, did kevinsac beat the system in an illegal manner?
What do you think?
