    I believe so. SQ just had their Sydney lounge redone, so I would try there first. The Air NZ lounge is always chockers.

    It will, and from what I remember United does not have a lounge in SYD, so you get access to the Air NZ lounge I think...which is really really nice I have heard :thumbup:

    I am not sure if SQ will give you access to their lounge since your flight is not code-share with them?

    SQ tend to point you to the Air NZ lounge unless you are actually flying SQ...


    And yes, flying business most certainly gets you into the partner airline lounges. If your flight is an awards flight, technically, they can deny you, but I have not see that happen yet.

    Return flights are the 26th. I fly SFO-Tampa on the 20th.

    I'm at the United Club lounge in front of Gate 71 at LAX if anyone is around.

    Yeah just to confirm, United send you to the air nz lounge. Not a bad setup, self serve hotdog stand is worth it.

    Shame business class alone doesn't earn you a guest :/

    If you're flying a budget airline, you have no hope. You need to be flying an alliance partner airline to be +1'd into a lounge.

    SQ61 eh. Almost flew that about 6 months ago but did LAX-NRT-SIN instead. Would have loved to check out Moscow airport even if only for an hour
