Reply To: Is Star Alliance Silver the biggest joke in the industry?

Back to Forum


I mentioned something similar mid 2009, being a Star Silver card holder with LH (FTL they call it) you are not even allowed in many lounges anymore, i.e. Star Alliance Lounges in LHR, BCN and even their own LH lounges “if they are busy”. What is the point holding the silver tier with them then and trying to upkeep it? I have asked this question with LH themselves but was given a standard non satisfactory reply. I think they have just got too big to care. I will bank on my BA Card, being Silver, you are allowed a guest into the Lounge regardless of class you are travelling in. They’ve really lost the plot and I, like many others, have lost interest in booking Star towards a gold card now….
