HI everyone !!
To Sven–do you know which lounges those eligible Merchants Club holder go to in FRA and/or MUC? They probably get access to Senator Lounges or even FCT. Are you sure they aren’t awarded the HON card, especially when they are vey loyal to LH or LH management acknowledge them? I know specially one person who was rewarded a HON card because LH management acknowledge him as a “loyal” customer–whatever that means ??
It is actually the checks or random checks which could be inforced by the Authorities in the lounges which really feds me up, because it is should be a haven to relax and not to be interrogated. Some people from other cultures like Asia would feel such actions highly inappropriate as they could lose face in front of strangers–eventhough it could only be a harmless questioning. It just doesn’t fit in ambience of an international lounge!!
What happens when British Authorities implement such actions in BA First Lounge in T5–what would BA think of it? What if BA is like LH the one who is monitored by the Authorities for such actions mentioned before.
