Reply To: Lounge Access in BCN, flying Vueling booked via BA.comBack to Forum
I made the point about lounge access for premium passengers on those LCCs that belong to a full service airline a couple of years ago, concerning Lufthansa and Germanwings/Eurowings. I was astonished when LH changed the LHR – TXL flight to one of the LCCs, and then to have no access to the lounge despite my Star Alliance gold card. No doubt the bean-counters saw that as one of the useful savings.
You would expect the major airlines like BA and LH to want to keep the loyalty of their premium passengers.
The result of that bit of LH policy is that I now use BA for Berlin, and not a LH subsidiary: so they have lost all that business. Stuff that, bean-counters.
