    there’s absolutely nothing to write home about F lounges for airlines like CA or NH, even at their home hubs. ANA ones (inc the service) are Japanese nice but also Japanese robotic. OZ has a so so one, but they make it up with courteous service.

    Star Gold can access Senators already, so LH can essentially bring their FRA MUC ZRH F lounges to the table (maybe excluding FRA FCT), UA with their Polaris ones. And it really sounds like LH is on board with the concept (e.g. access for F pax + HON Circle + potential Star new top tier)

    By the large, i see the biggest win (and biggest obstacle) would be convincing SQ to grant access to [[[ The Private Room ]]]. Since their own PPS Solitaire tier is revenue based, i think they would insist on actual tracking of revenue for the new tier (instead of just a tier-points based system like BA or CX does – those systems always present arbitrage opportunities, which are frequently taken advantage by those, in SQ’s eyes, not worthy of the F treatment)

    How about clamping down on airlines that restrict First Class redemptions on other Star Alliance FF programs. Such as SQ F and J on certain aircraft and SWISS F.
