Why can’t I access United Club lounges?
Due to a number of direct commercial relationships between airlines and financial institutions in the USA it has been determined not to allow access to certain lounges to those Priority Pass customers in the U.S. who have received their membership through a US financial institution. This includes, but is not limited to, members issued with a Priority Pass Select card.
What is the Priority Pass Select card?
If you live in the U.S. and receive your Priority Pass membership from a U.S. financial institution you may have been issued with a Priority Pass Select membership card.
As a Priority Pass Select cardholder you are entitled to exactly the same benefits as any other Priority Pass member, including access to over 600 airport VIP lounges worldwide, the only difference is that come 1 October 2011 you will no longer be able to access United Club lounges (the new brand for Continental Presidents Club and United Red Carpet Club lounges) worldwide.
What if I don’t have a Priority Pass Select card?
If you have a regular Priority Pass membership card but live in the U.S. and receive your Priority Pass membership from a U.S. financial institution, like Priority Pass Select cardholders you will no longer be able to access United Club lounges worldwide effective 1 October 2011.
