Forums Payment cards American Express Lufthansa airport lounge access with Amex Platinum

    So the Amex website says to access the Lufthansa lounge you need a platinum card and a Lufthansa Group same day boarding pass. Can anyone clarify what Lufthansa Group equates to? Would that include other star alliance airlines like Swiss or am I misunderstanding?

    Austrian Airlines.
    Brussels Airlines.

    I believe Swiss is owned by Lufthansa so I’d say yes.

    You could try showing the lounge agents this website where it lists Swiss under Lufthansa Group:

    Easiest thing I find to do is search for the lounge on the Amex site as that has the entry criteria.

    I think only Lufthansa, Swiss or Austrian airlines tickets will get you in. Eurowings and Brussels aren’t mentioned.

    This benefit is the main reason I keep my Platinum card as I fly back from Frankfurt a lot. They only look at my card though, doesn’t seem to be a check that is valid, I have thought about cancelling the card and chancing it but sods law if I did that they would start checking.
