What it says is "Access to 3rd party lounges (e.g. Star Alliance owned and operated) lounges is currently not included in your ticket unless you travel in Business Class on a United Airlines operated flight."Currently this is not stated on the website. The Velocity website makes no mention of this starting on 24 May.
I take that as the negotiations are happening, but not yet finalised for Velocity status holders. Which lounge do UA pax get directed to in Sydney currently?
