I was at EWR for my GE interview and stopped by the Art & Lounge. Here is a quick non update:

It still has the feel of a Bikur Cholim room. Decent coffee, basic kosher food around El Al flights. Cold beer is nice. Feels quite worn at this point. The staff seems pretty miserable to be there. Not bad to drop in to, but nothing special.

Here are some pics (btw, is that a 787 model?):

Old post, but things have changed somewhat in Manila. The new terminal in Manila has a much nicer lounge. The one in the old terminal (terminal one I think) was literally the worst that I had ever experienced. The common airport seating area was much preferable to the lounge. In the old terminal the furniture looked like it was gathered from a thrift shop (couches were torn and dirty), the lounge looked and smelled horribly and I could not wait to get out. The new one was nicer, but the A/C was down the last time I was there.

1st class lounge Eva with a few other airlines, in Manila is literally the worst lounge I have been to. Floors are dirty, no food, drinks are literally expired beverages. Place is an outrage.

I was refused entry to a Maple Leaf lounge @ YYZ T1 using United Club membership. (They scanned my card and said I was not eligible- flying same day on AC YYZ-PHL)
Policy stated here < http://www.staralliance.com/en/lounge-access-policy > indicates I should have been granted entry.
I called United (after the fact.) Rep was not sure, looked into it and came back saying refusal was correct. I mentioned the Star Alliance site, she put me back on hold, came back and said "she needs to refer this to her marketing team."
(She gave me 1k "Goodwill" points- which I did not ask for.)

Anyone have any experience with this? Should be a common scenario...

Do you have a “paid” membership? It seems that only “paid” membership will grant you access.

Upgrade the sapphire preferred to a sapphire reserve and she can access the wingtips lounge in T4 which is near ELAL

Kind of lost you guys at this point (PP, APP etc.).

Also, don't necessarily want to change credit cards (credit reports etc.) right now (unless it is free and easy maybe)just for this one trip. Any other suggestions?

What referral link are you talking about?
