The ones with the blue dots will be.
Seems to be incorrect.
I attempted to enter the Lufthansa Biz lounge in TXL with the UA club card, I was not allowed entry because [I was told] I was not flying a star alliance airline.
According to the lounge staff, one can enter the Lufthansa Biz lounge with the UA club card ONLY if you're flying star alliance!!!
I was flying Air Berlin.

Still valid with the card, just many of the non-UA/US lounges have a *A requirement.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Do you know specifically which ones?  To save from future heartache, so far we know Lufthansa.

So I recently flew out of Israel to Greece on Arkia and was not allowed to enter the Dan Lounge with my United Club membership. The attendant said that the United Club membership will only grant access if you are actually flying on United.
