Just wanted to update, that I was able to access the Dan Lounge by showing my United Club Membership Card. I was allowed to bring my wife and toddler into the lounge no problem (and most people didn't give me evil looks like they did in the United lounge in Newark).

I asked this in a different thread but thought maybe here is more of an appropriate place to ask it...hoping it will be answered here.  (please dont yell at me for cross-posting  :-[)

the people at DAN in TLV , dont check your names when u present priority pass, we had the same expirience at LHR.

Does anyone have any recent experience with this?  Does the Dan lounge check names on the PP?

Do they swipe the PP in the Dan lounge?  (Because the Plat that was linked to it was cancelled)

Yes, they swipe.
The last 2 times I was there, they photocopied.

When flying UA biz, will they give you a coupon, or is it a YMMV

My hotel is giving me access to the King David Lounge(hoping two passes) but it says no under 18. Do you think an infant would be allowed in or we have to go in one at a time?

if it's the airline allowing you access to the lounge, they will usually give you a coupon/invitation at check in. If it's a cc, pp, etc the lounge usually make a photocopy IME
