You gotta classify the aircraft type.
QR still has angled flat seats on their A330s
Most A330 have been retrofitted already.  All A340 have been retrofitted.  Hard to find flights longer than 3 hours in QR without lie flat J.

They will never take you directly to the FCT, even if arriving from Schengen!! However they will take you to whichever lounge you prefer, (which would be the "B" lounge as they offer limousine service to the plane from there, as opposed to the "A" lounge)

Not sure what your point is in quoting my post, but yes.

To fulfill kibbud av va'eim, I'm going to re-ask the same question in a slightly different way. Has anyone ever heard of any adverse incident with frum people flying Royal Jordanian or stopping over in AMM for a few hours/ not leaving the airport?
No issues.  Except they might insist that you just arrived or are heading to 'Palestine' instead of Israel.

Or you got unlucky.
When did I say anything about my experience?
Policy is, only free for F (or Platinum).

Seems like Six Senses may have once been free for J, but now only F.  Style and Shave was always only free for F.

You got lucky!

True. THough that one doesn't require a F boarding pass at all, as I've heard that even the the roped-off F area is regularly breached by J pax.
F pax also get free spa/salon service

You can always try to do a product change to a no AF card.
Good point.

Credit Cards / Re: credit score
« on: May 12, 2016, 12:17:59 AM »
Most important is keeping your oldest card open.

Secondary is keeping a handful of old cards open long term.

For internal scoring, it may be beneficial to keep your oldest card open with a specific card issuer.  I know Chase weighs this when making decisions.
Thanks. 
I'm trying to decide if it's worth paying the annual fee... So far only reason in favor is length of card...

Credit Cards / Re: credit score

I'm sure this is discussed somewhere in this thread but a quick search didn't pull up a direct answer. 
When calculating oldest existing account for credit history is each bank important or just entire credit history? Practically, if a card from Amex is your oldest card with them but you have older cards with another bank, is there any compelling credit score (or future applications?) reason to keep the card open?

does someone who arrives in first class in Frankfurt  and continues in business class get the private limo from the plain and to the plain?
To the plane, yes (so long as it's a LH group flight).  From the plane no, because the FCT is not a transit terminal.  However, if you land at a remote stand you will get a private vehicle (or semi private) to take you to your next gate or the First Class Lounge or passport control etc.

Please read the question carefully before answering:

Does anyone know if my wife, traveling on her Israeli passport can transit in AUH (or DOH)?
Looking for someone with experience please.
Transit in AUH doesn't require passport control.  Leaving Airport obviously does.  Preclearance in AUH may raise some eyebrows of some local staff in AUH with an Israeli passport, but it's USA passport control, so it's not an issue.  Did not travel on Israeli passport, but that's my experience both transit and leaving Airport.  Not sure about DOH, but upon arrival, it seemed like access to the rest of the airport was without passport control (I left the airport).

Used the numbers I believe you posted. They confirmed that it would be there. They asked what time i wanted it and I said an hour after i arrived from the connecting flight. They asked if Lounge A or B i said FCT they were confused but then figured it out after 20 minutes on hold.

Twitter @Lufthansa referred me to @Lufthansa_FCT which said sorry but we will scold our staff. Reported that to @Lufthansa and they sent me some link to fill out some more info. Still waiting on compensation. Not expecting anything. Swiss didnt get us KSML in J on outbound and i got 5k M&M.

Sorry to hear.  Worked flawlessly for me.
