Do I have any way to access the EWR Polaris terminal C? Flying United economy. Have Amex plat. Venture x. United club passes.
Nope. Polaris is for international business class only.

Thanks, what is Tabernacle?

It's for a person who can't get around easy so needs to be in T4.

You mean go to a different terminal and then come back for flight? That wouldn't be feasible to go through security twice.

Do LY business passengers get to guest people in any lounge? Maybe could ask a favor. Which lounge and how many?

Went through Newark Polaris last week. No kosher food.  Not even potato chips or pretzels. I asked an attendant yo check the kitchen and he came out empty-handed (and apologetic). In an airport that services many kosher travelers, where the Cibo outlets have sandwiches and wraps, the Polaris lounge can't even stock some basic kosher snacks??

I think a lot of people get confused because in the Amex app it says itís only open from 5am-8am

When arriving internationally without a continuing ticket at JFK (or others) is it possible to get back into the terminal area in order to  access lounges? As is done when arriving back from a trip domestically?

Also anyone have Kosher food breakdown and complementary availability at JFK/others ?

you can't access. Also in general you will have big luggage and nothing to do with it.

I'm traveling with united from EWR with a family of 6. We have one priority pass membership (through CSR) and one of us is a Premier Platinum member, is there any way we can all access a lounge?

Under 6 can go in for free with parent and the platinum member can take in 1 guest that might help if you have a young family.
