Relax in a sophisticated environment when you wait for your flight in the United Club.  These airport lounges are centrally located in our busiest airports and offer the following:
 
Personalized travel assistance
Complimentary Wi-Fi service in all locations
Complimentary selection of beer, wine and spirits
Complimentary breakfast and afternoon snacks
Reciprocal club privileges for access to all Star Alliance® airline lounges
United Club members may access Star Alliance member airline lounges with up to one guest when departing on a same-day flight on any Star Alliance carrier.
A one-year United Club membership can be purchased online or at any United Club location.  Prices will vary based on MileagePlus® status.
 
Effective August, 1, 2012, United Club locations will only accept credit and debit cards (Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover®) as forms of payment for premium liquors and fine wines.

United Club members may access Star Alliance member airline lounges with up to one guest when departing on a same-day flight on any Star Alliance carrier. would directly contradict GG Checkpoint Line 53.

However, why not just get a gate pass from the United check in desk to access lounge when flying non SA. Probably difficult when flying out of a large airport, however should be pretty easy in TLV

The GG rule applies to UA and US branded lounges where you do not need to show a boarding pass to access the club if you are a UC member.

So basically there is no way to access an international SA member  lounge with the UC unless flying SA?

In JFK last night. The check in lady only allowed me to receive a gate pass. She said she's worked there forever and refused to look up the rules. A manager came and said its just for me and 1 guest. I called the number on the back of my club card and was told only way to get passed security is if I'm flying.

WTH?

Just did it twice this week,
@EWR, agent asked me if I was meeting someone or just to chill out, I told her I was not meeting anyone, it took her a couple of seconds to make the GPAS ticket, and as I was walking away she said that she had to ask about my intentions of the GPAS bec TSA requires it.
@FLL, just said "can I get a gate pass please" showed my card and that was it.

BTW it says clearly on requirements that all you need is club card and ID, no boarding pass .
