I invited Post Postpartum some people in the IST TR lounge, meaning, while getting into the main hall, a girl (obviously jewish) asks me if I'm coming from the TLV flight as she was meeting her father, so I told her yes. Her accent told me where she was traveling to, so I figured that she has still a few hours till her flight, so I told her that she will be allowed in the lounge with her father.

Coming to the lounge,  I left a message that I have 2 guests, named xxxxx traveling to XXX. When I left this note with their info was still there.

I once asked 2 yeshivish looking guys in IAH if they wanted to come with me into the "club" and they looked at me like I just fell off the moon  ;D

Their loss, IAH term E Presidents club is awesome!

You should have used the term 'lounge', they must have thought something else  ;-)

True, but their look was so much funnier this way. And CO does call it a club after all  ;)

Talking about "club", I thought I'd whack one of those CO's on the head with it...

I got my brother *A G (can you believe it?), and they didnt let him into the CO ewr lounge, because they serve alcohol, and he is 17.

Is this everywhere in the usa like that?

I dont know, but if they do, they should just say that they dont sell to him.

Dan, this is an embarrassment to your airline.

No.
CO gives free beer/liquor, etc. in all of their lounges and does not check your ID, which is exactly why they don't allow access to those under 21 unless they are brought in by someone 21+.

DL and US also have free alcohol in their clubs.
AA and UA both charge for alcohol in their clubs.

US has only free like the cheapest type of beer, just enough to save money by not letting in the <21.

If the <21 brings in an adult, does it count, or the adult needs to bring him in.

as the "nice" lady in CLT said, you are responsible for your guest... So I told her, that if im responsible for my guest, us airways is responsible for me, as Im their guest....

The whole 21+ thing is YMMV.
My 19 year old bro got into LAX and IAH with AMEX Plat but got refused at EWR and CLE.

Officially the member with the entry credentials needs to be 21+ but it's possible that if you bring someone 21+ with you that they would let it slide or perhaps not even notice that you're under 21.

the frankfort business class lounge is really nothing special, just fruit and fountain soda and beer... so its not such a plus. the first class lounge is alot nicer. but their strict and dont let business class passengers in.

Are there showers and all in the business class lounge in frankfurt?
