Does anybody know if you can get into Star Alliance lounges (non-United Club) for free for domestic flights with United 50k status?

Unfortunately, you are getting incorrect information. There are a small number of domestic clubs owned by *A partners (like the LH club in DTW) that will allow a *G member to enter regardless of their ticket (as long as they are on a *A carrier). Most *A carriers grant lounge access to all *G members because they do not have the upgrade benefits UA has domestically. That's why in Germany any *G member can use a lounge from FRA to MUC or other domestic flights. You cannot do the same with a UA Club location. (also a UA GS flyer)


West Monroe is a mid sized management consulting firm (about 1600 people) headquartered in Chicago. Check out wmp.com for more details.

Hello, you can get in to Star Alliance lounges if you’re traveling business class. Otherwise you will not get Star Alliance lounge access until you hit *G which only happens at Platinum, I believe. Sincerely, Your friendly United Global Services flyer

My company misplaced my official approval notice since I transferred right around the beginning of the pandemic and we went into a lockdown.

To clarify I am trying to travel abroad for visa stamping and then come back.

So we sometimes make friends at work.. but if this friend insists on asking about how much you get paid, how do you feel about it? Some friends you don’t feel like telling them how much you make (if you make more, you make the other feel bad, if you make less you feel bad). And one data point doesn’t mean anything. Honestly I probably should let him/her post the question in the company bowl.. Do you ask your friends about their salary (esp if working at the same company)?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
