    If I have the $200 credit from AMEX tied to Delta, does anyone know if I can use it to pay for a day pass with Air France Lounge at CDG?
    About 3x a year, we fly AA 62 MIA CDG with a 4 hour layover, then AF CDG NTE that we book through Delta. Trying to find best way to relax, shower, energize before that afternoon flight.
    Any insight is appreciated.

    If your carrier is DL, I wouldn't expect an AF charge to be reimbursed.

    I do understand that if I fly on AF metal and yet the ticket is through Delta, that AF incidental charge of either lounge of checked luggage fees are not valid even with my Delta ticket (as those are billed through AF). Just wishing someone could say, "heck no, Delta and AF recognize, etc......"
    The only good news in this, I was able to get the $200 back on Delta charge card sent to me and was reimbursed on my AMEX today. Just wish I could spend that $200 somehow as I cant really fly Delta here. I guess it's time to gift it to someone I know who flies Delta.

    If you're booking through Delta, can you just purchase business class? I can't imagine it'd be more than $200. Business class, even intra-Europe should come with lounge access.

    Great idea. The "business" option on purchasing doesn't show up on the internet....I will call, though. Thanks.
