ZRH lounge question
I am flying CX J to ZRH and will have a layover before flying Y in LX. Will I have access to the one world lounges or will I have to do priority pass for Aspire?
Based on [URL=’http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2014/08/25/know-lounge-access-international-itineraries/’]this post from Lucky[/URL] I believe you will have access.

Yes, you will have access. According to OW’s website:
First and Business Class customers connecting on the same day of travel, or before 6am the following day, can access the lounge when travelling between an international long haul (a [B]one[/B]world international long haul flight is defined as an international flight marketed and operated by any [B]one[/B]world carrier with a scheduled flight time longer than 5 hours) and an international short haul or domestic flight (and vice-versa).
ZRH has the Aspire Lounge which seems to be pretty good, I believe this was the Oneworld Lounge when I was there in (2014?). Be sure to hang on to your CX boarding pass to get in.
If you were connecting to a oneworld carrier, you’d have lounge access (as the others have correctly noted above).
However, as you are connecting to [I]Swiss[/I], which is in Star Alliance, you would not be covered under that policy. I’d plan on the Aspire lounge, or purchasing a day pass to the Swiss lounge.
thanks so much!
