Status of International Lounges
Earlier Jet Airways discontinued lounges for all economy passengers including Platinum members.
However, they offered Lounges to passengers flying Premiere or on International routes.
The operator of the Plaza Premium Lounges in India has pulled the plug on Jet Airways, which means Jet Airways business class passengers, who were using the Plaza Premium Lounge courtesy the airline, will no longer be invited to the lounge by the airline.
This new move was put into effect from late March 18, 2019, onwards. A notice to this effect is now reflecting on the airline’s website as well.
As of now, all International flights have been taken off from Hyderabad, However, passengers are still able to fly International from New Delhi. This is a sad development that passengers from Business class are not able to access the lounge. I am not sure what is the status with First class passengers
