In recent weeks, Star Alliance have unveiled Star Alliance Gold Track, branded priority security queues at some major airports.
This is frightening similar to Skyteam’s SkyPriority offering, although SkyPriority is branding that extends also to check-in, boarding and baggage claim.
Star Alliance Gold Track is not available down under, in fact the closest destination is Tokyo (Narita). Gold Track opened at Narita on 30 January 2015.
Star Alliance Gold Track is offered to begin with in an almost random grab-bag of primarily United Airlines-served destinations around the world:
Europe Athens, Brussels, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Lisbon, Ljubljana, London, Porto, Zurich
Americas Bogota, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), Newark, Seattle, Washington (Dulles)
Asia Tokyo (Narita)
We will follow the roll-out of this concept with interest.
