HSBC Ataturk

If you are an HSBC Premier account, UK member and think you have the use of the HSBC lounge in the Ataturk airport, think again, it is only for Turkish account holders as we found out on Friday.

Some years ago we were premier in both Turkey and the UK, qualifying in both countries after selling our Gundogan house and buying the Yalikavak one we decided not to leave the requisite amount in Turkey to qualify due the exchange rate risk.
They allowed us to keep the status for 3 months then insisted we become advanced members which meant access for a nominal fee, our argument was as qualifying Premier customers from another country as part of the HSBC global banking promise they had to honour it, they said this is Turkey so we don't.
They certainly don't honour the global banking system that HSBC promise.

Re: HSBC Ataturk

Yes, Mollag you need to hold a Turkish Premier card. We found that out a couple of years ago. Luckily we had a Turkish card. Before that, your U.K. Premier card would get you in the lounge in Istanbul. Is there a Premier lounge at Gatwick ? We haven't seen one.
