Thanks for sharing! It does, indeed, sound like a good value proposition compared to airline-operated lounge day passes. Is the paid access to continue indefinitely? I can see it may be tough to maintain lounge standards to a Plat/Cent level if it becomes flooded with $17.50 admissions.

Are there showers in the lounges, or merely toilet facilities?

Does the discount apply to members of frequent flyer programs that have US-based lounge access (i.e. non-US based OneWorld sapphire and emerald, or non-US based Star Alliance gold), or only to paid supplementary lounge memberships such as Admirals Club and United Club?

An interesting marketing move would be to temporarily extend a discounted rate to competing card products such as HSBC Premier and Citibank Gold account holders, who may then bite for a Plat card application.

EDIT - just noticed variable pricing on the website... no details, but seems like a good (if perhaps confusing) way to keep lounge numbers manageable.
