FAQ
Q: Where is the lounge?
A: Terminal 3, F concourse, right by Gate F2 (formerly gate 75) and the F-1 security checkpoint (that has PreCheck, sometimes).

Q: Can I visit there if I'm departing from another terminal?
A: Absolutely. Security at SFO will let passengers departing from any concourse at SFO go through security in any concourse, even ones that aren't connected behind security. At the moment, Terminal 3 concourses E and F, and International Terminal concourse G are connected airside to the Centurion lounge. Some other concourses are connected to each other airside, but not to the point that you can walk airside to the Centurion. However, with a PreCheck security lane right next to the entrance to the lounge, it can be quite easy to clear security twice if necessary.

Q: Can I visit if I'm arriving at SFO?
A: It depends. If you're arriving in the aforementioned concourses E, F, or G, then yes, but only if you have a connecting flight. If you're arriving in one of the other concourses, then security at SFO won't let you clear into E, F, or G without a boarding pass departing SFO that day. If you're arriving internationally, again, you'd need a same-day SFO departing boarding pass to clear security.

I'm guessing that at after the move to International A, lounge-eligible AS passengers will have access to the airside DL lounge in I-A.
Yep, I was in the SFO AS last week, and they had a little placard indicating they were closing.. I asked if they were planning to open another boardroom in the other terminal, and the answer was no..

It probably makes a lot more sense for them to use the airside DL lounge in International-A.

Today's announcement about a new lounge in Miami has this:

The Centurion Lounge in Miami joins a network of Lounges in key airports across the country, including LAS, DFW, LGA (opening summer 2014), and SFO (opening late 2014)

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/americ...172400907.html (my emphasis).

I'm not surprised. A couple of weeks ago it looked like they have all sorts of construction work to do at SFO.

Oh well. However long it takes, I'll be eager to visit it when it opens.

More broadly, I think this is likely to be a big win-win for Amex and its cardholders.

SFO Centurion Lounge questions

I am debating getting an AmEX platinum card, a key benefit for me would be the SFO Centurion Lounge. I wanted to check if anyone could help with these questions:

1. It has been stated in various places since late last year that the SFO Centurion Lounge will be available "summer 2014". Has anyone seen a more recent update

2. This lounge will be at "the mezzanine level above the premium security checkpoint in Uniteds Terminal 3 and gate 75". Does anyone know if other terminals (which ones?) can be reached from here without going in and out of security?

3. If I get a second card for my wife would she have the same access?

ANn help appreciated!

Most of the answers to your questions are all in this thread, one answer only two posts above.

The latest opening update is "late 2014." Nothing more specific.

Airside terminal 3 lounges can reaching international G but no others without re-clearing security.

Yes, you can get a second card for your wife. Authorized users also get access.

The informed speculation in this thread and in the San Francisco forum is that the SFO lounge will be airside, but to my knowledge we have never seen anything official from Amex or SFO on that.

That will be nice, I have a return flight planned via LGA at the end of August. Hopefully it's open by then. Now I'm REALLY happy I chose to not fly through EWR.

Apparently the SFO location won't have a spa / treatment area, but it will have a wine tasting bar to reflect the local culture.
