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

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 absolutely. 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.

Looks to me like tempered glass that shattered on impact, not a whole pane that fell down. If the whole pane fell down and wasn't tempered glass, you'd be able to tell from the shards, they wouldn't be so uniform and pebble-like.

Not too crowded this morning— plenty of seats open.

I asked about the glass. Agent said they have no idea what happened. Occurred in the middle of the night. No one hurt.

Likely a worker or cleaning crew bumped or hit the glass.

Sunday noon was pretty busy, but not a zoo. Guest and I found a two-person table, but apart from that I just saw a few scattered single seats. 4-5 people in the food line.

Swung through before a red-eye on Nov 2nd. Here's the state of the bar repairs:

The wine dispensers were offline and temporary bar taps were put in front of them (Stella & Lagunitas). Wine was being poured from the bottle.

Also as of 8:30pm on they had closed off the stairs for the window repairs:

Staff mentioned the glass popped out at around 3:30am the morning of the 2nd. But no one seems to know "why"

This does not bode well for when a reasonably good quake hits the region.

Well, it kind of does for the people inside the lounge, unless they are leaning against the window.

Quakes hit the region more frequently than whatever caused this, I'm sure. We get a magnitude 5+ quake every now and then; and I think we'd be mostly fine in the case of a 7+ too.

Do I need to clear security twice if I head to Terminal 3 first for the Centurion Lounge and my flight is in the International terminal?

Nope. There's a tunnel walkway between Terminal 3 and International Terminal.

You can go through security at either and then move freely between them once you do.

Depends on which carrier you’re on for the international flight. Terminal A would require reclearing security. Terminal G would not.

Damn It is daily flight CI3 and I think it’ll be Terminal A. Can I get in Air France/KLM lounge?

CI operates from Concourse A of the International terminal, which isn't connected air side to Terminal 3 where the Centurion lounge is.

Your PP will grant access to the Air France Lounge.

Probably a better option anyhow as the Centurion now at SFO has been crazy busy with the UC changes going on. Was just in there on Friday and the place was pretty trashed but you could get a seat.
