This thread is for discussion of lounges accessed by presenting the Centurion or Platinum Card.

Click HERE for discussion of the separate Priority Pass benefit.


To review discussion of this topic from 2009 - 2014, click HERE.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All American Express Centurion and Platinum cards provide access to:

  • Delta SkyClubs when flying DL.
  • Airspace lounges when flying any airline. Current locations: CLE, JFK-T5, SAN. There are no Priority Pass lounges at these locations.
  • AMEX Centurion Lounges when flying any airline. (Please do not use this thread to post about individual Centurion clubs. Use the dedicated thread for each location.)
Current international locations: EZE, CGH, GDL, GIG, GRU, MEX, MTY
Current USA locations: LGA, LAS, DFW, SFO, MIA, SEA IAH

Cards issued in USA also include:

  • Priority Pass Select which includes AS lounges, hundreds of independent lounges, but specifically excludes all UA lounges. The Wikipost of the primary Priority Pass thread includes a list of the two dozen Priority Pass lounges located in the USA.
  • $200 Airline Fee Credit which can be used to partially reimburse the cost of an airline club membership.

Cards issued outside the USA include:

  • Full Priority Pass which includes AS and UA lounges, hundreds of independent lounges, but there is no $200 Airline Fee Credit.
  • Access to other lounges or networks which vary by country.


Airspace lounge access includes spouse and children under age 21, or up to two traveling companions, at no cost.
DL will no longer accept guests at no charge. Discussion here: Delta Skyclub-- no more free guest
Priority Pass access now includes the cardholder plus two guests. Additional guests are $27 each per visit.

I'm surprised that LAX does not have a nice lounge since it is so big.

Flying from LAX-CLE-MCO

Will see if the Airspace Lounge in CLE is decent when I lay over for 2 hours.

anyone know of a free Lounge in MCO that Amex Plat can access ?

There are only two lounges at MCO, a Delta lounge and a United lounge. If you are flying Delta (I assume not since Delta does not fly LAX-CLE-MCO) you would be able to access the Delta Sky Club with your Amex Platinum, but you won't be able to while flying other airlines. The Amex Platinum does not get you any access to the United Club.

Slightly OT, but did anyone else get the fancy Cent Lounge book in the mail this week?

It's quite nice, but honestly, I'd've been just as happy if Amex send me an eBook version of this thing and applied the $3-$5 it cost them to print and mail it as a statement credit...

first trip with an Amex platnium - 3 quick questions

Flying LGA->ATL and back this Friday. First trip as an Amex platnium.

1 - Will I be able to access the Centurion Lounge when I land at LGA in the evening. My wife is flying into LGA that evening as well, landing an hour after me so i'd love to spend that hour there if possible.

2 - Will I have access to any of the Delta lounges at ATL? Or must I be flying with Delta that day? (im a gold medallion on delta if that makes a difference)

3 - For the priority pass lounge in ATL do i just show my amex card? I have enrolled for priority pass select but dont have any sort of formal membership card or anything (may be irrelevant as i do not expect to have much time hanging out in ATL anyways).

Thanks.

1. Yes, assuming the lounge is open. They close at 8.

2. No, you have to fly Delta that day.

3. Priority Pass will mail you a card; Amex cards are not accepted unfortunately.

Yes, no and no, respectively.

Cent club access is at both flight ends. So DFW-LGA-DFW gets you 4 visits, e.g.

Delta access requires a same-day boarding pass.

Priority lounges require Priority enrollment (you actually have to do this) and the actual plastic Priority card. If there's a work-around for delayed cards, I'm not aware of it, but there may be one.

Try calling priority pass and getting your card number from them. Sometimes, the lounge dragons are nice enough to let you in with just the number and no physical card.

Thanks everyone. Barring a weather delay I'm not expecting to have much time in ATL anyways, but this is def good information to have going forwards. I'll be on the lookout for the priority pass card.

Have a great day.

To be clear, the Priority Pass card does NOT come automatically. You have to enroll even though it's free. There's a separate thread somewhere for new Plat card "to do" items such as this.

I just noticed on my return flight via delta TPE Taipei taiwan -> JFK there is no delta sky club lounge in Taiwan. They use China airlines lounge. Will I be able to get in with my Amex Platnium card?

No-it's for DL SCs only. If you activated priority pass you will have access to the More Premium Lounges in T1 and T2

Also, no cross-posting (you posted the same thing in the DL forum)

Just clarifying on this, let's say I'm flying Delta RDU-JFK, can I still use the JFK Skyclub despite no onward travel?

Also, the fee for a lounge guest, can I pay it with a different card or does it have to go on the Amex Plat?
