Amex Centurion/Plat access to LH/LX FCL/SEN lounges

According to OMAAT, Amex Centurion cardholders will get MUC T2 Satellite FCL access when flying LH/LX/OS in any class of service.

Seriously? If true, LH has no idea what hoards they just invited in.

To be honest I do not think LH would allow that. Especially with the limited seating in that lounge. Also I have received no correspondence from Centurion to show this and I am sure they would be eager to show off a new benefit as very little has been added lately.

Here's the story:

Perhaps you can verify it in the app?

Are there really that many Centurion holders that this even has a chance of becoming an issue?

Probably quite a bit more then HONs (like add another digit or two according to forum guesstimates).

If this is extended to European Amex cards (which seems very likely), I see a swarm of rubber ducks flying my way...

I think there'll be many Centurion cardholders who would have no idea what Lounge access their card gives them... but even though as HON I think this is dreadful, it's a nice development for my partner who has a Centurion card but is only SEN.

To be honest I have found no source for this other than the article on One Mile At A Time so it could just be a rumor unless a US Centurion member could check their app.

I'd be interested in that too.
The optimist in me doesn't believe the LH F lounge access until I've heard back from someone who got in...

Centurion card holders have FCL access as of last week, only to FCL satellite, no Limo service & no guests.

Octoberfest Ducks, as of last week, same design as previously but they have been miniaturised
Do you know if this is also valid for European Centurions?

Interesting. Since you're HON you obviously got in the lounge anyway but do you know how it works for Cents that aren't HON? I'm asking this because the "No limo transfer" part confuses me. Does this mean that at the Limo transfer desk they differentiate between HON/F pax and Cents?

Yes, HON & F pax receive the limo service exclusively
