Title: Airport Lounges
Post by: yossik on May 29, 2008, 03:10:55 PM
What's the best way to get into airport lounges? 
Title: Re: airport lounges
Post by: levi on May 29, 2008, 03:21:26 PM
in my opinion i would say the cheapest way is by getting a additional card on the amex platinum

Doesnt that card have a high annual fee if you didnt get Dans deal last year?

Yes, thats why i said try getting an additional card meaning like becoming a secondary card holder and you still recieve all the benefite

I called them up once, and this lady said she'd been working there for 7 years and that there was never a promotion for that card. How often are there promos for that specific card?
Title: Re: airport lounges
Post by: moish on May 30, 2008, 02:05:44 AM
you dont need any promos  i recommend doing what i did  i signed up for the card (albeit for a 100k mr bonus offer) but maintain the $450 annual fee bec it costs a flat $175 for an additional 3 cardholders so 450 + 175 / 4 = arond 160 per person and found 3 people who i trust not to spend money on the card but only for status purposes willing to spend 160 for a card that gives automatic spg gold, and access to many lounges including aa admirals club (which is 300/year w/o plat card) among other benefits   make sure you call them to make sure the numbers are still right though

The other option is of course to hang out at the front the the lounge and bum an entry!

I often will guest in total strangers-no skin off my back!

is there any way to limit spending on the additional cards, and will the platinum card give the additional card holder elite status or is it just the account holder that gets the elite statuses
Title: Re: airport lounges
Post by: Eli on May 30, 2008, 04:00:41 PM
Levi can confirm if this is correct or not but I believe that you can just walk into a lounge and show the card and you'll get in. As far as Elite statuses like SPG Gold etc. I don't know if the additional card holder will get as well.

Being that it's a business account, it should allow you to limit spending on it. But a word of warning: only split it with people you know and trust. When the second year comes around and all you have is an e-mail address for some guy who you split it with, you can end up getting royally screwed. I had a similar situation with a cell phone plan split amongst a bunch of guys. Bad idea.
Title: Re: airport lounges
Post by: E on May 30, 2008, 04:06:20 PM
if its possible i would limit the additional card holders to zero and it would basically just be a status/pass card i could give or lend out

-Additional Plat cardholders will get SPG Gold.
-At the lounge they do swipe the card to confirm that it is active.
-You must be flying on the airline whose lounge you wish to enter on the same day.
-You can bring in your spouse and kids or 2 guests.

That's totally and completely bizarre, I have never ever been asked for a BP with my PC membership., and was always asked for my BP with the AMEX Plat. 
Why would they ask for a BP with a PC membership if it's not required?

$375 although they have a promo now $75 off, they used to have a additional promo 5000 EQM"s + the $75 off could be you can still get it I think it was targeted though

You do know that you can't get everything at once, right?
Title: Re: airport lounges

Incorrect.

The AMEX plat will get you into AA/CO/DL/NW clubs if you are traveling with that airline that day.

The CO Pres Plus is a full CO PC membership, so it will get you into any CO/NW club regardless if you are flying that day (free airport security pass), and into DL if you are flying any Skyteam airline that day.

Post by: moish on June 01, 2008, 05:53:30 PM
i stand corrected however i can only speak for myself when i say that its not worth it for me to start changing terminals before a flight when im not flying continental (i usually fly from big airports) and i usually fly aa  so for ME and people like me, amex plat is far superior

No argument-For most people AMEX Plat is superior, especially because of the many benefits that come with it such as SPG Gold and lost item protection.

But the CO pres plus card has its merits, including elite access, Avis pres club, and the ability to access overseas partner lounges such as in TLV that AMEX Plat won't cover.

Hello People, Let's make something clear here for the 1,000,000th time.
If your doing this for SPG Gold, Don't Bother! SPG Gold is pretty useless & available for free just for asking.

Only reason I asked was because Dan said-
"No argument-For most people AMEX Plat is superior, especially because of the many benefits that come with it such as SPG Gold and lost item protection."

So I figured it wasn't as easy as a simple phonecall.

I'm positive about TLV access, here is the full list of PC and affiliated lounges:
https://www.continental.com/web/en-us/content/travel/airport/lounge/locations/all.aspx

AMEX Plat will get you into any branded AA/CO/DL/NW lounge when traveling on that airline that day, but not into their affiliated lounges.

"only the primary cardmember will receive a Presidents Club membership. A spouse membership may be added for $150 per year by contacting the Presidents Club Service Center at 800-322-2640." Thats cheaper than $170 (but it doesnt give them eliteaccess...) - no clue how many u can add.... maybe a little bit of a clue (or just call them)

Sign up for the Amex Platinum card for yourself and as many supplementary cardholders (I think 3 is max). Wait until you receive the cards in the mail then call up to cancel. You won't have to pay the annual fee, but you have the card! The cards will work fine in all American, Continental, Delta and Northwest lounges. I've been in many airport lounges throughout North America and never had a problem getting in. They swipe the card, it beeps but even though the account is non-active they welcome you in.

If you're feeling adventurous you can also sign up for the additional Amex Platinum benifits before you cancel (Avis, Hertz, SPG Gold etc).

I've been doing this for 3+ years, it really works.

Not necessarily. Remember, credit card issuers are not legally bound to report everything to the agencies, they volunteer to do so. If you convince them opening the account was made in error (say, you didn't realize it was lacking xyz feature) you can ask them not to report to the credit agencies.....and they won't. 
Title: Re: airport lounges
Post by: AsherO on August 11, 2008, 10:10:08 AM
It theory you're correct. In reality the reporting happens automatically, the removal request has to be requested manually and you'll probably have to spend time on the phone trying to get that done for you.

Once every 4 years it's worth it.

Another option is if you already have any Amex (and on this forum, who doesn't!) simply ask to change to the Platinum and change back after you receive the card. This should not effect your credit at all.

For those of you flying out of LGA, I'm sitting now in the Delta lounge even though I'm flying NWA now that they merged. The Delta lounge is nicer and has a better selection of drinks. The NWA lounge has better snacks (probably not kosher though) and free wi-fi. I have a built in Sprint card so that didn't matter to me. This lounge is quiet and nice, but smaller than the other lounges I've been in.

Always? I've seen reports that they sometimes don't ask for it.  Anyone ever try booking a refundable ticket for that day on a Clubs airline and cancelling it? I would assume it would work even if you cancel before you come to the airport as long as you printed your boarding pass.

You can refund a refundable ticket at any time, even at the airport.

I am referring to flying on an Airline that doesn't have a lounge and trying to access CO,AA, or Delta lounge.
If they usually ask for a boarding pass from their airline it seems booking and canceling a refundable ticket sounds like the way to go.

yes, but remember that some fully refundable tickets sometimes still have a non refundable booking cost...

you could buy some duty free to make up on that ;D

That would def. help. When you're drunk you don't know or care how much $ you're loosing!                                                          
On a side note, my mom flew TLV-EWR  on CO this week,  when she bought duty free (whiskey) instead of delivering it to you on the plane, they handed it to her on the spot. When she was boarding the plane they stopped her and said to either run and return it or to put it in her carry on and check that planeside.  (A little tip for sneaking in extra checked baggage- show up to the gate with it and when they say its too big to carry on they offer to check it planeside for free. You get it back with all the strollers right when you land!)

You don't always get it with the strollers when you land. I was on a fully booked Jetblue plane and there was no room for our carry-on, so they checked it plane-side. When we landed it was not there, they told us it was by baggage claim, but it was not there either. We went to file a claim. Just as they finished the claim the carousel started rolling again and we got our carry-on, an hour later (We did get a $30 credit for the trouble, on a $41 flight...).

It is a very good trick though I think.

I'll admit...I once had a United flight that got delayed 10 hours (I ended up getting about $400 credit for that) and I bought a fully refundable first class delta ticket on the latest flight out that night. When I got to the lounge 3 seconds later I showed them the boarding pass on my blackberry. Worked like a charm. I sat down, promptly called Delta, and cancelled the ticket. This all happened within about 10 minutes. I don't even think the charge made it to my credit card.

I'm not saying you should do this. It is possible to get screwed. Imagine a guy thinks he will cancel once he boards and then calls and there's a 20 minute hold time and he can't cancel before the other flight takes off and then has to pay for the ticket.

Don't think so.

AA and LY are in terminal 2A, AF is in terminal 2E. Terminal 2A and 2E are two separate buildings, meaning u will have to take the shuttle bus to get to 2E, do immigration, and they redo security again at 2A for ur LY flight, probably better to stick with the AA lounge.

The plat is at 50k now? An someone provide a link pls. Also it would be to long till she signs up and gets the card and the pp. she doesn't have an ink but shell have my passes (2 of them). I would love to see that new lounge DL just built :).
I'm on mobile now so I can't link it. Search Mercedes Benz Platinum and you'll find it.

If she applies today and gets approved, she should have the card by Tuesday.

Call PP and ask them to rush the card or is there anyway they can reimburse you.

The only way you will get in the DL Lounge is with a Plat card. The ink passes will get you into The Oasis Lounge in T4.

Was just in the us airways lounge in PHX. Agent at desk told me that this is the only one in terminal, even though i found out later (right before flight) that there was another one down the hallway. The one i went to was very small (ground level one), and was packed, not recommended. If u have a layover here go to the other one (upper level).

I can only answer one part of that q, yes, if you have the United pass they will let you in even if not flying with them. And from personal experience I think the UA club would be better.

Right after security is the Swiss air lounge and the Oasis Lounge. They used to be before security but security in t4 was changed recently.

You can also get into the Delta lounge which got a lot of press  a few weeks ago when it opened. Personally I wasn't so impressed when I was there. It is however, bigger and nicer from the Oasis and it also has the open porch.

They all have so many different options. The best thing is to go on their website and and see what they accept and what you have.

I used PP for Oasis and AMEX Platinum for DL.

Or, just take all your passes and cards and when you come in to the lounge ask what they accept.

Also heard that with the Platnium i currently can get in free with no boarding pass a US Air ,is that true ?

Priority Pass. You get it when you have an active Platinum card. When you cancel the card, you will lose the free membership and will have to pay money to enter any of the clubs they are affiliated with.

So then let me make this crystal clear: a PP card that is not valid - whether not linked to an active plat, or whether the PP itself is expired or cancelled - is not worth much as more than bookmark.

once you cancel your Plat card, your priority pass card is canceled too. Use it as a bookmark.
You can only use the plat card at delta/usair/aa before the expiration date on the plate card. After the expiration date on the plat card, use the card as a second bookmark

my Q was if the canceled priority pass has any value, being that a friend claim being able to get in with a cancelled one, and i wasnt quite sure if too believe him or not, but it does make sense to work the same way a cencelled platinum works...or maybe by just flashing the card it was enough to get in with an inexperienced front desk...

Both airports are AA hubs, and have several AA lounges, with JFK hosting the AA flagship lounge.
They're pretty nice to relax , but they tend to get very crowded at times, and I mean very very crowded!

For the time being, you can use your expired Amex Plat to enter AA Admirals Club with AA boarding passes.

Which lounge I guess would really depend on where you have extra time, or when they're less crowded.
Also, in MIA it may be (depending where your gate is) out of the way for you (as opposed to JFK).

A. IINM those two airports' AA terminals are almost exclusively AA (and a little bit of others, partners like Air Berlin, LAN), and there are only AA Admirals Club [lounges], no others.  As discussed, these are AA hubs.

B. There should be; though I don't have that info, GIYF!
There are definitely many travel sites/blogs which have reviewed these lounges with pics and all, just Google it.

For JFK, I see the Lounge Club will get me into Wingtips.  From their conditions: "Limited to six guests per cardholder - Children under 3 years are admitted free - Dress code applicable (shoes and shirts required for entry - no baseball caps allowed) - Non-smoking."  I have two kids under three.  From the above it would seem that I can admit myself, and 6 guests (i.e. 7 people), excluding kids under three.  Do you agree with my reading?

For TLV, I see Dan.  Any info regarding limits to my family size?  (I do not see anything on Loung Club's website, other than under 2 is free.)

Sweet!
It says J tickets can enter LH lounge in EWR - same terminal as LH departures (which I guess makes sense). Any idea what "departure satellite" mean? It's that as opposed to in JFK where the lounge is called "departure area".
8 lounges in FRA
2 lounges in MUC that have showers!

Seemed pretty general, they had a list of which passes got access but they told me not the UA Club Pass. I figure if I find a similar lounge at ZRH maybe it'll work. My thinking is that perhaps UA has some partners for lounges when they don't have their own lounge.

Turns out UA lounges in DEN are past security, so that's good. But they're both in Terminal B and SW flies from C. In the lounge now, we'll just give ourselves enough time to catch the train to C - much easier to estimate than having to go through security still.

Surprised there were no sodas in the lounge and alcohol cost money. Hot chocolate is Ghiradelli and OU-D.

Wanted to give a quick review on my lax - jfk - lax last week, as far as lounges went.
In lax my ticket in first on the new aa planes got me into the flagship lounge,  which is basically a separated section of the regular admirals lounge. Other than feeling special and going through fancy key card only doors,  there's not much different,  but it's much quieter and has a open help yourself bar.
Bathrooms were gorgeous.  And the showers looked nice too.

Sorry,  same pic twice there.  In jfk the flagship lounge is before security so I skipped it,  I went to the regular lounge,  shower was great after a day of running around in NY,  but otherwise I was very unimpressed,  it was crowded and no free food at all,  let alone kosher.  In lax they had chips and granola bars with a hechsher.

Another very small terminal 1 shower nice and quiet.

Terminal E does NOT have,I think this usually connects to and from TLV.  And you only have 1 hour of wifi (but you could use their computers for however long you want.)

The other 2 terminals have shower,but 1 of them has only 1 shower,it's a very small lounge.

Ink card doesn't really get you in to lounges, with an ink you can get the lounge club card, and you can check out their website  https://www.loungeclub.com/en/ Your Platinum card does get you in to lounges but with that card you can get priority pass, you can read here about it.   http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/28308

What's the lounge situation in CDG, when flying TLV-CDG-NYC/LAX on Air France? I see people have discussed foreign airlines like AA/LY, LX, AC, etc. - but it seems that when flying CDG's flag carrier itself, you connect in Terminal 2E, which (according to what I see online) doesn't seem to have a lounge altogether. :o

Does that make sense? Anybody have any experience with this?

Lounge: BUSINESS LOUNGE (INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC)

Flying AA 2395 at 04:50 PM next Sunday from LGA to MIA.
I've been to Centurion LAS thrice so when I went to the Centurion LGA I was very disappointed.
Would you recommend the Maple Leaf Lounge of the Centurion?
I don't drink alcohol so it is strictly from a kosher food standpoint.

UAL has peperidge farm milano cookies which i stocked up on and saved me when I went to italy last year. DL has kosher bagels and muffins (just ask for them, they will accommodate). AA has kosher choco chip cookies. Airspace has Chex Mix...
IME Centurion just has fruit (RIP KSML  :'( )
So wondering what MLL has...

There is a $200 statement credit, making it only $250. If you add the signup bonus in, the 10% rebate on booked awards and the discounted flights, it is not a bad deal. Especially if you were to pay ~$50 for a one time pass. Even the $99 for a 30-day pass wont beat getting this card.

Are you renting a conference room in the Sky Club for the meeting? If so, they will provide you with a gate pass to go past security.

If not, and you're just planning on going into the lounge to meet someone, why not just book a ticket right beforehand, go through security, and then cancel it?

United card you can try to PM to get your first year fee waived on the card. And other cards like Citi Prestige (which gives full AA admirals club access and priority pass) will charge $450 but give you statement credits and the like and bonus points.

UA cards would only get him into United Clubs though, and in ORD, the closest United Club is a good long walk away from AA flights. In Terminal 3, his only lounge options are AAdmirals Clubs.

Hoping this is the right  place:

Flying JFK-TLV-LGA with stops for Pessach.

Would like to have lounge access in JFK and at Ben Gurion when coming back. What are best ways of obtaining that? Cards/certificates/etc. In case I don't have the equivalent card yet, I am planning to get some new ones in March.

I was there 2 weeks ago with that card I asked around and they sent me to the panorama lounge,but there's no showers there.

Go to Swiss lounge D that's in the main terminal before going on any trains.
I checked in at "check in 3" and it was right after that before passport.
It's a beautiful lounge and they accepted my lounge club card.

I have a Priority Pass courtesy of Amex.  Before I cancel my Amex card in a few weeks, I'd like to try out the Air Canada lounge at LGA.  (I've never been to a lounge.)  It's landside, so can I get in without a ticket?  Any kosher food?

Any chance that my PP will continue to work after I close my Amex account?

Yes,even if your not flying at all but just happen to find yourself airside at the airport.

Just looked up the terminals and the United lounge is in Terminal 7 and my flight with Swiss is in terminal 4 and TLV doesnt have a United Lounge so those seem useless for this trip.

You can not use the United club with the lounge club card, but you can use the lounge in JFK T4 and Dan lounge in TLV

It's big, has a bar and showers, but could use a little touch up.

(Possibly) flying next week through ZRH, both coming and leaving on LX J.

a) Is there any difference between the "Swiss Business Lounge" and the "Swiss Arrival Lounge"? http://www.zurich-airport.com/passengers-and-visitors/airport-services-en/layover-and-lounges/airline-lounges-en
One of them better?

b) Are either of those anything special? It didn't seem so from previous posts, but just wanted to check.

Just a data point:

My old lounge club card had expired 2 days before I went to JFK > Wingtips lounge and I had forgotten to put my new one into my wallet. When I entered the lounge they told me that I should call them as they only needed the new # in order to let me in. So I called Lounge Club and they try to explain to me how they don't maintain the # for passes that come from Ink and Ink would have them (sounds ridiculous to me). I call Ink and they tell me that they obviously don't maintain them as it is simply an additional bonus they provide and is handled by Loungeclub. Ink and I get Loungeclub on the line to discuss this > loungeclub says they will look into it while on the phone and after 5 min they hang up on us.

Wingtips was very friendly though and let me+wife and kids in for free.

In that scenario, it may not be so useful. I primarily use lounges when I have a long layover. Nicer place to sit, outlets, sometimes you can find some Kosher food, and wifi.

I will be flying BOS-YTZ on Porter on a morning flight. Air France has a lounge in the same terminal (Terminal E), which has access via Lounge Club card. But apparently the Air France lounge doesn't open until 1PM, which I guess makes sense for the trans-Air France flights.  Do I have any other options, besides just waiting for the free drinks on board Porter?  ;)

Depends on how much you are paying for that experience. If I have access to a lounge through one of my credit cards and the lounge is not too far from the gate, I would use it because it's quiet and relaxing. Also, if the flight gets delayed and that 45 minutes becomes an hour or more -- which happens more often then not, I would rather be sitting in a lounge than outside. 
Title: Re: airport lounges

I have searched DDF and via Google, but still can't find the direct comparison in Frankfurt:
Luxx Lounge (Terminal 1) vs. Sky Lounge (Terminal 2).
Here's what I infer from various websites:

Luxx Lounge:
Terminal 1 (which is where LH is).
Landside (before Security)

Sky Lounge
Terminal 2 (which is where BA is)
Airside (after Security)

Both allow access with Priority Pass and with Lounge Club.
Is one better than the other for kosher food? Comfort?

Our situation -- seeking advice:
We have a 4-hour layover, arriving Terminal 2 on BA and transiting to Terminal 1 for departure on LH.

I presume we will need to claim our luggage from BA in Terminal 2 and then shlep it over to Terminal 1 and re-check it with LH.  I can't imagine BA will allow us to check it all the way to BOS from LHR, because that would require them to transfer it to LH in FRA.  Is that correct?  I presume our best option is to claim and re-check the luggage, and then go to Luxx Lounge?

Thanks.

IIRC the only lounge in terminal C is a United club. They don't carry kosher food, besides the usual crackers or chocolate(maybe bagels in the morning) 

Try calling Art & Lounge,ask them to read you the paper near the food. 973-623-4350

If you take the airtrain between B and C,it should take less than 10 minutes total.

True, but it can take up to 3 business days for Amex's request to register at Priority Pass for a number and some lounges have a swipe only system, not a number input capability.

It would save me thread reading time if I knew that:

1.  AMEX Platinum card gives access to a-b-c lounges included in the "x pass program", allows unlimited free entries for y period of time. 

2.  The Ink card gives/gave access to d-e-f lounges in the "z pass program", allowing 2 free passes/year for cardholder only with additional cardholders paying $gh. 

3.  United lounges can only be accessed by ...

4.  etc.

UA Club JFK is a poor excuse for a club. It's old and tired-looking, and is generally crowded. No showers, the bathrooms aren't much better than standard airport offerings, poor selection of refreshments, worn upholstery, etc. Best one I've been to is the big one at EWR, although the renovated on in LAX comes pretty close.

Quick question about airport lounges at New Delhi (India) & Narita (Japan):

For my upcoming trip to India, I have connecting flights through Bangkok & Narita, with almost 3-4 hours of layover. I have never used airport lounges in my previous travels (never knew of this benefit of the cards), but since I have started spending some time here, I am learning new things. Recently, got Amex Platinum and Amex PRG cards. Know that Platinum can get me into Centurion lounges for free (will use it in SFO on my return flight). My understanding is that Platinum can get me Priority Pass Select membership, but it seems that there is a $27 charge for each use, even for the members (I could be wrong, posted a question in PP thread too).

I also have United Mileage Plus Explorer card that came with 2 United lounge passes.

Does anyone know if I can get into the United Club lounge in Narita using the United passes?

Any lounges in New Delhi that I can access using my United passes or Platinum card? There is a Centurion lounge in New Delhi, but it is in Domestic terminal, and I am not sure how International & Domestic terminals are connected there. Anyone have info on it?

Thanks.

I was there for over 3 hours. When I left at 12:30pm, the guy at the front desk told me that they were closing in a half hour. Check the times before you go.

Enjoy! It was pretty cool having a "hotel" room after our flight for free!

To make a long story short I was in JFK travelling out of a different terminal and went to use the AA lounge. The person at the ticket counter refused to issue a dummy BP. I then had them call the lounge and the lounge said I would have to pre-arrange. After my flight I called Citi to complain and they told me that you should've put the ticket agent on the phone and we would've sorted it for you.

To make things easier book an AA refundable.

Plat card gets you in, not PP.

do I need a boarding pass for delta? I am flying EY.

as per their site.

Customers with select Platinum American Express credit cards may access Delta Sky Clubs when traveling on a same-day Delta operated flight (does not include Delta SkyMiles co-branded American Express Platinum Card). Platinum American Express cardholders may enter the club with up to two guests for an additional fee.

Plan to travel YUL-CDG and then return CDG-YUL on Air Canada. We will have only carry-on luggage.

I have the AAdvantage Citi Executive Card and would like to be able to use the AA Admirals Club both on arrival and departure.

From my online search, it looks like Air Canada arrives and departs from CDG Terminal 2A, and the Admirals Club is located inside security in the connector building between 2A and 2C.

The Admirals Club website says, "International arriving passengers must have a valid, same-day ticket for departure permitting access through Security."

Question: Will I be able to access the Club immediately on arrival (i.e., remaining airside), or will I be forced outside security to clear immigration and customs, and then not be able to get airside past security and back into the Club?

Thanks.

I am at the premium club lounge for Ba/AA Terminal E at MIA. I gotta say if you eat non-kosher there is a buffet here that would make Greenwald caters run in shame. There are rows of hot food.....Tons of liquor/beer/drinks. Got in with AA Exec CC.

When flying into LHR T3 with AA Biz  and connecting Economy to BRU. do i get access to the T5 BA lounge? If not, is the BA lounge worth the extra points to fly biz?

Will I be allowed to use the ba lounge with a biz ticket lhr - bru, if so can I bring a guest?

For JFK:
If flying Y: Delta (with plat) and wingtips (PP) lounges.
In J: VS lounge too. 
Same applies to your AU if you added him/her as a plat cardholder, otherwise you'll be charged the guest rate. (If you added him as plat, make sure to apply for his PP, as it's not automatic.)

Effective August 18, 2016, a same-day boarding pass for all United Club customers, including members, will be required for United Club access.
Two United Club one-time passes are a benefit of your United MileagePlus® Explorer Card. Each pass is valid for one guest for one visit.

I made my 14 year old son an au on my prestige just so he could get a pp card.  Anyway I just saw on the pp website that the minimum age for membership  is 18 years old. 

This probably varies by lounge but has anyone tried this before?  Do you think they will let him and his guest in?

The age is for the membership not the lounge entry. Once you get the actual membership you will be fine.

Older daughter is 16 and has Plat and PP.

Better to bring physical card or just the number.
Names are obviously different but both unusual.
Something like Danya and Nechama.

My important question of the day:

b) What do I need to gain entrance for me and 2 more in my party?
We'll have (JetBlue) boarding passes, united one-time club passes, and a Citi AA Executive card.

Makes sense, as it is temporary. At least they're not making you sit out with the common folk.

Found out about it from an email I received today from AA about my upcoming trip (Friday morning).

I guess it's better to come prepared for the worst so anything they offer is considered good.

A halfway decent lounge if you need to be right there, and if you have a few minutes, you can go to the regular full service lounge a few minutes.

The "loungebuddy" app is able to answer most of these questions very quickly.

Just tell it what CC you have and where you are flying, and it shows you all the lounges on the route that you can access, and who you can take in.

You can sort by available amenities as well.

There is an underground terminal connector. Takes about 5 to 8 minutes. Often you can catch a complimentary shuttle  cart.

Google LAX terminal map and you will see.

Often in the late evening they close security at T7 and you need to walk to T6 to go through security.

The guest policy is meant for traveling companions, not to give freebies to any two random people in the airport.

Are you being obtuse on purpose? I didn't say it was theft to enter as a guest. I said it was theft to scam one's way into a lounge using someone else's credit card/identity.

Also, quoting the terms re: guests is typical DD grifter nonsense. Anyone with 10 brain cells knows the intent of the guest policy is for traveling companions to have access, or maybe even someone the person met in the airport. It's certainly not for the cardholder to let any random two people into the lounge and then part ways as soon as they leave the check-in desk.

If the card holder meets someone at the airport even for 10 seconds at the airport he/she can guest them in, that is considerd a guest. And there is no rule they must be togther in the lounge.

I didn't say there was a rule — but, now that you mention it, most lounges do, in fact, have a rule requiring guests to leave the lounge as soon as the member/cardholder leaves.

Regardless, the point is, we all know that the guest policy isn't intended to be used in the way you tried to get that "nice Asian lady" to use it.

LOL. Grifters like some of you people are why benefits are getting cut left and right.

Does anyone — anyone — think Amex wants people hanging outside their lounges hassling their cardholders to guest them in?

As long you are following the rules I dont see the issue. If your moral conscience doesn't allow you to do those types of things thats fine but don't start criticizing people for taking advantage of the rules amex created and could  modify at any time if they choose.

Please. If even 10 percent more people started guesting in two random people every time they used a lounge, the free-guest privileges would disappear quickly. It's not like the guy above was going to sit at the same table as that "nice Asian lady," like a traveling companion would have done. Guesting that guy would have meant one fewer table would have been available to an actual cardholder.

I was recently at Pisa Galileo airport, I noticed the lounge there accepted both priority pass and diners club cardholders. Being I have a discover card (which shows a diners club logo), I ignorantly went into the lounge and inquired if they could swipe my card in their machine that logs in the priority pass holders and diners club members. They said no problem but warned me that I may get charged even though the machine is not a credit card processing machine but a separate machine altogether, and they don't know the fees for my foreign card that happens to show a diners club logo. I consented. After she swiped it, it showed up as a valid entry pass but reminded me if she clicks OK I MIGHT be charged an unknown amount. That's when I stopped the transaction and quickly called discover to inquire about this matter. They said they don't have any details and cannot help me. At that point I was getting close to my departure, and just gave up.

Does anyone know if I completed the transaction what charges would show on my card and if Diners Club associated with Discover would have helped in this case? TIA

Googled it just now, and all I found was someone back in 2012 saying his Discover Escape card comes with a ClubLounge membership which grants lounge access, but at $27 per person per visit, which sounds like one of the lower-level Priority Pass membership options.

It looks like it might be free for holders of the actual Diners Club card; here's the site:

https://www.dinersclub.com/clubmembers/airport-lounges#! (https://www.dinersclub.com/clubmembers/airport-lounges#!)

I looked up a bunch of lounges I've visited, and it looks like they're all Priority Pass lounges.

The program is detailed on the link above. It looks like Diners Club cardholders simply show their card at any lounge on the list, but there's nothing about Discover card being accepted.

If all one had to do was swipe a Discover card at, e.g., the Air France lounge in Houston or D.C., to get free access, there'd probably be a lot of mentions of it online. Discover certainly doesn't advertise anything like that as being a benefit.

I have used an Israeli Diners Club card at a few lounges, namely in Madrid and Larnaca (Cyprus).  CAL, the Israeli issuer, claims that a fee is supposed to be charged per entry (between $9-30 depending on location), but I have never been charged.  Neither has my wife.  Card was swiped.

Not really an issue anymore now that I have the CSR.
