Weird that LAS would be so accommodating but not DFW.

Definitely true, also likely the owner of Haifa was connected somehow.

I would guess in NYC they'd have to make it Centurion only.

Even so.

Do you know how many of Unzer have Black cards?

Nah, they're saving a fortune not paying for AA/CO/US visits anyway.

I'll take your word for it

It will probably be good for Amex as the annual fees are so profitable. They should make a shteibel though

Their rent is probably much higher than the airlines are paying so I'm not sure you're right.

In DFW AA was complaining that AMEX was getting lower rent for their club per sq ft than AA.
AMEX was paying out massive sums for lounge visits.  I guarantee that went way down and will go down ever more when DL stops taking guests.

If that's true, why didnt they built their own lounges 10 years ago like they do in other countries?

Sounds like theyre arguing a technicality, not that the actual cost was really lower. Unless airport charges airlines more because their necessity is greater.

Because it was easier to punt it off.  Now that the airlines are locked up with other banks (and AMEX not even able to control Delta) it was time to build it out on their own.

I fully expect LGA will have KSMLs on hand and odds are that more people will get Plats because of that.

They'd need a massive lounge to accommodate all of the plats

Is it worth it to have such an expensive lounge in a domestic only airport? I would say International flights are the ones that people are early too or have connection where lounges come in early. Domestic flights are alot of business travelers or families traveling and getting to the airport a few mins before flight. I mean who has time to hang out in a lounge on every hop to DC, MIA or CHI?
