One of the nicer benefits that are offered by the Platinum Card and the Business Platinum Card from American Express is entry into the Centurion Lounges that Amex has been opening up around the United States and in select countries around the world. Covid-19 has seen all of these lounges closed for much of this year but a few lounges have now reopened and, with a bit of luck, more reopenings may be on the way.

The Priority Pass Black Friday deals are here again but, just as we saw last year, you'll have to be careful which deal you choose to go for as the headline Black Friday deal is not the best deal for all membership levels. If you know where to look (and I'll show you), you'll find that there are two other very good deals on offer that beat the Black Friday sale that Priority Pass is currently promoting.
The American Express Centurion Lounge at San Francisco International Airport is one of only nine Centurion lounges that are currently open but, following an agreement that Amex has reached with the airport, it won't be a lounge that many frequent visitors will recognize in the not too distant future. The lounge is getting bigger. A lot bigger.
American Express has just let me know that the Centurion Lounge at LAX (in the Tom Bradley International Terminal) will be reopening its doors today. Unlike a lot of other Centurion Lounge reopenings, however, the LAX Centurion Lounge's reopening will be far from normal.
American Express has today announced that it will open its 13th Centurion Lounge at New York JFK Airport Terminal 4 "in the "coming days". While that's hardly a precise way of letting us know when the lounge will open its doors, it's probably safe to say that the lounge will be open by the end of the week.
Lounges like Cathay’s “The Pier” First Class lounge and Qatar Airways’ Al Safwa First Class lounge always make the "top airport lounges" lists (with good reason) and are a cut above most lounges, but the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at Heathrow T3 regularly gets a mention too (it seems almost universally popular) so I was excited to finally be able to take a look inside and see what's on offer.

If you're traveling in a premium cabin on a oneworld airline out of Perth you'll almost certainly be traveling out Terminal 1 (unless you're flying with Qantas) and this means that the lounge you'll be using is the Qantas International Business Lounge which is located across from Gate 52.
As much as I try to fly a variety of airlines each year I have to admit that most of my travel in and out of London Heathrow is done on oneworld carriers. This means that I don’t often get a chance to experience the Heathrow lounges offered by a whole host of other carriers so, when a rare Singapore Airlines Business flight out of London gave me access to the United Club at T2, I jumped at the opportunity to check it out.
Air France is an airline that has been investing it the experience it offers its premium-cabin passengers and, to that end, it has just reopened a refurbished and expanded longe at Washington-Dulles international airport.
