Centurion Lounge Entry Policy is part of Freddie Awards to New Orleans Binge Weekend Trip Report which covers:
I used to love arriving in Vegas or LGA and going to the Centurion Lounge (see Amex LAS Centurion Lounge: The Full Day Freeloader Review and see Amex Centurion Lounge LGA: Welcome Back to NYC). I tried to do this in Dallas and was denied entry. The agent stated that there is no access on arrival and if there is a same day connection, access is only for two hours before departure. For flights out of DFW, access is restricted to three hours before departure. The policy isn’t even three hours before boarding which means that lounge access is closer to two hours. This policy is understandably meant to curtail crowds (see Amex Centurion Lounge SEA: Crowded as Duck!) and probably cut down on all day moochers like myself. Still, for an annual fee of $550, members should be able to go in whenever they want or for as long as they want. This experience validates why don’t regret skipping airport lounges and why I cancelled my Amex Platinum. #prioritypassforlife
What happens if your flight is delayed? Do they kick you out? What a buzzkill.
