工欲善其事, its prerequisite
The trip, the flight path is the, DFW-FLL, MIA-STT, STT-SJU, SJU-MIA-DFW, bold red airport which can eat and drink mix (tip down slightly here, generally only starting or transit lounge at the airport, a handful of airports have reached customer lounge, and then there are the small airport there is no lounge).
DFW's official website can be found at the airport Lounges, where my main concern
AA Admirals Club (A24, B3, C20, D24) – Citi Prestige/Citi AA Exec
Amex Centurion Lounge (D17) – Amex Plat
Delta Sky Club (E22) – Amex Plat/Amex Delta Reserve
The Club at DFW (D21) – Chase Ritz-Carlton/Priority Pass Select – Citi Prestige/Amex Plat
MIA's official website can be found at the airport Lounges, where my main concern
AA Admiral Club (D30, D16) – Citi Prestige/Citi AA Exec
Amex Centurion Lounge (D12) – Amex Plat
SJU Lounges I focus
AA Admirals Club (Terminal C) – Citi Prestige/Citi AA Exec
Avianca Operated by Global Lounge (Terminal C) – Chase Ritz-Carlton/Priority Pass Select – Citi Prestige/Amex Plat
Needed meal card
The last item mentioned the various lounges, is to eat in the lounge mix mixed drink meal card required.Specifically, there are so few
- Amex Platinum
- Citi Prestige
- Chase Ritz-Carlton
- Citi AA Executive
- Amex Delta Reserve
- Chase UA Club
- Priority Pass Select
Of course, the final Priority Pass can Select from Citi Prestige and Amex Platinum to get.
Dallas (DFW), TX
Since my first leg DFW-FLL is 15-7 in the morning, so when I arrived at DFW, probably around 6 …Didn't have breakfast (at a Hampton Inn in Dallas offer only breakfast to 6 points, and in order not to miss the plane for five o'clock checkout.), So our lounge at this time requirement is that, as long as there is a hot food on the line …At that time, we have two options, one is the use of Citi Prestige benefits, enter the AA Admirals Club; the other is to use Amex Plat welfare into the Amex Centurion Lounge …I do a little homework before, and found them for the AA Admirals Club was mixed, but Amex Centurion Lounge, other than less, are unanimously praised …I also wanted to go to the Amex Centurion Lounge, there is time to go to the AA Admirals Club around …
Of course, the end result is, and don't have time to go to the AA Admirals Club was …With some regret, but when I went to Miami after the AA Admirals Club, knew this was the right decision …
American Express Centurion Lounge
Presentation on DFW Centurion Lounge, you can see the official page
The Lounge is in a corner of the second floor, electricity went up the escalator, then was at the door like this:
Front desk is like this:
And because this trip is at the end of the holiday period, send small gifts to each of us at the front desk (Bao and a box of chocolates, a charge):
Of course, we are most concerned about feeding problems, so here, the buffet area is this:
While we are still relatively early, when it was early on they did not, so the buffet area is empty …After earlier, is this:
Then I said here earlier said he was in favour of …
After sated, went to boarding …This Lounge is near our gate, go directly to it.
Miami (MIA), FL
As mentioned before, we did not experience the AA Admirals Club DFW, so we decided to try MIA …And I now regret the decision.
American Express Centurion Lounge
Presentation on MIA Centurion Lounge, you can see the official page
Here I would like to ridicule this lounges not half far from security …Of course, MIA's Terminal d is a rectangular design from start to finish is very long, so trains can sit, so you can save lots of …However, the day I arrived, and trains maintenance …WTF。
Closer to home, the Lounges to keep the Amex Centurion Lounges's style and high standards.To enter the lounge need elevators.
And the entrance is like this:
Only the meals concern, because when we go to dinner, so is this:
Pudding, shiitake mushroom chicken (really mushroom chicken) …Tasted pretty good …And the window of the Lounge is the airport so good view..AA Admirals Club is better than going to say the least.
American Airlines Admirals Club
Admirals Club presentation on MIA, see the official page
1.5 hours of your flight when we got out Amex's lounges, ready to go to AA lounges to go out …
Here again under the MIA's d-Terminal, and is too damn long..
Admirals Club had to say, covers are very large, spacious lots than Amex lounges.The Club entered the after checkin, you want to take the elevator up to the second floor.There are stairs to go next.
There really is crowded:
Knock the Admirals Club meals are enough gritty ugly …Free with one cookie, and cheese …Sandwich what is Yes, have to buy your own …
And then maybe this Admirals Club does not rely on Windows and lights Dim because of personal feeling inside is suppressed completely than Amex lounge …This also leads to the next at SJU time, I skipped to Admirals Club, and went to PP Select lounge …MIA again when you turn back to DFW, had not visited the Club and Amex only resting lounges..
P.S. Under the AA MIA-DFW last daily flight delays, disastrous …Average 1+ hours later, has there …2.5 hours late in the day …We come out at Amex lounge to close …But AMEX Lounges, bar drink and watching is good …NCAAF Baylor-UNC your day is.
San Juan (SJU), PR
As mentioned above, although SJU Lounge can be used by us and we choose, but I skipped directly to the Admirals Club, went straight to the PP Select Lounge.
Avianca operated by Global Lounge
Introduces on the SJU Global Lounge, you can see the official page
After the lounges is in Terminal c, where the first corner, there is a lift, go to.
Since I did not want to take pictures, only one is food …Figure slightly so shamelessly stolen official website …Haha …The lounge when it is like this:
And then the dining area and the bar is like this:
And then day food pasta, taste is also acceptable:
The lounge also has a room that can sleep for, there are several ergonomic sofa bed, very good …
The lounge style I liked, and sofa bed are saviors …Was really sleepy …In particular the eating after …
P.S. After waking up, this lounge buffet add spring rolls, delicious …Just waking up, it's time to go to boarding, no photos …
P.P.S. Wants to enter the lounge, with Priority Pass you can Select …Amex Plat as well as Citi Prestige sends PPS …Difference between PPS include only my Amex Plat send free unlimited, accompanied by 27 knife per person.Citi Prestige free PPS include himself and two colleagues..I use Citi Prestige belt in PPS slightly.
In this experience, although smaller samples, only experienced two Amex Centurion Lounge, an American Airlines Admirals Club and a Priority Pass can Select to enter the Global Lounge …Let me sort, it is clear that the AA Admirals Club can only worship with a back seat anymore …Then I think Amex Centurion Lounge has a slight advantage over Global Lounge,Amex Lounge Bar with bartenders, and something to eat …But Global Lounge sofa bed is a big plus …
If you want to wait in the airport, when experience is not the same as the Terminal, may wish to apply the above mentioned "lunch card" then …
Presentation on Amex Plat, you can see the ymlulu article "AMEX Platinum–high-end benefits card"
Of course, I personally preferred the Citi Prestige, later in the article describes, so stay tuned.
