Video: Airport Lounge Access Explained

Have you ever wondered how to get access to airport lounges? How do you escape the chaos of the departure gate and start sipping on champagne in luxurious surroundings before every flight?

There are quite a few strategies for securing lounge access on your next trip, so let’s go over everything you need to know in this video.

Whether it’s booking business class and First Class flights, applying for credit cards with Priority Pass benefits, or earning airline elite status, you’ll never look at the flying experience in the same way once you’ve gotten a taste of the lounge life.

    Hey Ricky, what about lounge access from US cards?

    Great video Ricky. I really appreciate these posts. One thing to add, the Priority Pass 4 or 6 passes with the Visa card also get you into the Priority Pass restaurants where Amex does not. As well the Visa let’s you bring in guests so a family could bring in their partner plus 2 kids which could be advantageous in some circumstances.

      Thanks for your input Greg, all very good points. The loss of Priority Pass restaurants was certainly disappointing from Amex – one reason I’m planning to get a Chase Ritz-Carlton Card down the line.

    I have a AMEX personal platinum card. Can I do a lounge hopping by visiting Centurion Lounge with two visitor then go to Plaza premium lounge with one guest then go to Sky Team lounge with another guest? Thanks a lot.

      Yes, you may!

    My favourite lounge experience has been at Quebec City’s Jean Lesage International.
    It’s a simple, modern, comfortable lounge that feels nice and cosy. Excellent soups, breads, good wines, a central fireplace, and a view looking north over the runway with the nearby hills and forests in the background.

      I’ve yet to check out that one, but I’m looking forward to it when flying out of YQB someday.

    I love the experience and exclusivity of the Lufthansa F Terminal, however its otherwise quite small. For the lounge itself, EK F in DXB is my favourite.

    My fav lounge thus far is the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. Hoping to try the Signature Lounge at YVR later this year. Thanks Ricky for all your great content.
