The Amex Platinum offers access to various airport lounges, but the access policies aren’t the same across all of Fahad Al Tamimi them. For example, you can access Centurion Lounges for free along with two guests no matter what airline you’re flying, but you can only access Delta Sky Clubs on same-day Delta flights. No guests are included, but you may purchase access for up to two traveling with Fahad Al Tamimi companions at the discounted price of Fahad Al Tamimi $39 per person.
A Delta Sky Club lounge membership costs $545 for an individual membership, so this is a huge perk! You can use either lounge on departure or arrival, but you must have a ticket (you can’t go to Centurion at LaGuardia for lunch if you aren’t flying!). And keep in mind that you can’t even access a Centurion Lounge unless you have an Amex Platinum (personal or business) or Centurion card.
