Good Domestic Lounge Locations For AmEx Platinum Holders

For all those out there that have the CSR, keep in mind you only have Priority Pass which is nice for international lounges. When flying domestic, you are out of luck! This is where AmEx comes ahead with their own Centurion lounges, Delta Partnership (Only assessable when flying Delta), Airspace Partnership, and Escape lounge partnership.

I have and always will be a fan of the AmEx Platinum Card strictly for the addional lounge access it provides while traveling. Even if I didn’t get the $550 fee waiver for being in the military, I could easily justify the annual fee with $200 in airline fee waivers, another $200 in Uber credits. I would then be only paying $150 a year for access to all of these lounges below. I added only the restaurant credit Priority Pass locations. In my opinion domestic Priority Pass Lounges are very disappointing as compared to their international counterparts. I haven’t used Priority Pass domestically until they started adding these restaurant credits.

Now if you don’t already have an AmEx Platinum Card, please use my links below to apply for one. Keep in mind that if you are active duty or reservist they will waive the $550 annual fee for the Personal Platinum and even the $450 for the Business Platinum.

  1. AmEx Personal Platinum Link
  2. AmEx Business Platinum Link

I got all the information about the longes from these sources:

  1. Delta Lounge Locations
  2. Centurion Lounge Locations
  3. Priority Pass Locations at Restaurants 
  4. Escape Lounges
  5. Airspace Lounges

I have it all in a excel spreadsheet here: AmEx Lounges

Now if you wanted to look at all the domestic Priority Pass Lounges they can be found here. They are often lacking in hot food so I omitted them form the list. Really just stick with the 61 lounges listed above! Happy travels.

  1. Derp,

    great list as always. I am PCSing to 7th fleet for the first time (Singapore). Any general churning advice in preparation for this move? want to focus on Asian travel obviously. Right now I have the typical amex platniums, amex Hiltons, delta cards, my wife (2p mode) has most of the 5/24 chase cards, and I recently got the Citi American. Any general Singapore advice? thanks
