It will be mere minutes before this bench will be packed. You deserve more. You can better your chances by using Credit Card Benefits: Certain premium credit cards, such as the American Express Platinum Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve, and Citi Prestige, offer complimentary lounge access as one of their benefits. The exact lounges and access policies can vary by card. Day Passes: Some airlines sell day passes to their lounges, allowing travelers to access the lounge for a fee. This option is often available to passengers regardless of class of travel.

Pay-per-Use Lounges: Some airports offer independent pay-per-use lounges that are accessible to any traveler for a fee. These lounges may not be affiliated with a specific airline. But, keep in mind that lounge access policies can vary significantly between airlines, airports, and lounges, so it’s essential to check the specific eligibility criteria and any associated fees or restrictions before attempting to enter a lounge. Additionally, access may be subject to availability and capacity constraints, especially during busy travel periods.
