Last year American Express announced two new lounge openings for 2015 – an American Express Centurion Lounge for the Miami International Airport, and a smaller-format American Express Studio in Seattle. These two lounges will be joining the four existing American Express Centurion Lounges in Dallas-Ft. Worth, LaGuardia, San Francisco and Las Vegas.  It looks like the MIA lounge is going to be open before the SEA lounge, and there has been much speculation on when exactly the MIA lounge will open.

Centurion Lounge LaGuardia

When the press release came out on May 6, 2014 announcing the MIA lounge, they said they had hoped to open the approximately 8,000 square foot lounge located in the North Terminal at the site of the old British Airways Lounge “by the end of 2014”.  Well, since that didn’t happen, we put in a “Media Inquiry” on when the MIA lounge might open.

American Express responded, “Right now, we are aiming to open late spring. As soon as we have a more specific timeframe, I can let you know.

Bottom Line:

This is just another fantastic benefit of having The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express – apply here.  All you have to do is show the agent your boarding pass (for that day,) your ID and your Business Platinum Card® for complementary access to the Centurion lounges.

I can’t wait for the lounge to open.  If all is to be believed, it should be open in the next 8 to 10 weeks. Is anybody familiar with this site of this lounge, rumored to be by gate D-12? Has anyone seen construction or progress towards opening?  And who else is excited by this lounge?

  1. The more the better! I’m based in SEA and I’ll tell you right now the “Centurion Studio” will be packed like a can of sardines. Too bad there wasn’t room for a full format lounge. Though it is Alaska Airlines’ hub and Priority Pass Select will get you into the Board Room so should take some pressure off the Studio.

  2. Everytime I go through dallas ; we try to visit . I have never been disappointed . Hopefully ; Miami will open soon .

  3. We were just in Miami and the CONSTRUCTION hasn’t even started for this lounge. I was extremely disappointed. I flew in to Miami from New York so I could experience this new lounge that was supposed to open up five months ago.
    I am extremely disappointed with the Platinum card. In the past, I had access to US Airways and American and could bring in two guests. Now I only get Delta and can’t bring in a guest. I only receive one membership reward for every dollar I charge while other cards give additional points for groceries, cell phone bills, etc. The $450.00 fee has increased but my benefits have not.

  4. I just spoke with staff at the Centurion Lounge at LAS and was told the lounge in Miami is complete, and is soft opening any day now. It should be open in the next week or two.

  5. The signage is up in the concourse and the Club looks to be ready to launch. Only a handwritten sign on the elevator saying “Club not open” between the concourse and the Centurion Club. Looks to be no more than a couple of days from opening.
