Here’s a first, that a reader emailed in. He was denied access to the new American Express Centurion Studio at Seattle, due to overcrowding. Apparently there were many others being turned away as well and told to come back later.
Being Denied from the Amex Centurion Lounge Seattle
According to him, the lounge is only allowed to have 100 people in it at a time, and it was over capacity and this American Express Platinum cardholder was denied entry. He was given a $20 Starbucks gift card for the inconvievnce and told to come back in about 20 minutes.
Looking at the gift cards, it says The Centurion Studio on it, making me think that this a common occurrence here.
Has anyone else ever been denied access to the Studio before? What are your thoughts on this incident? Feel free to comment below.
