  1. @Me although I share your sentiment about the recent changes with the AMEX card, the good blogger mentioned that Priority Pass Select (PPS) card holders have access to this lounge. We all know one of the CSR card benefits is comped PPS card.

    The problem with the 12-8 PM access for the PPS card holders that if your flight is around midnight, you are better off going somewhere else.

  2. Priority Pass notes that KAL lounge at LAX has limit of 2 guest per cardholder…. Does this apply to CSR cardholder as well? I have an upcoming trip with party of three and I am a priority pass member thru my CSR, does this mean I could only bring one guest with me to KAL lounge?
