One of the popular benefits of the American Express Platinum Card is Centurion Lounge access, however these have become extremely busy as of late, which is why American Express has started restricting access to only 3 hours prior to departure, and no longer able to use on arrival.
It turns out that these lounges will become even more crowded as now Delta cardholders will also be able to access these lounges as a new benefit to one of their cards.
We shared news of Major Changes to Delta Amex Cards which includes Centurion Lounge access for Delta SkyMiles Reserve American Express Cardholders, meaning the lounges will be accesisble by even more members.
Complimentary Access to The Centurion Lounge: Delta SkyMiles Reserve Basic and Additional Card Members receive complimentary access to all locations of The Centurion Lounge when flying on a same-day Delta-marketed or Delta-operated flight.
