I hope you’re right. I would love to be the only one in the lounge!

Will b there Wednesday and following Monday. Walked past the location last week. I hoped it was open then.
Minute Suites only option for me up until now but restricted to availability and one hour. Now can do both.
Wonder if I can sneak Centurion food into the Minute Suite. Best of both worlds. 🙂
Unlike many readers I am an AA fan. Also like the CLT airport. To each their own but that’s my two cents.

This is great news!! I travel alot and have connected through several large airports just to have access to AMEX lounges. With CLT being my home town, I honestly was surprised with how many flights in a day and CLT being one of AA’s biggest HUBs that there are zero lounges here. If anyone has traveled through CLT in the last 6 months, they wil know this airport is deff undergoing an expansion plan.

Last time I was there, AA had two lounges. And, with the Citi Exec, you get free entry – assuming you are flying AA which is the PRIMARY airline in CLT.

Darn. MCO needs a Centurion Lounge or Lounges based on travel volume more than CLT.

Curious why you think that?

CLT looks to have more passengers & boardings. And CLT terminals are connected behind security, which makes it less annoying if I fly from a different terminal.

And there are priority pass lounges at MCO. At CLT, you get minute suites…

So how about Chicago ORD? you know america’s third largest city and third busiest airport

ORD continues to be the airport with the worst lounges. Not ONE SINGLE priority pass lounge or restaurant. Only thing it has is Polaris lounge. Pathetic.

There are PP lounges in Terminal 5.

But only for international flights from T 5

Right, but CLT only has the minute suites. Would be nice to have another PP lounge there.

That would be great–but come on Atlanta Hartsfield? Why doesn’t ATL have a damn Centurion lounge??

Amex relationship with Delta would impact whether ATL should have Centurion lounge

Elias

They dont have an AA presence and obviously Centurion Lounges are targeted towards AA people. There is a Delta lounge on ATL that you can access with the Amex plat.

Mike Z

Because there are already 85 Skyclubs there and there is a good chance you’ll be flying Delta if going through there.

*87, They opened two more since you wrote your comment.

Makes sense… along with the expansion construction providing an opportunity, CLT and PHX, are the only major AA airports without a Centurion lounge at this point.

Um .. what about ORD??

PHX could def use a decent lounge, the options are pretty lackluster. Not enough international destinations for Amex though I think.

I live in Charlotte and I know the airport i going through huge expansion. They’re building a whole new terminal so won’t be surprised if this news is accurate.
