What to know about Airport Lounges?

Airline lounges are an invaluable resource to the frequent traveler. When times are tough and stressful, they are an excellent resource to recover and when you’re on a leisurely vacation they are a great way to get your travel started in luxury.

Membership

Most airlines have frequent traveler or other reward-based programs where you are entitled to a whole retinue of upgrade options and improved meal and beverage choices. Of course, these are well-known additions to getting better seats for a fraction of the cost of upgrading your seats on an individual basis. These perks are great on their own and very popular, but common among them is a way to gain entrance to these airport lounges. Some airlines have different degrees of luxury and freebies, corresponding to different degrees of membership, such as whether one is a first class member or a business class member or how often they fly or whether they are using the particular airline credit card or other loyalty reward.

Members of the lounge will find some great customer service and personal attention that they might not get from the main gate personnel which can be a very welcome change of pace.
