American Express has gotten into the airport lounge business, as they’ve been opening several of their own lounges for cardmembers around the country, called Centurion Lounges. So far they have lounges in Las Vegas, Dallas Ft. Worth, and New York LaGuardia.
American Express has announced two more lounge locations in the near future, in San Francisco and Miami. The Miami club is expected to open sometime in 2015, without an exact timeline yet.
There has been a lot of buzz about the new San Francisco club, which is much closer to completion. However, the opening date still hasn’t officially been announced (at least not by American Express).
As I shared last week, the plan was for the new lounge to open on November 6, 2014. That wasn’t in writing, however, but rather through an unofficial source.
I can now “officially” confirm that The Centurion Lounge SFO is scheduled to be opened on November 6, 2014, per a memo sent out to employees at SFO. The memo also states the opening hours for the Centurion Lounge, which will be 5AM till 11PM daily.
For what it’s worth, the lounge is scheduled to have a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30AM on November 6, 2014:
American Express will open its new lounge, The Centurion Lounge, in Boarding Area F of Terminal 3 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on November 6, 2014.
So, who’s going to be the first person to visit the lounge, given that it opens in a week?
