Win Airport Lounge Access From LoungeBuddy

Keep reading to find out how you can win a $100 in airport lounge credit courtesy of LoungeBuddy.

LoungeBuddy is an innovative app that — as the name suggests — is all about the airport lounge experience. It’s location based so can automatically tell which airport you’re at, and will show you the lounges nearby, along with their amenities, hours, ways to gain access, and user generated reviews.


If you load your preferences such as amenities you’re looking for and lounge memberships/status/tickets you hold, it will even automatically recommend a lounge for you. While I know most of the lounges I have access to in my everyday travels, I do sometimes find myself looking up lounges at airports I haven’t visited yet, and this app is great for that.

LoungeBuddy is adding new functionality to their app, whereby you can directly purchase lounge access from your phone:

For the first time ever, US travelers will now be able to use LoungeBuddy to purchase instant airport lounge access from their iPhone with just a few simple taps.

No memberships, elite statuses or premium seat purchases are required.

Instant lounge bookings will be available in 20 of the busiest airports throughout the world, including major hubs in the United States like Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Atlanta (ATL), Seattle (SEA), Philadelphia (PHL) and Los Angeles (LAX). LoungeBuddy will continue to roll this functionality out to more partner locations within the US, Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia.

At present, lounge bookings can be made at seven airports in the US, and over a dozen in the UK using the iPhone version of the app. Functionality will be rolling out to Android users at a later date.

The Alaska Airlines Board Room (and pancakes) can now be accessed through LoungeBuddy

To celebrate, LoungeBuddy is giving all readers $10 in credit using the code “onemileatatime — just enter that code in the account section of the app to receive the credit.

Anyway, I have no financial relationship with them and am in no way being compensated for this post, though they did offer to give away $100 in credit to two readers of mine. They offered me $100 in credit as well, but I’m throwing that into the pot for one of you guys to claim, so there’s $300 up for grabs!

To enter to win, simply comment using the widget below telling me your favorite airport lounge. You can earn extra entries by visiting the One Mile At A Time or LoungeBuddy Facebook pages, or following either of us on Twitter.

  1. I can’t say I’ve visited a lot of lounges… but strangely maybe I’d say I prefer the one in Budapest. Definitely not the best in terms of amenities or anything but just because it’s so small and so quiet, I always felt good there. And it’s just a few feet from the usual gate to LHR.

  2. My favorite lounge hands down is the Air France La Premiere lounge in Paris. The limo service is spectacular (and fascinating to see the airport from a completely different perspective!), security/customs takes less than 1 minute, and the overall service is impeccable. Not to mention that the entire experience is incredibly private. Highly recommend!

  3. Best one for me is the new United Global First at Heathrow’s Queen’s terminal 2. I was treated like a queen!!

  4. Favorite lounge I’ve been to probably is Amex plt at DFW. Haven’t been able to try the great ones in Asia yet but hopefully soon!

  5. BA Concorde Room at LHR…cabanas could use some sprucing up, but they are a nice space to spend some private time with your raveling companion between flights!

  6. Not too many lounges, but for a standard North American lounge, can’t go wrong with the Maple Leaf Lounge transborder at YYZ

  7. Lufthansa First Class Terminal – and I’m not just saying that because you make such a big deal about it.

  8. The nicest that I’ve been to recently is China Airlines in TPE. Skyclubs are starting to improve but it’s rolling out too slowly.

  9. I have only been to the Admirals Club lounges with my AA Exec card. Hopefully that $100 credit will allow me to broaden my horizons!

  10. The best answer is clearly the first class terminal in Frankfurt. One of the few places I’d purposefully take a longer layover to enjoy.

  11. Amex Centurion Lounge at DFW. Got bumped on my flight to AUS , after originating in LGA, and wound up renting a car and driving. The staff at the lounge are phenomenal and handled the rental car reservation flawlessly. Not to mention the free cocktails were excellent as well!

  12. I think I should win this one because I haven’t visited enough lounges to have a good fav since I only get access through limited credit card options. I think they are all fabulous compared with spending my time out in the boarding area. However, loved the Cairo airport VIP lounge for comfy chairs and good food.

  13. CX Lounges in HKG are my favorite, but I think there are some lounges in Europe that are probably better.

  14. So far my favorite lounge will be Emirate First Class Lounge after visiting Thai First Class Lounge, Singapore Private Room, LH First Class Terminate and CX Wing.

  15. TG Royal First lounge at BKK!

    Their hospitality, facilities, foods, everything’s great.

    I’d like to take TG only for the lounge service.

  16. Just about any one of them is better than sitting in the terminal. My favorite used to be the TWA Ambassador Club at JFK but we all know how that worked out. Now I’d have be say I’m partial to the United Club at ORD.

  17. The Emirates A380 First Class Terminal in Dubai (even though I’ve yet to go, but I dying to try it out)

  18. My favorite lounge is a tie between any LH First lounge, not just the First Terminal, and THAI First at Bangkok.

  19. Aeroflot lounge at SVO because they are the only lounge I have been in that serve cherry juice! SO delicious!

  20. I’m just now learning so much about lounges. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit my first one in February in Japan. 😀

  21. Favourites: EVA Infinity Lounge TPE, Amex Centurion Lounge DFW, BA First BKK, AA Flagship JFK and for personality (Colleen) Adirals Club YYZ.

    BUT BEWARE the (generally wonderful) Lounge Buddy app if you’re using YYZ. It does not present useful or truthful information about which lounges are available in YOUR ZONE of the airport. If you’re in Terminal 3, it shows you all lounges in Terminal 3 and doesn’t tell you that most are off-limits to you because you’re in the US-bound zone, or the International-bound zone, or the Domestic-bound zone. No zone-crossing is permitted but the app doesn’t acknowledge that. Same issue in Terminal 1. Sadly it makes the app more limited at this stupidly designed airport. I’ve exchanged messages with Loungebuddy about this but they said fixing this would be inconvenient for them. Hm, maybe their word was “difficult”. Or maybe “challenging”. I guess there’s a difference. Or a distinction. Or maybe both.

  22. Centurion Lounge at SFO. (As my home airport, it’s so great to finally have a reliably nice lounge to use.)
