    Was in PHL this past week and the lounges were already pretty full when I got in at 15:30 for a 18:30 flight. Queues were quite long when I peeked over, so I assume most centurion lounges are still full, even after the changes to guest access.

    Seating and layout was also somewhat decent but didn’t really feel like it was any better than other PP lounges I had been to, so maybe the food is the good thing about them? Is PHL just one of the worse ones?

    Been in 3 other Centurion lounges across the US and all were really busy, some had a wait and queue to enter so its the norm.

    I was in the Centurion lounge in GRU on Friday and it’s slowly becoming one of my favourite lounges. Was really dissapointed when the obvious Priority Pass option changed management a few years ago as they brought in restricted access (23:00 – 14:00) but I’ve now grown very fond of the Amex lounge. It’s been virtually empty my past two visits, especially in comparison with London Airport lounges.

    Easy access, numerous seating options including the secluded beach area, a children’s room, plenty of showers, decent food, good cocktails and super clean and tidy (possibly a 1:1 ratio of guests to staff).

    Tried to get into the Centurion lounge in Houston IAH 2 weeks ago but was quoted a wait time of 30-45 minutes – unless you had Centurion card or top status with a particular airline cant remember if it was United or Delta

    The PHL Amex Centurion Lounge is much better than it was a few years ago, which was a complete free for all with people everywhere and great difficulty finding seats, especially for a family.

    They now restrict numbers, so find that we usually need to add our name to the waitlist, but I usually get a text to invite us in about 5–10 min later. Much prefer this to the previous chaos, although the food and drink offering remains lacklustre in my view.

    The entry allowance is still too generous. I’ve never been in a Centurion lounge in the US where I didn’t have to share a table with someone already there. And despite that sounding like the setup for a romcom, still single!
