    Saw this, it refers to US cards but will same apply to UK platinum cards?

    “NOTE: CENTURION® LOUNGE COMPLIMENTARY GUEST ACCESS CHANGES EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2023

    U.S. Platinum Card® and U.S. Business Platinum Card® Members will be charged a $50 USD fee for each guest (or $30 for children aged 2 through 17, with proof of age). U.S. Platinum Card® and U.S. Business Platinum Card® Members will qualify for Complimentary Guest Access for up to two guests per visit after spending $75,000 in eligible purchases on their Card between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022 and in each calendar year thereafter.

    This was announced quite a few months ago, and I recall Rob commenting at the time that it was unlikely to apply to the UK.

    Something had to be done. The crowding is madness with parties entering together on one card.

    It was announced back in 2021 I think, to give people time to hit the spend target for 2022.

    Worth noting that some US Priority Pass cards come with unlimited guests. I was on a group trip in Spain once and about 10 of us got into the Palma lounge on one US pass!
