100% of travelers using airport lounges are happier than those who don’t. That’s an entirely made up fact, which seems to be the norm these days, but it could truly be correct. Airport lounges are an amazing way to change the airport forever. The complimentary drinks, food, wifi, comfortable seating areas and even the occasional shower or spa make you feel as if you’re anywhere but the place people hate the most. There are some clever ways to get in, many of which don’t cost much at all and allow travelers to maximize some real value…

Miles Or Cash For An Airline Lounge Membership…

Many US Airlines, and an increasing number of airlines, such as Cathay Pacific and Emirates are now allowing passengers to use miles or cash to purchase one off access or an annual lounge membership.
