Which lounge access should I get?
Ok, so, like I mentioned in my previous question, I am traveling with my family (4 people total) to Bangkok this coming June flying Qatar coach.
My question is, what lounge access should I get? I know there are some credit cards out there that offer different “brands” of lounge access.
My doubt comes from reading on two different websites (one world and the Miami airport pages) that Qatar departs from terminal E and from terminal D respectively. Kind of confusing if you ask me…
So, which lounge (s) would you recommend I get?
By the way, Qatar stops at Doha, so trying to get posibly just one membership if at all possible…
I love this blog and this forum!
Coach usually means no lounge access unless you have credit cards or elite status. What cards/elite status do you have?
Since I am just starting I don’t have either status or cards to get lounge access. Considering where I am departing from Miami to BKK (not sure due to the conflicting info on the departing terminal), I would like to hear suggestions on which card would be the best for lounge access (doesn’t look like I will get any status any time soon).
Not sure what lounges are in the terminals mentioned as the ones where Qatar departs from (D, E?)
Well D & E are connected, so that shouldn’t be an issue. But, I’m pretty sure Qatar uses Terminal E exclusively, as that is where the Business Class lounge is. International flights arrive at D, which might be where the confusion is.
Anyways, your only option really is Priority Pass. I’d recommend getting it through the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Citi Prestige, since those allow guesting privileges for free (AMEX Platinum does not).
If you fly out of Miami regularly, you could look at the Citi Executive American card, since that gives you Admiral’s Club access. But, that wouldn’t help you much in Doha or Bangkok.
[USER=1436]@rickyw[/USER] thank you so much for the clarification! I was really confused as to where the flight departs from…
I guess priority pass it is 🙂
