Clearing security might require a boarding pass departing from the terminal. For lounges inside security or immigration, you must first check your baggage and obtain your boarding pass.
    Worth a DetourNice lounge close to all the gates. Good place to get away while waiting for your flight. Even though this is an Amex lounge don’t expect all the amenities and trappings of a Centurion lounge.

    Worth a DetourThis has been rebranded as an Amex Lounge and an Amex Platinum gets you in without a Priority Pass. Not sure when this happened but it was surprising when the entrance looked like a Centurion Lounge.
