    2014 Centurion Benefits

    Well, I'm in terminal 5 at LHR and Centurion gave me fast track through security. Worth the annual fee, I don't think so. Does anyone know if the Mandarin Oriental benefits have gone? If so, what's left.

    Just tried to book the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Bangkok for 2 nights in October. Was told by " executive" that the free night for paid night deal is only valid until the end of September. Is this true?
