    Article: Amex Reopens Australian Airport Lounges

    The staff will swipe your card at entry. They don't put a charge on it. I assume their system just checks if you have valid entries to use. Yes you should have 4 entries. A reminder that kids under 17 get in for free.

    If they were going to extend it, I would've thought they'd have announced it by now. Suck for people who can't travel last minute because of Covid.
