Is it because the Amex travel portal use to give 1ppd for booking on there?
That bonus must have expired.

Suggestion for forum - should '- May 2015' be removed from this thread title to just make it an ongoing generic Amex Plat benefits query thread?

OK to my May 2019 query - any experiences at all where a Supp Cardholder travelling alone has used their card to Access VA Lounge and been subsequently pulled up / sanctioned? (Access via Plat Card technically restricted to Primary Cardholder + 1 Guest travelling together only). TIA :cool:

Do they scan the card on entry or do you just show it to them?

they do something on their computer. not scan though
I understand they probably wouldn't have time to track you on the spot but I thought AMEX would pick it up in their reconciliation process - I have Supp holders who have used it - best to just shut up I guess - I might just delete previous post too.

RE: VA access

I got asked once “With such long expiry dates on the card, what do they do if you don’t pay the fee, make you send it back?”

She was implying i would have lounge access long after i stopped paying fees.

I took that to mean that there was no online checking happening, they just confirm it has not expired and matches the name on your booking.

I've had me + 3 supps walking in together with our cards into a VA lounge. No issues at all.

I take it that the Sup Holder has not volunteered any information that would cause being pulled up …… ?

No issues at domestic lounges at any time with any of my supps. Only issue I had when I was a supp charge holder was in HKG Centurion lounge - on entry they scanned the card, questioned me on "who's account this was" and after explaining (that I was good friends with the account holder), they let me in.
