FlyerGoldII has a Canadian card. I daresay you have a USA-issued card. The benefits differ.

Thank you for clarifying. I have wanted to mean that there are PPL at 4 Canadian airports.

The Priority Pass that comes with the Canadian Amex The Platinum also allows access to the Salon Lounge at YQB as well as National Bank lounge at YUL international departure (near gate 53).

There is no MLL at YQB.

Shareholder, there are 2 PP Lounges at YEG and 3 at YVR!! The HKG Plaza arrivals, so far as I know is not a PP Lounge, but Amex Plat will get you in.

Anyone know if the Amex Plat (Canada) will get you access to the Plaza Premium lounge in AUH?

Does anyone know if the Heathrow T3 Arrivals lounge is available with AmEx Platimum? It's not listed on the AmEx site and is not on Priority Pass (T2 and T4 arrivals are)

Thanks Mia,

I read this but wanted to know if anyone had any experience with it as the Amex platimum lounge page doesn't list these lines.

American Express (USA) does not publicize the relationship with Plaza Premium. I don't know why, but perhaps it's expensive compared to their other lounge access arrangements. American Express Canada does highlight it.

I would send an email to [email protected] asking if they accept American Express Platinum for complimentary admission to that location. (If I recall correctly that space was formerly an Air Canada arrivals lounge and I recall it as fairly small. I think the location is unintuitive, because you have to walk outdoors to get there, but this time of year the brisk air helps with the overnight flight jetlag).

I can confirm the Plaza Premium Arrivals T3 (outside but now signposted) does accept the Amex Plat chargecard for entry - that's how I got in a month or so back

That said, I much prefer the Plaza Premium Arrivals lounge in T4, it's miles better in terms of food, atmosphere, space etc! If you're not in a rush, hop on the free train over to T4 and use that one

The new LHR T5 Plaza Premium Lounge also seems to not currently be accepting Priority Pass, although a feature in Business Traveller today mentioned access via the AMEX Plat.
