The new American Express Centurion Lounge in Mexico City Review

Posted on May 11, 2016 by in Best use American Express Membership Rewards, Free Lounge Access and Lounge Reviews

American Express has moved their Centurion Lounge at Mexico City Airport to a position inside security – near gate 18.

The American Express Centurion Lounge in Mexico City (Review) was located outside security before and wasn’t anything to write home about.

I was a bit excited – I admit – to see the new lounge but the verdict is simple – it really just moved around….

The same old sofas and furniture and the mediocre drinks offering (those are complimentary). There is table service but any food items are charged for. Again I was visiting during breakfast hours and none of the dishes seemed appealing to me.

I really feel they could have hired a good interior architect – here are some pictures.

The Centurion lounge is small and has no natural light but it is a decent place to sit down and use the rest rooms and grab a soda. It’s a far cry from the excellent US Centurion lounges though and it is usually a better idea to go over to your airline lounge which is near the same gate.
