http://nyti.ms/1dd7FUE NYTimes: At This Club’s Velvet Rope, the T.S.A. A number of independent airport lounges have sprouted up at international concourses to offer services to travelers who aren’t frequent fliers. Has anyone tried this? What do you guys think about this trend. Lounges seem more efficient and accessible in Europe and Asia. Japan they have a separate security line ( domestic) which leads into the lounge. Wish America was more focussed on amenities like that.
