    Not sure if it was targeted, but doesn't hurt to ask. there was no language on the e-mail that said it was intended for me only.

    If it was available during the grand slam period, it would have made it a more attractive hit.

    For those of you on the fence about a membership - i'm so glad i have a membership.

    I left my cell phone on the cab to the airport - and with that, i lost all my usual tools (tripit, expertflyer, flightstats) and also lost the ability to call the chariman's line.

    Tonight, after the first couple of signs of a mechanical issue - we returned to the gate and was given the option of deplaning, i rushed to the club for a backup plan. They told me that the LGA flight was oversold, but the JFK flight had room and was closer. I had my backup mapped out. I sat in the club and watched maintenance look at the engines with a flashlight (never a good sign). I went back to the gate and they were starting to let people back on the plane to reclaim their belongings. The flight wasn't officially cancelled, but they were "looking for a another plane". I ran into the club - and the agents already knew where i was going and what was going on. They snagged a first class seat for me, and booked me a nice suite before the flight was officially cancelled. With my new boarding pass in hand and my hotel voucher, i walked out of the club and saw a mob scene at special services. They officially cancelled the flight at that time.

    All the backup flights are now zero'd out - and i'm relaxing in my suite while other passengers are still waiting in the special services line.

    Don't get me wrong - the special service agents do a great job, but when there are 183 people looking to get rebooked to the same place, having club access is a priceless asset.

    If I have the Amex Platinum, there's no point to getting a membership, right?

    It depends. A club membership will allow you access to all the Star Alliance lounges internationally, which could be nice if you do some international travel and are not *G. It also allows you access to United and Continental lounges when you are traveling domestically.
