My flight was was going to leave within an hour after getting to the airport so there's no point of spending $50 for 1hr. . If I was a plat. I would of gone in for a while. Is everything inside complimentary? I'm assuming the booze isn't?


Everything is complimentary, although tips are accepted. This includes booze and massage services (in dfw) as well as the showers. The food is self serve so there isn't anyone to tip. There are a few items they don't display at the bar that are only offered to centurion cardholders, but even those are free, you just need to flash a black card to get them. Johnny Walker Blue is one such item.

It is a nice perk. Honestly the centurion lounges are nice enough I had no issue paying the $50 fee with my green card to get in, provided I had a couple hours. There are some pretty good bartenders at the Vegas lounge.

I also really like the shower in Vegas, since typically the day I'm leaving vegas is a fog and I didn't get much sleep the night before. So, in case I didn't have time to shower it's nice to have the option at the airport.
