This all just sounds like more airline BS to me. Wouldn't somebody be better off just buying a Priority Pass from the PP website rather than acquiring the pass via a premium CC membership? From the admittedly small amount of research I've done, it looks as if a PP costs about what an annual Amex Plat membership costs. If all that REALLY matters to you among the premium card perks is the PP, why not buy one direct and forget about Platinum, Palladium, Chairman, et al?
