I had beforehand been underneath the impression that at the least some US lounges would open this 12 months, however that doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.
Admittedly 2023 is only a bit over two months away, in order that’s not essentially a number of time to attend.
The Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Membership Hong Kong is now open. Most individuals most likely weren’t anticipating this to be the primary Chase Sapphire Lounge to open, however I suppose it is sensible, because it was merely a refresh of an present lounge house.
The practically 12,000 sq. foot lounge appears to have fairly good decor, although I’m curious to see what the food and drinks choice is admittedly like.
For a Precedence Move lounge, I’d say the Chase Sapphire Lounge seems to be fairly nice. I simply anticipate that we’ll have some critical crowding points at places in the US, given how widespread of a difficulty that’s with Precedence Move lounges.
