As my trip to Las Vegas comes to an end, I headed to Harry Reid airport located in the south of the city.

Today’s itinerary

Check-in and ground experience

I checked in for my flights to Los Angeles and Boston the day before my departure. I had asked to be on standby on the flight before the one I had initially booked, but since standby is in economy, I asked to be removed from the standby list.

I received my Passbook boarding passes but with an error message. I could not get my PDF cards either, and after contacting American Airlines social servicing on Twitter, I was advised to pick up my boarding passes at the airport.

I received several notifications during the day of increasing delays, about 30 minutes delay when I leave the hotel.

I arrived at the airport about 2.5 hours before my theoretical flight departure, with an Uber from my hotel.

As advised by the AA customer service, I went to a kiosk to print my boarding passes, which printed without any problem, and I went to the TSA control to clear securityI was however be refused because in the security systems, I was supposed to be on my previous flight on which I was standing by… So I went back to the check-in counter where a hostess will put putting my file back in orderthen did another attempt this time successful at the TSA.

Location and welcome

The lounge is located in concourse D of the airport. It is also the departure concourse of my flight.

To access this area, you need to take an automated shuttle and then go back up to the departure level. The entrance to the lounge is easily recognizable with the American Express visual identity.

The welcome was courteous, and the clearence was granted after verification of the American Express Platinum or Centurion card, a piece of ID and a boarding pass for a flight leaving in less than 3 hours, regardless of the airline.

Lounge design

The lounge was very busy, as almost no lounges are available on the platform, so many passengers even if they have status, fall back on this option.

The decoration is nice and the spaces are numerous. It was hard to take pictures because of the very attensance during my visit.

Dedicated spaces were available for phone calls, meetings, and Centurion members.

Catering

The food and beverage offering was quite complete. In addition to a full complimentary bar that offered cocktails, wine, beer, and mid-range spirits, there was a hot and cold buffet with nice qualitative options.

Bottom line

A pleasant wait, and a long one since my flight will end up being delayed by more than an hour.
