Here’s another reason to not worry so much about reaching “special person” status with any one airline: the proliferation of pay-per-use lounges at airports, along with the ability to purchase day passes to airline lounges.
This week Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport joins the list of “The Club” locations, offering travelers complimentary snacks, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks as well as comfy chairs, work stations and a view of the airfield for a per use fee of $35. This lounge is located airside in Terminal 4 and open daily from 8 a.m. to 3:30 pm.
The Club Airport Lounges are also located in Atlanta, DFW, Las Vegas and San Jose airports and welcome Priority Pass and Diners Club International program members as well.

This isn’t the only company offering pay-per-use lounges at airports.
You can find a Plaza Premium Lounge at London Heathrow, Hong Kong, Vancouver and many other international airports and Airspace Lounges can be found at BWI, JFK and CLE.
