Welcome to SAN Airport’s best kept secret.
Headed to the airport and have some time to kill? Need something printed at the last-minute before you jet off? The other SAN airport lounges are over crowded? Say no more…… let’s take a look inside the Air Space Lounge at SAN airport that is already a part of the American Express Platinum Benefits.
Air Space Lounge
Location: San Diego Airport
Located between Terminal 2 East security and the bridge to Terminal 2 West, The Airspace Lounge was the former San Diego Admirals Club. Recently renovated, the floor-to-ceiling windows and white furniture offers an open feel to this relatively smaller lounge. The airplane views are breathtaking if you manage to grab one of the window seats. Check out our video review!
Once inside, the check-in desks are located in front. As you walk into the main lounge area, to the left are some comfortable, compact lounge chairs that open up to the dining room and bar area. The food and non alcoholic beverage station is located right in the center of the lounge and it’s well stocked with usual lounge snacks like: cheese, crackers, carrots and celery sticks and bread.
Other lounge amenities include: complimentary WiFi, Business Center and even a nice shower.
The bar is well stocked and have plenty of space to sip a cocktail and watch airplanes take off and land. Charging outlets are plenty right below the bar and in the seating area as well.
As a part of the American Express Platinum Benefits guest, you will receive $10 food and beverage credit from the lounge menu.
If you’re looking to dine in the lounge, food items include charcuterie plates, a breakfast sandwich, smoothies, wraps and some dessert selections are available on the menu. We opted for the Charcuterie and Cheese Plate.
The menu items are reasonably priced and offers a limited selection for breakfast, lunch and all day snacks.
A solid option for those of us with the AmEx Platinum Charge Card from American Express. The free $10 F&B credit covers most items from the menu. The lounge wasn’t packed like most other Priority Pass lounges however, Japan Airlines and British Airways utilizes this lounge for their business class customers so depending on the time of day, it could be a little crowded. A great view and bar make up for any downsides.
