It's legit -- basically $100 + $24/visit (or 10 free for $150 more, or
unlimited for $300 more) for the entire range of random lounges, some
Northwest, some off-labels like Plaza Premium (in Asia), prolly Diner's
Club, etc. But it gets the basic job done.
I'm waiting to see the detailed list -- the site only tells you whether
an airport is in the network, not necc. which particular lounge.
Nevertheless, it stands to be a much better deal than the
single-airline lounges (unless, of course, you're also a VIP on that
particular airline -- I just ran into a friend who parlayed 1K and
first-name rapport with the Red Carpet concierge at JFK into a Concorde
flight... from a $150 economy reservation they screwed up!)
Let me know if anyone's interested -- there may be a $10 referral
bounty my friend can cash in on.
