A couple of days ago I wrote about lounge access changes for Citi Prestige cardholders. They’ll be losing access to American Airlines Admirals Clubs in late July 2017.
I shared details of the change from Citibank, and it raised some reader questions.
Cardmembers will still have complimentary and unlimited access to over 850 Priority PassTM Select Lounges and Citi® Proprietary Lounges and we continue to explore ways to enhance the Citi Prestige experience.
Several of you wanted to know what ‘Citi® Proprietary Lounges’ refer to.
There are four airports with Citi Proprietary Lounges where Prestige cardmembers receive complimentary access.
- Mexico City
jediwho suggested that there’s also a Prague lounge (which was well regarded) however I’m told that — although it’s reflected on Citi’s Czech website — the lounge has been rebranded as a Raiffeisenbank Lounge, is no longer a Citi Gold lounge, and does not accept Citi Prestige cards for entry.
Many readers are familiar with American Express Centurion lounges in Dallas Fort-Worth, Las Vegas, Miami, New York LaGuardia, San Francisco, Houston and Seattle (studio).

Citibank does offer its own lounges. The network isn’t as extensive (American Express has international lounges too and those are gradually converging with US lounges in terms of standards, design, and offerings). You’re not going to get celebrity chef buffets. And the network is small. But it’s useful information to be aware of for sum. As they say, “now you know.”
