Mexico City is home to my new favorite American Express Centurion Lounge. I enjoyed a great massage, shoe shine, haircut, and meal between Aeromexico flights. Talk about a productive layover!
The Mexico City AMEX lounges are run a bit differently than most. I visited the Terminal 2 lounge. Food is all a la carte and not complimentary, though Platinum and Centurion card members have access to a special menu.
But massages are free…at least a 15-minute massage for each passenger on a first-come, first-served basis. I was able to snag a massage without much hassle.
I noticed a full salon and asked if I could get a haircut as well. No problem…and it only cost about $8. I’m not posting pictures of my haircut, but I think it came out well.
As I working, a man stopped by table and asked if I would like my shoes shined. Sure, why not? He did a superb job.
Service also shined: a young man named Andreas served as my waiter and was incredibly attentive.
How was the food? I had a bowl of chicken soup and pizza, and both tasted excellent (but yes, the pizza was quite greasy).
Internet worked well, showers were available, coffee was good: I really could not ask for anything more.
I will post a full review with more pictures when my trip reports begins later this week. But this lounge surprised me in a very good way and turned out far better than the Aeromexico lounge I would visit after.
