LoungeBuddy reached out to us last week informing us that they have launched an Android version of their app (there is already an iOS version). LoungeBuddy, as you probably can figure out, is an app that lets you know which airport lounge you have access to in over 400 airports based on the status you have with the airline, the credit card you own, etc.
Our favorite lounge amenity before or after a long flight is a good shower! After that it’s probably really reliable wifi. This app is really handy for us when we are not flying with Oneworld carriers and need to figure out whether or not credit cards we have or the airline we are flying grants access. For example, the free Priority Pass that comes with American Express Platinum Card allows access to a lot of lounges internationally and it can easily point you to a lounge. But, did you know that if you flew Bangkok Air, irrespective of class of service, you have access to their lounges?
With the launch of the Android app, LoungeBuddy has partnered with Cathay Pacific for an awesome sweepstake!
LoungeBuddy Cathay Pacific Sweepstakes
- Key Link: LoungeBuddy Cathay Pacific Sweepstakes
LoungeBuddy and Cathay Pacific is having a pretty incredible sweepstake to promote LoungeBuddy for Android (don’t worry iOS users, you can enter too). The prize:
- Two (2) round-trip tickets in Premium Economy from any of their North American gateways (New York, Newark, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver) to Hong Kong. Cathay Pacific is our favorite airline to Asia and Hong Kong is our favorite city in Asia! If you don’t live in one of their gateways, you do have to get there yourself, but positioning flights to one of those gateways is reasonable.
- Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Silver Status. The winner will receive one year of complimentary Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Silver Status! That entitles you to access any Cathay Pacific business class lounge when flying with them. Silver status also grants you Oneworld Ruby status so when you are flying with American in the States, while it doesn’t grant you lounge access, it would allow you to check in on the business class counter, priority boarding and all the benefits associated with Ruby status.
To enter this LoungeBuddy Cathay Pacific Sweepstakes, download the app and enter by May 31st using the LoungeBuddy Cathay Pacific Sweepstakes link. You have up to 4 entries – 1 by submitting your email address and 3 more if you share on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn so do it by May 31st, 2014! You can also enter if you already have the app.
