After spending (a rather miserable) 30 minutes in the AMEX lounge, I headed over to the United Club which is about a 10 minute walk from the AMEX Lounge. Most of the lounges are together in one place in Mexico City airport, however the AMEX one happened to be in a completely different part of the airport.
I visited this United Club last year, however it seems like this time they opened a new section of the lounge.
When you walk into the reception of the lounge, it seems like they point you to which section of the lounge you should use. There is a ‘left’ section and a ‘right’ section, last year I was sent to the right section and this year to the left section. It is interesting why they do this, I clearly saw people in the ‘right’ section and asked why I shouldn’t go there and there was no reply from the lounge agent; she just told me to go to the ‘left’ section.
I grabbed some Hot Chocolate (which was actually quite delicious) and some cookies and connected to the free WiFi to get some work done.
Both ‘sections’ of the lounge look identical, they both have the food and drink area and the same type of seats. I don’t see why they are separating this lounge into two sections.
The left section of the lounge had a nicer view, as you could see the runways and planes would land and take-off. If I remember correctly, the other section didn’t have a view at all. Overall, a nice United Club with a good variety of drinks and snacks, I just find it very puzzling why they separated the lounge into two sections.
