  1. Hi Ajay

    Diners Club HDFC Jet Privilege black card and Diners Black card are not being accepted at chennai TFS Lounges and they are redirecting members to the new Copper Chimney Lounge of Taj which is not upto the standards.

    queries raised to HDFC have also not been fruitful as they do not know of this either, may be you could throw some light on this, is it only for Chennai that all cards except priority pass are not entertained in TFS now.

  2. Hi Ajay,

    This site will serve as a very useful reference one can look up before travelling.

    I have the following information about the Port Lounge in Ahmedabad, which I used recently. Perhaps you need to change these details.

    Firstly, it is on the air side (accessible after security). Secondly, a lounge card was given for this lounge by Air India when I travelled business class.

  3. Thanks for this info Ajay. Make one correction please. I just returned from Bhubaneshwar yesterday and had gone by your chart and taken my priority pass card for the Mayfair lounge at BBI Airport. Incidently they now accept Mastercard, Visa, Priority Pass and Diners too. They don’t accept American Express any more. Please make this correction in order to help others. Being a Diners Black holder, I took the lounge instead of using my Priority Pass.
    This lounge is small but comfortable. It does not have a buffet style snack option but a rather small menu card with with some puffs, sandwiches, tea/coffee and juice. Visitors using any of the cards can order 1 snack and 1 drink. Anything extra you have to pay for.
    I had used my Diners and had a sandwich and tea. My flight then got delayed and I wanted more. Those guys conveniently told me that if I swiped my other card I would be entitled to another round of 1 snack and 1 drink. I conveniently swiped my Mastercard. Thanks again for this useful chart.

  4. Hi Ajay ,

    One curious thing that i have come across is that while Visa Infinite Cards issued in India get 4 lounge entries per calendar quarter , the visa infinite cards issued in Middle East has unlimited global lounge access for self and one guest throughout the year through LoungeKey. I wonder why this kind of differentiation in the product benefits ; maybe its because the annual fees for the infinite cards issued in India are lesser than those in the middle East .

    I recently got an infinite card in UAE and seeing the benefits of global lounge access i closed my Priority Pass account since it had a limit of 8 free lounge visits in a year .
