“Obviously the Lounge is a great asset, certainly if your flight is delayed. Usually you would just end up waiting at Schiphol and this is a lot more comfortable. I'm also the kind of person who likes to be on time and I really hate missing flights. That means I can often be hanging around for an hour, just waiting. Now I can have a cup of coffee and a sandwich, there's no extra charge for that in the Lounge. I can often get a few emails written there too, which I really like. It's a great place, there's no other way to describe it.
And the speed really is incredible sometimes. Once I got really lucky after my flight, we landed at Schiphol and of course I went straight through the iris scan. Then my suitcase was the first one on the baggage belt. It only takes a couple of minutes to get through when that happens. And it's great that you don't have to wait at the border passage.
As an extra, I also have Global Entry and in the US that really is a huge relief. I still remember the first time I landed in the States with Global Entry and could just walk right past the long queue. I had to do an interview about my work and I was an hour early. I could wait there and then I had the interview. After that, I had to put my luggage through security again. The people behind me in the queue were from the same plane.”
