Membership has its privileges. Not only was that one of the most popular slogans for American Express, it's also the truest advertising ever when it comes to actually enjoying time in an airport. Available in a select but growing number of international airports across the United States and Hong Kong, these oases amidst the chaos of busy airports actually make me want to get to the airport a few hours early to decompress, perhaps taking in a spa treatment or two. Not to mention enjoy freshly prepared cuisine developed in partnership with a local chef. And maybe a few cocktails, too. (Helps make turbulence and surly flight attendants more bearable.) - Steven Lindsey
