Australia's first Plaza Premium lounges are now open at Sydney Airport's international T1 terminal – and yes, we said lounges, as in "more than one lounge".
The American Express Lounge is open only to select Amex card-holders and their guests.
However, the SkyTeam lounge allows travellers to pay their way in at the door (of course, there's free entry for eligible passengers on SkyTeam alliance airlines including first class, business class and top-tier frequent flyers).
Paid access is priced at $77 for two hours and $132 for five hours, and includes use of the lounge's three showers.
Unfortunately, entry isn't available to holders of a Priority Pass, which is recognised at some but not all Plaza Premium lounges - would enjoy free entry.
