No free lunch with AmEx

This item appears on page 17 of the August 2019 issue.

As of Aug. 1, holders of the Platinum-level American Express credit card who have signed up for Priority Pass will no longer enjoy the benefit of meal credits at restaurants in airports or airport lounges, though they will continue to have access to participating lounges worldwide. Anyone with a Priority Pass from a source other than American Express will still receive meal credits.
