Capital One operates its own branded lounges at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) (review here), Denver International Airport (DEN), and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD). Like most lounges, these can get extremely crowded, but Capital One now makes it possible to remotely join the waitlist and know how much time you have to wait due to a capacity tracker.

Capital One Lounge App

Access is granted to Capital One Venture X and Venture X Business primary cardholders. They can enjoy unlimited complimentary access, plus complimentary entry for two guests per visit (it costs $45 per visit for additional guests). Venture and Spark Miles cardholders receive two complimentary visits towards their account per calendar year (additional visits can be purchased for $45). All other cardholders and non-customers can enter for $65. Children under age two can enter for free with a supervising parent or guardian. Access to all amenities is included with lounge entry.

LAS Centurion Line

Through the Capital One app, travelers can find lounge details and add themselves to the waitlist if one exists. Once you are on the waitlist, you’ll get updates via text to let you know when it’s your turn. This is a much better option that standing in line like I’ve encountered at countless Centurion Lounges by American Express.

Anthony’s Take: I love these new features and hope that American Express and Chase adopt similar technology. Nothing is less premium than having to line up to enter a lounge.
