On the Delta Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQD) run through Mexico City, Mexico, (MEX), I visited one of the two AeroMexico Salon Premier lounges in Terminal 2.
I had access to this lounge as a result of flying multiple segments in business class on AeroMexico 737-800s. I also had access through the Priority Pass Lounge system.
AeroMexico advertises its lounges on its in-flight entertainment system.
These screenshots provide a lot of information about the Salon Premier lounges that there is no need to repeat in this post. AeroMexico IFE even pinpoints their location. The lounges are one level above the concourse.
I visited the Salon Premier lounge on the right in the diagram above. It is open from 04:00 to 00:00 daily although these times can vary depending on flight schedules.
The entrance to the lounge is left of the check-in desk.
Upon entering the lounge the bathrooms are to the right and the main seating area is to the left.
The main seating area is a large room with two circular bars at either end. Waiters take orders or people can walk up to the bar for a beverage. Just off the main seating area when first entering are several alcoves that offer quiet and comfortable seating as well as easily accessible power outlets.
The food service area is located near the rear of the main seating area on the right. The buffet had only light snacks when I was there.
For a Priority Pass/business class lounge, the selection of free beer, wine and liquor was fine. The food choices were slightly disappointing.
Opposite the food service area just off the main seating area is a smaller seating area.
The Desertika Spa is located at the back of the small seating area.
This spa is much smaller than the one in the Centurion lounge. The Desertika Spa offers a range of services including massages of up to two hours. All of these services are for a fee.
The Salon Premier VIP lounge in MEX Terminal 2 is an average Priority Pass lounge except that it also has a spa. That could be very handy when you have time for a massage. The biggest drawback for this lounge is the meager food offerings. Comparing the four lounges I visited on this MQD run, I rate the Centurion lounge as clearly number one followed by the Air France/KLM lounge at ORD because of the food. The Salon Premier lounge comes in third primarily because of the options the spa provides and because the LIM Sumaq lounge was so crowded. Once the new Sumaq lounge opens in a couple of months, it should relieve the overcrowding issue and improve that lounge a bunch.
