This is a really good card, and I don't really need the airport lounge or a yearly gift, just to have the 2% airfare reward is good enough. Now, let's talk about the looking of the card, wow, everyone looks at it with that wing face (lol). The card look so nice that I get eyeballed all the time on it.
Bottom line, I recommend this card over any Amex cards!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
