Credit Cards Cutting Down on Lounge Access?

Does anyone else feel that suddenly Banks have decided unanimously to cut down on Lounge Access. First it was IDFC, then ICICI and now HDFC. I feel that rest of the Banks will soon follow the suit.

I agree that off late Lounges were getting really overcrowded, but suddenly removing such benefits from Credit Card is not fair.

What do you think of this decision?

I have recently been in a domestic lounge. Despite being a decent-sized lounge, it was overcrowded. Besides the banks have to pay for our lounge visits. So, when folks just start exploiting the benefits they are given, then such harsh steps must be taken.
I still believe some banks would continue providing lounge benefits so as to attract new customers to them.
