Here I have to disagree with you. If I have the cash, why not ask the concierge service to get me a table half-a-world away? You don't have to be nasty about it; but if I had a G650, you bet your bum I'd be flying to Paris or London on occasion and need to make a rezzie. The truth of the matter is, the invite isn't THAT hard to come by. It's just a matter of spending, and a lot of people I know use the card for EVERYTHING if they can. I get the Platinum invite about every 6 months. I don't travel enough to make it worthwhile; but it is a good deal if you do. The coolest thing about the Centurion Card is that it's really METAL (aluminum it seems), with beveled edges (subsidiary account linked cards are plastic).
