Priority Pass, Thinking OUTSIDE the Box

Priority Pass, Thinking OUTSIDE the Box

I’ve been talking with friends over the past few months and we’ve all noticed more often than not Priority Pass lounges seem to be closed due to space constraints.

However, we’ve noticed some changes with Priority Pass and IMO it’s actually for the better.

 

You may have seen our post recently on just what Priority Pass is and how it works and our review of a different type of Priority Pass at the Sydney Airport.

Also, today Priority Pass added a “new” location at LAX.

I’m happy to see that Priority Pass is thinking outside the box and adding terminal restaurants instead of more access to crowed lounges that are packed with very limited food selections.  In fact, I’d rather get a food credit from my PP membership.  It’s not a bad deal.

Below, I’ve added a few of the new, let’s call them, “enhanced” lounges added recently to the Priority Pass network in the US that offers this feature!  Make sure you check out the website  before you jet off to see what PP has for you.

MIA

Viena features a farm-to-table concept featuring European and Brazilian cuisine including salt cod fritters, Brazilian cheese bread, and the Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail.

While lounge overcrowding is becoming an issue, it’s nice to see Priority Pass being proactive and working on giving some great benefits and credits for F&B.

Have you been to any of these terminal restaurants yet?  How were they?
