Capital One airport lounges have now launched together with their first ultra-premium card offering, with its first lounge in Dallas/DFW in terminal D near gate 22. That’s next door to American’s flagship lounge.
The lounge is now open from 7am-7pm.
Capital One lounges in Denver/DEN and Washington/IAD will open next year and more lounges will be added to the network.
It’s great to see credit card competition in the airport lounge scene, with Chase and Capital One going up against AMEX and traditional airline lounges.
Back when AMEX first launched the Centurion lounge in Las Vegas it offered hot kosher food options, but that was removed when AMEX expanded access from Centurion cardholders to Platinum cardholders.
I asked Capital One about the possibility of having kosher food available in the lounges, as that’s something that would be highly valued considering how hard it is to find kosher food in airports outside of NYC. They responded saying,
“Capital One Lounge offers a menu that will accommodate a variety of guests’ dietary requests, including gluten free and vegan options. While there are no current certified Kosher offerings, we will continue to evolve our food and beverage program based on customer feedback.”
So if you do want to see kosher food, be sure to provide feedback by writing to Capital One and if you visit a lounge, be sure to let chefs and managers there know how much you would appreciate if there were kosher food options available.
In order to access a Capital One lounge, you need to have a boarding pass for a departing or connecting flight within 3 hours to use the lounge. Unfortunately, the lounges aren’t available to use upon arrival, but hopefully that will help prevent the lounges from overcrowding.
- Venture X cardholders get unlimited free entry and can bring 2 guests for free.
- Venture X additional cardholders are free, and they also get unlimited free entry and can bring 2 guests for free! There is no minimum age for additional cardholders and you don’t need to provide an SSN for additional cardholders. Read more about that card here.
- Lounge access for Capital One Venture and Capital One Spark Miles cardholders is $45 per person per visit. Those cardholders also get 2 free visits per year.
- Lounge access for everyone else is $65 per visit.
- Kids under 2 are free.
Lounges feature grab and go food with to-go bags for your flight, fully stocked bars with local beers and craft cocktails, coffee bars, work zones, exercise rooms with Peloton bikes and yoga mats, nursing rooms, kids rooms, soundproof relaxation rooms, luggage lockers, multi-faith prayer rooms, and shower suites!
The shower suite features one-time use toiletries in packages that will dissolve in water as you shower. That’s an awesome way to go green without the gross shared toiletries mounted onto the wall that can be tampered with. I can’t wait to try them out!
Will you go for a Peloton workout and shower during your next connection in Dallas? Where do you hope to see future Capital One lounges?
