Many people have access to Priority Pass lounges from credit cards like AMEX Platinum or Chase Sapphire Reserve. Currently Sapphire Reserve cardholders can bring unlimited guests into lounges, but effective 8/26 that will go down to 2 free guests in addition to the cardholder. Additional cardholders can also bring in 2 guests for free. Click Here to get more details on these cards and compare to other cards!
Priority Pass continues to add lounges to their network and you can now access the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in Newark/EWR and Washington DC/IAD in addition to the existing Los Angeles/LAX location.
The Clubhouse hours are heavily restricted though. In EWR (Terminal B) you can enter the lounge between 2pm-6pm. In IAD (Concourse A) you can enter the lounge between 6am-1:30pm. In LAX (Terminal 2) you can enter the lounge between 5am-10:45am. All of the Clubhouses are located after security.
One of my favorite Priority Pass lounges is the Art & Lounge in Newark Terminal B before security. They brought us tons of kosher meals and snacks upon request and they had kosher wine in the lounge as it’s used by El Al in Newark for their premium passengers. It’s nice to have a Priority Pass option before and after security Newark Terminal B
Priority Pass has been adding all kinds of non-traditional lounges such as bars and restaurants with a $28 credit for the cardmember and each guest. When I fly from my local airport in Cleveland I can now choose from 3 lounges, the Airspace lounge which is free with an AMEX Platinum card, the United Club, and Bar Symon, which has a $28 credit per person thanks to Priority Pass.
There’s even a Priority Pass lounge in Punta Cana that has a swimming pool with tarmac views.
