Priority Pass Lounge of the Year? Guadalajara, Mexico

I left for the airport early because traffic in Guadalajara is a nightmare. (see Guadalajara Travel Guide) I arrived promptly only to find out that my flight was delayed for hours. No worries, there was a Priority Pass Lounge that was Lounge of the Year in 2016.

The Club At SJC: The New Bloody Mary Queen?

Oh look, a Priority Pass lounge. Will it be yuck or will it be great? It was great. My Alaska flight was cancelled to LAX. I was rerouted to San Jose and spent twenty...

Oman Air Lounge Bangkok: Hummus & Hennessy

Recall 2pac's lyrics where he boasts about riding on his enemies, drinking Hennessy, and eating hummus. That was my experience at the smartly appointed Oman Air Lounge Bangkok.

Premium Lounge Guangzhou: Not Yuck, Not Great

God bless Priority Pass Lounges. When they are good (see ATL, Athens, Gatwick) they can't stack up to the likes of Cathay's The Wing or Emirates First Class Lounge Dubai. When they are terrible, they are victims of my contempt (see Priority Pass Lounge Jakarta and Mexico City).

Priority Pass Jakarta Lounge Review: Yuck

I flew Malindo Air from Jakarta to Kota Kinabalu. At CGK's smaller terminal, I passed the time at the Priority Pass lounge. Obviously, a lounge is better than no lounge but this one was worthless.

Louis Tavern Lounge Bangkok: Another Priority Pass Miss

Not every lounge is going to be Cathay Pacific's The Pier or The Wing. Some are going to be as extravagant as a Greyhound bus station. The Louis Tavern Bangkok is one of those misses.

The Club at ATL: Pop Champagne

I headed all the way to the international terminal to visit the Club at ATL since I was flying SWA to Orlando and didn't want to make use of the Southwest Lounge. The trip took about 15 minutes via train but was well worth it for the one hour that I spent there.

Athens Priority Pass Lounge Review

Priority Pass Lounges are hit or miss: Mexico City's was terrible but the one in London Gatwick was very nice. The Athens Priority Pass Lounge in Terminal A is called the Aristotle Onassis Lounge, a very fancy name for a lounge.

No. 1 Lounge Gatwick: The James Bond Review

No. 1 Lounge Gatwick is part of the Priority Pass Lounge network. The queue to get in gave the false impression that it would be an overcrowded, underwhelming lounge. That was not the case.

Priority Pass Bus Lounge Mexico City

Priority Pass Lounges may be better than waiting with the common folk but not by much. Leaving Mexico City, I went to the lounge near my gate before making the executive decision that it was making the hike to the Amex Centurion Lounge.
