Priority Pass adds restaurants at LAX and Houston

Over the past year, Priority Pass has been rapidly adding retaurant dining options to its lounge network, both domestically in the US as well as a few abroad. There are now several new restaurants accepting Priorty Pass: two in Houston at Bush Intercontinental and one at Los Angeles International airport. These will be welcome additions for those travelers looking to cash in on up to $28 per person in free food and drinks thanks to a perk that comes with a number of credit cards.

The Locations

Quick Thoughts

It’s nice to see Priority Pass continue to expand restaurant options. While some would no doubt prefer a quiet lounge in which to work, I would much rather have a restaurant credit than nothing (which is what there was at many domestic airports/terminals for quite a while). While most domestic lounges have snacks I might eat to hold me over until an actual meal, a $28 credit (per person) to grab a meal saves me real dollars and cents. And sometimes it is particularly handy – a few months ago I ate at Bobby Van’s at JFK and was glad I had when the airline ran out of the only entree I cared to eat.

If not for this, it would have been a long hungry ride to Hong Kong.

After a quick glance at the menus, it appears that you should be able to find sustenance at these places with a $28 credit. See the terms of each location in your Priority Pass app (or the Priority Pass links under “The Locations” above) for restrictions on guesting — while your credit card may not limit the number of guests you can bring, the restaurant might.

Already used the Priority Pass at the Cadillac bar in Houston yesterday. It was a nice breakfast and a good change from always going to the lounge. If you don’t have much time then the Centurion lounge is a better option

Does the Citi Prestige card include PP? If so do I need to get a separate PP card from Citi?

Yes. Not sure what your second question is. Because different credit cards offer slightly different PP membership, you will need to get the PP card from Citi if you specifically want that kind of PP membership.
