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 following restaurants have been newly added to Priority Pass at Los Angeles (LAX) and Houston (IAH) airports:
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.
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.
