Priority Pass is not perfect, but I have not encountered a single instance when it is worse or the same as seating at the gate. For those not interested in paying $450 and up a year for a premium credit card which includes Priority Pass, the company is running a Black Friday promo with up to 40% off the regular subscription price. The first time I accessed a lounge, I paid $27 thanks to having AAA, but I’ve since have a couple of means of accessing the lounges. Priority Pass access really changed the way, I travel for business and with the family. Getting the plan that gives you 10 passes for $186 does not seem to be as a bad deal if you travel solo less than 6 times a year.
