Alaska Airlines Lounge At Anchorage International (ANC) To Leave Priority Pass

Yesterday we posted that the Alaska Airlines lounges at PDX would no longer be available to Priority Pass members as of November 1st, this follows on from the SEA lounge leaving the program on September 1st. Reader nate points out that the Alaska lounge at ANC will be leaving the program on November 1st as well. I checked the lounges at Los Angeles & New York – JFK but it looks like those are not leaving the program (at least not yet). This latest loss will leave Priority Pass with no lounge at the Anchorage airport.

Palin family is so disappointed, lol

Alaska is way overestimates itself with all these bridge burning in the short period of time.

I wouldn’t pay $10 for priority pass in the states. I hope long term we either have an overhaul or card companies find a new benefit to tote. This one is about as watered down as they come.

PP lounges etc seem to be dropping off a lot faster than they are adding them. Something else has to be going here that we are not aware of.

When it gets watered down enough the whole drink gets thrown out.

We need a megathread for this mass exodus of lounges and restaurants from the PP network.

FYI, The timberline restaurant at Denver international airport is not closing down, but they are no longer part of priority pass. Apparently priority pass wasn’t paying what they were supposed to.

I know this was already reported, but as of today they are no longer part of it, but the restaurant is still open.

A year ago, the lounge matron at the ANC Alaska lounge refused to let me and my wife in due to “overcrowding,” even though the lounge was (and remained) half empty during a two hour period when we had a layover. She said she “thought” the lounge would get busier and they would run out of room! A similar thing happened that year to me at the SEA Alaska lounge.
Honestly, everyone is better off avoiding this friction if this is the way the benefit is going to be administered. There is no worse airport experience than “counting on” using a lounge and then being denied the visit due to an arbitrary and silly reason. I’d rather know from the start that I had no lounge access and plan accordingly.
