Priority Pass has made two recent changes to their lounge line up. They have added one lounge and removed one lounge.
House Spirits Distillery Addition
They have added the house spirits distillery (Concourse C at PDX), cardholders and accompanying guests receive $28 off the final bill per person per visit. I wasn’t able to find an online menu, so I’m unsure exactly how much drinks cost. This Yelp photo states the following prices:
- $15 for a flight of 4 cocktails or $5 each
- $10 for a spirits flight
- $20 for whiskey flight (four different types) thanks to reader B

Sofitel Heathrow Club Millesime Removal
This was added last year and is located in London Heathrow’s terminal 5. Apparently it officially left the program on June 6th. People have been given a number of different reasons as to why it was removed including:
- Security concerns
- Airport staff and locals abusing the perks
Hat tip to View From The Wing
Seems like Priority Pass is having more success adding restaurants and bars than they are keeping traditional airport lounges in the program. I think the restaurants/bars are better value and more interesting in terms of food and drink but one of the main reasons I visit a lounge is to get some work done and I can find that difficult in a traditional bar/restaurant.
