The Club Lounges To Add 3 Hour Prior Departure Access Rule
The Club are a set of lounges that are accessible to Priority Pass members found in the following airports: ATL, CVG, DFW, MCO, SJC, BWI, PIT, BOS, LAS, and SEA. These lounges now all state that starting September 1st access will be permitted 3 hours prior to scheduled flight departure. This is the same rule that American Express introduced to Centurion lounges on March 22nd, 2019.
As more credit cards add lounge access, overcrowding has become a real issue at most lounges. I’ve personally advocated for offering guaranteed entries vs restricting access in this matter as I don’t see why somebody that travels once or twice a year should have a 3 hour prior to departure rule added when other users are utilizing the lounge multiple times per day or week.
