    Has anyone else tried this? I LOVE it.

    Priority Pass is rolling out a system where in some airports they are forming partnerships with restaurants or cafes in the terminal instead of or in addition to established airport lounge facilities. I just tried in out in the Sydney Domestic Terminal (T3). I was flying on a QF domestic flight and whilst having access to the QF domestic lounges (which I did use) I thought i’d try the PP restaurant system too (might as well get some value from that £450 Amex fee).

    What a great system! The Qantas domestic terminal has two restaurants that participate and basically you use your PP like a credit card up to the value of $AU36. You are also entitled to ‘guest’ someone as you would in a lounge so can increase the value to $AU72. From my POV SUCH a better system than having access to some crappy contract lounge with stale sandwiches and crisps. With most airport terminals now offering free WiFi and it no longer being one of the enticements of a lounge i’d chose this system over the traditional airport contract lounge system any day.

    If you do have a PP I encourage you to see if any of the destinations you travel to has a restaurant partnership and give it a go.

    Never come across this. yet. I have to agree some lounges are awful and not deserving of the oft used phrase, a haven of tranquility and peace. Airport restaurants are upping their game and you can often eat both inexpensively and surprisingly well.

    With many airports having free WiFi this is an added bonus, though I just wish the connection was automatic and you don’t have to go through some lengthy registration process to be able to login. Not at all convenient if you’re in a hurry and need to check something.

    A quick related question, I used to have PP when I had my Amex card but due to extortionate fees in SG ($1900) I ditched it when I started my company, can you join PP without being given membership through the Amex card??

    Always good to have an alternative when travelling to some of the delightful destinations and colourful airlines I am using …

    Thanks

    @k1ngston Yep. https://www.prioritypass.com/en/join

    I re-joined PP last year using a special offer through BT, which included 10 visits to lounges for 12 months, which cost less than the £150 cost I would otherwise have had to pay for the visits; in other words, the membership cost nothing.

    Does anyone [at BT] know if this offer is being repeated this year?
