In an effort to increase its offerings, Priority Pass has been adding restaurants to its list of airport lounges. When dining at these participating venues, you simply order off the menu as you normally would and your Priority Pass membership will provide you and your guests with a credit toward your meal. Unfortunately, these restaurant additions are beginning to mysteriously disappear.
Another LAX airport restaurant will no longer be accepting Priority Pass soon. After November 30, 2018, Barney’s Beanery is leaving the network of airport lounges. The restaurant was added to Priority Pass only a few short months ago.
This comes on the heels of Campanile’s Restaurant in LAX Terminal 4 being added to Priority Pass in September and being removed a few short weeks later. This leaves PF Chang’s, in the Tom Bradley International Terminal, as the last remaining Priority Pass restaurant offering at LAX.
I don’t know why these restaurants are so quickly leaving the program, or if this is a problem specific solely to LAX airport. It’s certainly a disturbing trend that we’ll be watching.
