London City has a Priority Pass vending machine …. but no lounge

Reader Tony sent me the photo below of a Priority Pass vending machine!

Yes, it is odd.  Is there really a market for a machine vending £69 – £233 Priority Pass airport lounge membership cards?

What is really bizarre is where he found this machine.

London City Airport.

The airport with no lounge unless you pay to use the lounge in the Private Jet Centre next door which we reviewed here.  And it isn’t in Priority Pass anyway!  There could be a few confused / annoyed Priority Pass customers out there.

The Hilton Honors Platinum Visa has closed to new applicants - what now?
Bits: BA lounge access expanded; stay the night in the Virgin lounge

    Does anyone know how (or if I can) book a reward/Avios flight to arrive and depart from two distinct US cities/locations?

    It’s possible that I am being thick but I can’t see that this is doable via or Avios……


    • You need to call. You could book it as 2 x one ways but the taxes (when flying to NA) cost more than a return.

    OT: The Mothership was due to fly with DY today EDI-OSL. Despite the airport being open the flight was cancelled. The aircraft was due in from New York Stewart, but that rotation yesterday & overnight last night was cancelled.
    Can DY deny EU261 compo?
    Does anyone know where on their site to claim it, as it’s not overly clear when I’ve had a poke around.

    • I doubt it would be tough to blame it on the weather. Even if the airport was open flow would have been reduced I assume.
