Leeds Bradford to open THREE new airport lounges this week

Leeds Bradford International Airport is to open not one, not two but three new airport lounges this week!

Full details on the airport website here.

Regular HFP readers will know that Manchester Airport has been slowly building up its in-house lounge capacity.  Instead of letting in third parties groups such as No 1 or Aspire, it has created its own brand, Escape.  It also opened a luxury lounge, 1903, in Terminal 3 last year which I reviewed here.

Leeds Bradford has presumably decided that anything Manchester can do, it can do better.  But has it bitten off more than it can chew?  We have already seen British Airways reduce its services to the airport in recent months and that was probably the most premium carrier it had.

This is what will open on Wednesday:

The Yorkshire Lounge

  • Treat yourself to our leisure lounge

Leeds Bradford airport new lounges

Pricing appears aggressive, especially as none of them seem to offer champagne:

The Yorkshire Lounge – £24.95 adults, £15.95 children (3-11)

The White Rose Suite – £29.95 adults, £21.95 children (3-11)

The 1432 Runway Club – £34.95 adults, £27.95 children (3-11)

Priority Pass and Lounge Club guests can use The White Rose Suite, which is interesting as I would have assumed they would have sent people to the cheapest option.

The lounges accept incoming guest from 5am to 6pm.  There is no entry after 6pm and the lounges close at 8pm.

    “British Airways… was probably the most premium carrier it had”
    Oh dear, doesn’t say much for LBA! Scraping the barrel!

  2. The white rose one has turned up on priority pass & lounge club.

    The original yorkshire one isn’t listed any more and the more premium runway club isn’t listed either. Really disliked the old yorkshire one, too small, no windows in the business side they always put me in, and no toilets close/inside the lounge.

    I’m travelling through tomorrow (Friday 12th Apr). Will try and get some photos of the white rose. Dedicated washrooms is def a bonus – had to leave the yorkshire before and walk a good bit to get to the gents.

  3. Thinking about it wonder if LBA would permit priority pass/lounge club holders to pay the advertised rate difference over white rose (£5) to access 1432 Runway Club?

    Used the new lounge before the Sunday morning flight. My phone decided the SD card was unreadable so no photo I’m afraid.

    Space is too small and with very limited charging points. Manned bar now. There is a staffed barista machine as well as a regular coffee machine now.

    I arrived about an hour before departure and ended up perched on a high table.

    The positive was a brilliant view.

    Overhead staff saying feedback was mixed (at best) with some customers saying the old space was better.
