Two additional Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse lounges have joined the Priority Pass lounge network.
Last November, Virgin began to let Priority Pass guests use its Los Angeles Clubhouse during the hours it was normally closed. It operates with a different food offering which is cleared away and replaced before the Upper Class passengers begin to arrive.
The service is now extended to Washington Dulles and New York Newark. It is effective immediately for Priority Pass and Lounge Club with Mastercard World Elite’s LoungeKey to follow next week.
Washington DC Dulles International (pictured below)
Location: Concourse A, across from Gate A32
Availability: 06:00 to 13:30
New York NJ Newark International
Location: After the security checks in Terminal B
Availability: 14:00 to 18:00
Remember that American Express Gold cardholders get two free Lounge Club passes which would be accepted at either lounge. Alternatively you can get a Priority Pass via American Express Platinum or by buying one.
