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.

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.
