Lounge Review: Aspire Lounge, Heathrow Terminal 5

Terminal 5 is Heathrow’s newest terminal. Opened in 2008, the terminal exclusively serves British Airways and Iberia. With the famed First Wing, Galleries First Lounge, and Concorde Room, the terminal is fantastic for travelers flying British Airways First Class and Oneworld Emerald flyers. However, there’s only option if you plan to use a Priority Pass lounge – the Aspire Lounge. Is the lounge a worthwhile...

Male Airport VIP Leeli Lounge

Mention the Maldives and images of pristine turquoise blue waters come to mind. Overwater bungalows with direct jump-in access to the water and romantic sunsets are commonplace in this island paradise. While it’s on almost everyone’s wish list, getting there can be a challenge. Flights are often ridiculously expensive and once you DO get to the islands, a barrage of expensive hotels with overpriced meals await. Never mind the flight...

Review: MasterCard Lounge, Prague Terminal 1

Prague’s Václav Havel Airport is a great airport for Priority Pass members. The airport has a total of four priority pass lounges – two in Terminal 1 and two in Terminal 2. Our flight was departing from Terminal 1. Usually, this gives you the option of the Menzies Aviation Lounge and the MasterCard Lounge. Our flight was leaving at 7am, so the MasterCard Lounge won by process of elimination. The Menzies Aviation Lounge...

Without a doubt, the St Regis Maldives is THE place to be for miles and points enthusiasts. At over $3,000 a night, staying in a luxury resort has never been a better deal with points and miles.

Review: The Grain Store, London Gatwick South Terminal

One of my favorite perks of having the Chase Sapphire Reserve card is the access to lounges I get around the world.

In addition to lounge access, Priority Pass has been expanding their presence into restaurants. With your Priority Pass membership, you’re given a...

Seattle Priority Pass Restaurant Closed After Two Weeks

Well – that sure didn’t last long. Seattle’s newest Priority Pass restaurant has already closed their Priority Pass affiliation just after a few weeks. Floret, by Cafe Flora, was hailed as a great addition to the lounge selection in Seattle. There’s currently a Centurion Lounge (which is constantly overcrowded), the Club at SEA (which is far from everything), and the Delta Skyclub and United Club, both which...

How many Priority Pass Memberships is too many?

Priority Pass memberships are everywhere. Sign up for almost any premium credit card from the banks and you’ll be offered a Priority Pass lounge membership. This flooding of the market has started to cause problems in lounges of overcrowding and limitations of hours of use. As with most memberships in life, one is usually enough. But, if you’ve got 3 or 4 credit cards that all give you priority pass membership, do you need...

Two New Priority Pass Lounges in Miami!

If you’ve got a credit card that you’re paying an annual fee on, it’s a very good chance that you’ve got a Priority Pass membership. Banks lately have been issuing memberships much like Willy Wonka gave out free candy on his tour (currently I have 4). Normally that’s not too big of an issue. You can get into a lounge and that’s what it’s good for, right? Well now that PP is pairing up with...
