Video: Let’s Talk About the Airport Lounge Drama

There’s been a bit of beef in the airport lounge space recently.

In July 2021, Plaza Premium, one of the world’s largest independent airport lounge operators, severed ties with Priority Pass, one of the world’s largest airport lounge networks.

Since Plaza Premium lounges are so commonplace in Canada, this leaves many of us with Priority Pass memberships through our credit cards wondering about the future of our free food and drinks at the airport lounge prior to our flights.

In this video, let’s catch up on the airport lounge access drama and break down the impact on your lounge access strategies depending on which credit card you hold.

Without further ado, you can watch the video below:

    In July I flew out of SAW (Sabiha Gokcen International) airport in Istanbul which hosts a Plaza Premium Lounge. I knew about the split between Priority Pass and Plaza, but thought I would still be able to enter by showing my Amex Plat. Staff turned me away, saying Amex Plat holders did not have access.
