Priority Pass offers access to more than 1000 different airport lounges worldwide. If you do not have elite status with the airline you are flying and travel only in Economy Class, Priority Pass might be a solution if you prefer some privacy at the airport rather than spending your time till boarding on an uncomfortable chair or in a crowded and overpriced restaurant
at the airport. Even if you
have access thanks to your elite status, you find the available lounge to be crowded or simply not comfortable. While considering the purchase of a Pariority Pass, you should take into account that due to different terminals, you might not be able to enter the lounge because your flights depart from a different terminal. Several credit cards also include a membership of Priority Pass.
