During my number of AeroMexico elite mileage runs to help me, at a very reasonable cost, maintain my Delta Diamond status I had the chance to spend some quality time in this Skyteam and Priority Pass lounge. I have complementary Priority Pass access via a number of my travel cards (learn more about travel rewards cards here).
The hours of operation are: 8:15 AM – 9:30 PM Monday & Saturday. 8:15 AM – 12:00 Midnight Tuesday – Friday & Sunday. Priority Pass access may be restricted between 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM – 7:30 PM daily and you will find it air-side, after security checks to the right. Location is between gates M8 and M7 on the left hand side and servicing only international flights from T5 only.
The lounge is one large room with a divider wall and the check-in desk roughly dividing the space in half.
Left of check-in is where you want to be if you are planning on working on your laptop with ample outlets to power up. This area was slightly quieter than the rest of the space.
Again, with such a small space this club packs folks in. To the staff’s credit, they did a good job of keeping the area clean and serviced frequently including the food and beverage area.
At the far end of the space are two more spots for laptop use and some very old and tired seats. I mean really tired. Take a look.
These are some of the worst looking chairs I have seen in any lounge let alone a Skyteam lounge (but I hear reports from readers that the Korean Skyteam lounge in LAX is now nearly as bad). On to the food choices.
If you like small sandwiches and chips you will be pleased. Over the weeks I visited I tried most of them and they were quite acceptable. There are also some hot options:
I did not sample these pasta options nor the soup but the other patrons seemed to enjoy them.
Lastly the limited self service adult drink options (beer and white wine in the cooler). Wifi was acceptable but not remarkably fast.
When I visit a lounge it is normally to get a break from the gate area – this club checks that box but only by a little due to crowding. Also I like quick check-in but each visit the staff had issues with our boarding passes. Comfortable seating is a must but this club is in desperate need of a refresh. Oh and there are no bathrooms in this club so you have to go outside down the hall. At least the snacks are decent and drinks are included!
Have you visited this Skyteam / Priority Pass lounge? What was your impression? – René
