P.F. Chang’s inside Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) has reportedly decided to leave the Priority Pass program.
According to The Flight Brothers, “while an official announcement from either party hasn’t been released, we were told by staff today that October 25th is the last day Priority Pass will be accepted.”
They report management was “displeased with Priority Pass support and reimbursement.”
I personally never visited the P.F. Chang’s at TBIT — but know frequent LAX travelers who did and aren’t happy with the news.
What’s Going On with Priority Pass Restaurants?
Several other credit cards, though, still include restaurant benefits with their Priority Pass Select memberships.
Personally, I’ve enjoyed several meals thanks to my Priority Pass benefits — especially the MSP Ike’s (RIP).
If payment to restaurants is an issue, I sincerely hope Priority Pass gets those issues resolved — and fast. Fleeing vendors certainly don’t increase a product’s worth or reputation.
As patrons, I certainly hope Priority Pass diners were tipping servers and bartenders. Just a guess, but non-tipping could persuade restaurants to not participate in the program.
