Priority Pass Fine Print
The recent article on the person committing fraud to forge boarding passes to stay in priority pass lounges got me thinking.
A family member of mine is an employee for the airlines so my wife and I frequently travel standby. I have been contemplating getting a priority pass membership through a credit card because due to the nature of standby travel we are frequently spending long periods of time in airports.
My question however is when traveling standby we don’t receive a boarding pass until moments before the flight is scheduled to leave. Instead we receive a seat request card to get through security. Would the seat request card be sufficient to get access to the priority pass lounges?
I don’t believe that works – lounges need to check for a boarding pass with a seat assignment
