“Priority Pass” Success

There are several cards I carry around in my bag that I rarely have a reason to use.  Two of my primary examples are my Priority Pass card and my Regus card.  In both cases, I’ve actually received memberships/cards due to affiliate programs but rarely have the need to use them.  However, my Priority Pass answered the call this weekend.

On Friday, I took one of the last Delta flights into Gatwick.  After today, Delta will be consolidating all London flights into Heathrow.  At Gatwick, Delta has used the arrivals lounge in the Sofitel Hotel for elite members and Business Elite customers but, given the impending shut down of Delta operations, I was not sure if it would still be available.

I arrived at the lounge and found that it was still in operation but no signage indicating that Delta was still be served.  However, it did have a notice for Korean Airlines, a Skyteam member, so I thought I might perhaps have access through my Sky Club membership that I get for free as a Diamond Medalliion with Delta.  However, the desk agent said that did not qualify.

Having never used my Priority Pass card, I gave it a try and it worked.  The agent gladly accepted this for admission and I was able to get a hot shower and breakfast before heading into London.  Thank you Priority Pass!
