The new Lounge Club at San Jose Airport (SJC) Review

My quick trip to Los Angeles yesterday gave me a chance to stop by the new Lounge Club at SJC. Lounge Club is similar to Priority Pass and usually allows its members access to existing airport lounges.

Lounge Club offers a generous 2 visits free when you sign up using the code CHASEINK. MilesMomma has a good post about it.

The lounge seems purpose built right across the ANA gates for the 787 flight to NRT. As all ANA 787 are grounded there is no flight leaving for Japan currently from San Jose. I actually was the only visitor to the lounge at a busy(?) Tuesday morning at 9 AM. The lounge is operated by Lounge Club directly which is rather unique. San Jose airport has been providing strong incentives to ANA to get this route to open up and seemingly having a lounge for ANA premium passengers was a big part of it.

The lounge is spacious and features a very modern design. The breakfast on display did not stand out as very good but had all basic options and there were sandwiches on sale as well. The is a full bar for those of you who like a drink.

I really liked the work area with the view over the tarmac.

Finally my home airport has a lounge and it's a great one. It's as good as they come in most US airports.
