Air Canada big in Romania, Virgin Atlantic keeps A330, world’s worst long-haul flight now from San Francisco, Priority Pass adds lounges at EWR, IAD, LAX

Posted on June 12, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– Air Canada’s Rouge is now flying to Romania’s capital Bucharest direct from Montreal and Toronto

– Virgin Atlantic is keeping the Air Berlin A330’s for good (I reviewed Air Berlin Business Class last year) and is upgrading them by adding a Premium Economy section but keeping the (in my eyes better) Business Class seat that Air Berlin had installed

– I thought LEVEL was one of the worst long-haul experiences ever – brought down by a miserable ground experience and rude staff – now the airline is moving from Oakland (which is running out of space for international ops) to San Francisco (which is the world’s most delayed major airport)

– the Virgin Atlantic Club Houses in Newark and Washington D.C. are also opening doors outside the busy hours to Priority Pass members

Despite all the limitations I liked the Virgin Atlantic Club House at LAX.

And yes we predicted the flow of new Priority Pass lounges now Barneys at LAX in Terminal 2 (Delta) is open for those hungry Priority Pass eaters as well. The food looks less than ideal but hey it’s free!
