Alaska Lounges in Anchorage, Los Angeles, New York JFK, and Portland, belong to Priority Pass. These lounges often have capacity restrictions where they’ll turn away Priority Pass members due to crowding. And now it has been confirmed that the Portland lounge will officially be leaving Priority Pass. This was confirmed on the Priority Pass website, the Alaska Lounge Portland will be leaving the Priority Pass network as of November 1, 2019.
For now, if you want to enter an Alaska lounge in Portland before it leaves the Priority Pass program on November 1 keep this in mind:
- You can have lounge access 3 hours prior to a scheduled flight departure
- You are required to show a physical or digital Priority Pass Card
- Limited to two guests per cardholder or immediate family
