    SJU Avianca Lounge Entrance Update

    The elevator for the Avianca Lounge in SJU has been updated. There is now a rear door which enters directly into the lounge.

    Smart move.

    Safe travels on this last leg of your trip.

    DOWNSIZE AT A PACE THAT Does NOT WEAR YOU AND KATE DOWN. Then fill me in on how to do it!

    Re: SJU Avianca Lounge Entrance Update

    From what I’ve figured out so far, there are 3 keys to downsizing.

    1) Start a year sooner than you think that you have to.
    2) Order a dumpster, and use it.
    3) Be ruthless.

    I forget- Does Tradewind allow us to use the Avianca lounge in SJU? I know Tradewind has their own area as well.

    There is no connection between the Avianca Lounge and Tradewind. Most people who I know that use the Avianca Lounge access it through Priority Pass.

    Priority Pass also gives access to a second, smaller Avianca club that is around the corner from Tradewind’s lounge. Good place if you’d like to enjoy a cocktail while waiting.

    Thank you. We have Priority Pass and will use it there. The Tradewind lounge is suitable but meager.

    The Tradewind lounge has been expanded, and the furniture has bern updated.

    The Avianca Lounge in Terminal A is new to me. While the one in B North just before the C gates is most convenient for AA customers, the one in A would be more convenient for those flying DL, UA, or SW.

    The Club in A is quite small.

    Priority Pass is an international airport lounge network. Some pay to join, others have it as a perk from one of their credit cards. https://www.prioritypass.com/

    I just found out that we could import our priority pass cards into our "wallet" on our iPhone and no longer have to dig around in the carry-on for the card or worry about losing it

    It's still a good idea to keep the card with you in your travel gear for other lounges; when we were at the Priority Pass lounge in Cabo last February, the physical card was required for entry. There were lots of upset travelers...

    All this is good info. If one uses the smaller club mentioned, will Tradewind's personnel come retrieve you to board like they do in their lounge?
    Thanks!

    Glad to know the Tradewind lounge has been spruced up!
    As I recall, our Priority Pass allows the member and a guest?
