This is a series meant to help you find the best of the best in lounges everywhere.
Our 12-year-old, Jack has become a lounger-extraordinaire. He knows how to get the most out of any lounge experience and always manages to get our full money’s worth out of any visit. As a result, we have come up with a lounge rating system according to our very discerning lounge critic. Enjoy, and may you too achieve lounge nirvana!
Jack’s Rating System
1 (worst)—5 (best)
Shanghai Pudong Airport
Priority Pass Plaza Premium Lounge #77
Jack really liked the ambiance this lounge had to offer because you could look down over the gates at the airport. Although the sandwiches here are freshly made, Jack prefers the prepackaged ones he has found in most other lounges. What can I say, sometimes he likes the finer things in life and other times, he prefers to keep it simple. As for the bathrooms, those are what put this lounge’s rating over the top. Japanese Toto toilets with heated seats made Jack feel “fancy” and became his favorite bathroom out of all the lounges we have visited.
