The Priority Pass Lounge network has been hard at work over the past few years adding non-lounge experiences, like restaurants at many airports around the world to improve their offering.

This is an exciting trend if you are a Priority Pass member, as these restaurants provide a credit for up to $28 per person to dine for free during your travels. Sadly, that's no longer the case if you've got Priority Pass through an American Express card.

As was first reported by One Mile at a Time, Priority Pass has added another restaurant to Los Angeles (LAX): Point the Way Café in Terminal 6. The restaurant is located between Gates 65A and 65B and will provide a $28 dining credit for Priority Pass members and a $56 credit if you register a guest during your visit.

This is the third Priority Pass restaurant at LAX, after adding Rock & Brews in Terminal 1 last November and P.F. Chang's in the Tom Bradley International Terminal in September.

LAX's Terminal 6 is used primarily by Air Canada & Alaska Airlines. However, it is connected airside to the Tom Bradley International Terminal, and Terminals 4-7. This means you can visit the restaurant from any of these terminals without having to clear security again. Read on for more information.


Point the Way Café Information

  • Located in Terminal 6 at LAX between Gates 65A and 65B.
  • The restaurant will be open daily to Priority Pass members between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.

How Can I Get a Priority Pass Membership

The easiest way to become a Priority Pass member is to hold one of the credit cards listed below. All of these cards include Priority Pass as a benefit of card membership. However, as of Aug. 1, 2019, Priority Pass memberships issued from American Express Cards will not provide restaurant credits like this. 

That means the Chase Sapphire Reserve is your best option if you want a full Priority Pass membership, including restaurant credits.

Bottom Line

It's great to see Priority Pass continue to add restaurants as a part of program membership. They seem to be filling gaps in airports without a traditional Priority Pass lounge option, or in this case adding more options to airports with lounges.
And seeing as you can get up to $56 in free meals, it's another easy way to justify the annual fee on a card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve.
