Update: As of October 13, 2018, we no longer see Campanile listed as a participant in the Priority Pass program.

Priority Pass has announced the addition of 2 restaurants at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and one restaurant at Los Angeles (LAX). All three restaurants are located airside.

Campanile LAX

Landry’s Seafood

Located airside in Terminal C at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), Landry’s can be found near Gate 42. The restaurant serves traditional Gulf Coast Cuisine, with a variety of seafood, steaks, and pasta specialties. When visiting Priority Pass members will receive the following:

  • $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • A guest will also receive a $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • Regardless of how many guests your Priority Pass membership allows you can only sign in one guest

Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar

Cadillac Mexican Kitchen is located in Terminal A at George Bush Intercontinental airport. It can be found airside near Gate A17 and is open daily from 06:00 AM to 10:00 PM. As its name suggests, the establishment serves food with a Mexican flair, in a fun atmosphere. Priority Pass members receive the following when visiting Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar:

  • $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • A guest will also receive a $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • Regardless of how many guests your Priority Pass membership allows you can only sign in one guest

Campanile at Los Angeles International Airport

The restaurant is in LAX Terminal 4 and is located airside near Gate 42B in the food court area. Campanile is open daily from 06:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The restaurant offers a wide-ranging menu including breakfast, entrees, salads, and sandwiches. It also features a full-service bar with its own signature cocktails. Priority Pass members receive the following when visiting Campanile:

  • $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • A guest will also receive a $28 credit towards food and beverage
  • Regardless of how many guests your Priority Pass membership allows you can only sign in one guest

Guest Access Policy

Unfortunately, unlike other recent restaurant additions which allowed as many guests as your Priority Pass membership allowed, all three establishments restrict you to only one guest per visit. This restriction is unfortunate since if you have obtained your Priority Pass membership through credit card enrollment, you may be allowed to bring in more guests. With the number of Priority Pass restaurants increasing on an almost weekly basis, hopefully, the trend of restricting guest access will not continue.

Our Take

The addition of two restaurants at IAH doubles the number of Priority Pass establishments in Houston, and the airport now features two lounges and two restaurants. The addition of Campanile at LAX coupled with the recent addition of Barney’s Beanery brings to 6 the total of Priority Pass establishments in LAX. This substantial increase in capacity is a welcome addition, providing more choice to members, and reducing pressure on current Priority Pass establishments at both locations.

  • So looks like Priority is changing from a lounge to restaurants. But why are they adding all those restaurants is a bit weird , I don’t see who they are competing with ?

  • ron_vaughn@hotmail.com says:

    love the new choices at IAH!

  • Mmmmm Landrys!!!!!!!

  • Finally PP is stepping up its game and adding restaurants so we can actually go somewhere now that a lot of the lounges appear to be over-crowded quite frequently

  • Excited to see some changes to PP. Recent experiences have not been the rest lately.

  • Not bad when they add new restaurants.
    I hope they will not drop some lounges (the most expensive for them) in the future.

  • I like this trend because I prefer the PP restaurants over the lounges.

  • It’s a good thing. Many times I prefer restaurants over the crappy food at lounges.

  • This is great news! I have been very happy with my Priority Pass membership. I’m so glad they keep adding restaurants. I was even able to dine at the CLE airport beofre my last flight, which is nice since there are not many lounge options.

  • The_Bouncer says:

    Nice additions. I’m out from Terminal C at IAH in a little while, so I’ll definitely check out Landry’s.

  • Great to see high quality restaurants coming to PP.

  • I’m confused what Priority Pass’s business model is. They charge $99/year for membership, but most people have it through a credit card, and I imagine Amex gets a big bulk discount for buying so many at once. If they are reimbursing restaurants $28 per visit, then they are unprofitable by the 4th time a cardholder goes to a restaurant. Perhaps they have a deal with these restaurants, because some people will probably spend a bit more. But I could also see this being a bit like MoviePass — the only people for whom it’s worth it to buy a membership are costing the company money, and the only people they make money on are the ones who don’t use it (and cancel).

  • Love that they are increasing their network further. Lounges are crowded these days.
