    I had the same issue (no lounges when searched) until an hour ago but all looks good again.

    Plus you can still buy the $10 passes.

    I’ve availed of the $10 pass twice so far in Paris and Budapest. Their lounges are very poor quality(food, seating), I used to have status with BA and Aer Lingus and took lounges(most case far superior) for granted as they weren’t costing me anything, but paying for these sub standard lounges yourself makes you think twice and I wouldn’t pay a cent more than $10 for the DragonPass lounges.

    Tbh I’m a bit apprehensive to use on my travel next week because of the virus (their lounges are cramped and crappy finger food out in the open etc). I know this sounds daft considering I’m getting on a plane on the first place.

    Lookup reviews before you go and pick the best one for your lounge pass.

    I've found lounges in Spain are generally very good, with a good selection of hot food, nice drinks and even some with lovely outside terraces (Gran Canaria Airport is great for example as is Barcelona)

    Germany is very basic, just booze, coffee and cold snacks.

    There are a few surprise ones as well in smaller airports in Poland

    I went to the Platinum Lounge in Budapest, was decent and it was next to my gate with good drinks/hot food and fast wifi.

    They're not "DragonPass lounges". The vast majority are either contractor or airport run lounges. I have Priority Pass as well and they use mostly the same lounges (they have a slightly better selection but not much).

    The chances are if you are flying business class with an airline from an airport that is either not a hub for them or an alliance partner, you would likely end up in one of these lounges anyway.

    You just need to look up reviews to make sure it's not a waste of time. However for $10 my standards are lower than if I were paying £20 with Priority Pass.

    The lounges are back for me now.

    Me too now, thanks

    Have only been to a handful of lounges but can highly recommend the Primeclass Lounge in Zurich Terminal E (Aer Lingus mostly fly from here).

    Fresh hot and cold food, great selection of drinks, surprisingly good coffee from a machine, clean showers, lockers, plenty of workspace and a nice open air balcony/viewing area.

    Was over the moon to see that it accepts DragonPass.

    Has anyone managed to get a guest in?

    I am flying from Stansted next month and would like to bring a guest in if possible.

    I contacted Stansted and got the following reply:


    "If we can accommodate two people using 2 x credits, then of course we will do this providing the merchant allows this.

    For example, providing dragon pass allow their customers to use 2 x credits to bring in a friend, we would allow this (subject to availability).

    I would advise checking the terms and conditions with Dragon Pass before journeying to our airport."

    Dragonpass don't allow this unforunately with the RED Membership.

    Prioritypass does, e.g. with AMEX Platinum you can bring 1 guest with you for free or indeed pay if you have standard membership.

    That Dragonpass Dufry pass is only the pass tied to the name of the user:

    "Note: The lounge access top up rate for membership issued by third party may differ with the above mentioned standard rate."

    It's all the same app though. Other people in the thread have said they were able to use it with guests and just had 2 visits scanned.

    Personally, I'll be chancing it. If I can't get my guest in, no harm and we'll just not bother.

    Yep it's just QR Code, but the code is valid for 1 person named person or 1 named person + 1 Guest.

    Maybe London stansted is different but that's my experience so far :)

    I was asked if I would like 2 guests scanned with same pass (in both Dublin and a Spanish lounge) but since I didn't accept the offer I can't tell you if it worked or not. Its possible that the system would not have let them do it this way. If someone else is able to bring a guest please post and let us know for sure.

    is the offer price working again?

    I am flying out of Stansted at 0630 in a few weeks time and will be arriving at the airport in the early hours, would it be worth my while signing up for this to gain access to one of the lounges?
    it's £27 to book directly on the Stansted airport website.

    Okay, just wanted to report that I have now been a RED by Dufry member, and a Dragonpass member for over one month.

    I still have Platinum membership on RED and still can buy $10 passes. Looks like we'll get a full year out of this!

    Same here.

    Also used Primeclass lounge at Frankfurt airport yesterday. No problems at all.

    Tried to get a guest in at DUB terminal 1 DAA lounge. They said they couldn't scan the same barcode for another 120 minutes. It felt like she would have liked to do it but the computer said "no".

    Also, I'm over a month and $10 passes still available.

    Thanks OP. Great bargain alert.


  • #2


    Nearly 6 weeks in and I'm still getting the $10 passes.

    Gutted I missed this... Any chance passes can be bought on one of yer accounts for me? :D

    Nearly 6 weeks in and I'm still getting the $10 passes.

    Same here, happy days ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜.

    I've used Aspire lounge in Gatwick South, Plaza premium at Heathrow T3 arrivals and Escape at Stansted airport.

    No problem using any of them anywhere, staff always seem happy to accept them and are helpful and courteous.

    Used it in T1 lounge Dublin for myself and my wife no problem. Asked how many on the card ? Answered 2 Reply WELCOME .

    Bargain $10

    Used in Gothenburg yesterday with no issues, bought the pass two minutes before going into the lounge. My 7 year old daughter got in for free. €9 for us both..... pretty good!!

    I'm in JFK at the moment flying with Aer Lingus so T5 and there are no dragonpass lounges in T5. For anyone that was planning on arriving early and chilling out in the lounge before their flight. The lounges in the other terminals judging on the reviews on the app suggest DP holders seem to be rejected from there anyway

    Terminal 5 in JFK has the Paris Cafe prior to security though:

    Terminal 1,4 and 8 all have airside lounges though:

    Yeah as I said, if you're flying Aer Lingus back, T5, there's no lounge. The other terminals' lounges have limited dragonpass access judging from the reviews of the lounges on the app. Like the wingtips lounge attached for example in T4

    I am finding those comments not reliable. Already have tried few lounges with comments stating dragon-pass is not acceptable and went in without any issues. Best way is just to go any try.

    Don't mind the reviews, these are generally people that got Dragonpass some other way (via their bank or some other institution) and have other conditions tied to it (e.g. 2 max visits abroad and 1 visit in their home country) and didn't really understand the conditions they had or just plain up were chancing their arm.

    General rule of thumb is, if you paid straight out for a visit you can access all lounges, if you got it free with visits included (from your Bank or something) these have strings attached.

    Same for Priority Pass, if you pay straight up for it then you have access to everything, if you got it free then (e.g. from AMEX Platinum) then you cannot access the Priority Pass Restaurants but still have unlimited visits in Lounges for you, the partner card holder + 1 guest each.

    T5 in JFK does have a lounge, just it's not Airside, many Airports are like this, Langkawi and Bydgoszcz being two recent ones in memory :)

    Edit: I was at the Terminal 1 lounge at Dublin airport.

    First time Lounger and I can’t complain. Plenty of snacks and nice and relaxing.

    I could get used to this.

    Thanks OP
