SFO Priority Pass Lounge (KLM lounge) review

The SFO Priority Pass lounge is located in the International Terminal A. What sucks about SFO is that their terminals aren’t connected together. The AirTrain can only bring you to the International terminal, terminal 1, terminal 2, etc. And each terminal has their own security. Even within the international terminal, it is divided between International Terminal A and  International Terminal G, again with its own TSA security. So only passengers with flights leaving from International Terminal A can access the lounge.

The lounge is very easy to get to. Once you go pass security in International Terminal A, the lounge is immediately to your left, right next to the Gucci shop. Many other lounges are there too, including JAP, HKA, (airline), etc.

The Priority Pass lounge is shared with the KLM lounge. The lounge is divided into two sections. Immediately after the entrance, there are some seating areas with quick coffee and tea, snacks like brownies, pretzels, and pound cake, and healthier options like oranges and apples. This is intended for the travelers that are short in time and are in here for a quick snack.

The “on-the-go” area when you only have a few minutes to stay
Staff restocking food and cleaning out the food area often
Multiple quick snacks option
The pound cake was quite delicious

There was even a wine tasting survey going on, asking passengers to rank some mystery wine. I am assuming they want to introduce the most highly rated wine into their lounge later on. Number 6 was my favorite.

The back section is meant for passengers with longer time to spend at the airport. It has a variety of food options, ranging from cold cuts and cheese, hot food, salad bar, and an open bar.

Back area with ample seating and large windows looking out to the construction being done at SFO
There is a salad bar for healthier options
Open bar area. Lots of wine being a French Airline Lounge. Also a decent selection of medium to top shelf liquor
Cold cuts, meats, cheese, and fruits. They have a wide selection of meats, but brie was their only cheese option. Also there weren’t any crackers to go with the meats and cheese.
Mini sandwiches and roasted vegetables
Meatballs and pasta. They were quite delicious.
Hot chicken noodle soup. Also a machine for sparkling, cold, or room temperature water

They even have one more room next to the front section that’s meant to be an exhibit for French Tech (an award to French cities to encourage start up environment) and a working area.

Overall, I was quite impressed with the SFO lounge, especially considering many US PP lounges don’t usually serve hot food and are always busy. We went to the lounge on a Tuesday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. Lounge was quite, food selections were great, the area was clean, and the back seating area were also brightly lit from the large windows.
