Dan Lounge - Ben Gurion Airport
« on: September 02, 2012, 01:20:55 PM »
What options are there for getting access to the Dan Lounge in Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv? I can get a free pass for myself with my Israeli credit card but am interested in getting one for my wife as well.
Thanks in advance.

according to the fine print it seems that it is only for the card member.

I find it really depends on the time. For the early morning flights (6,7 AM) the lounge is worthless, at 4-5 AM it's crowded and unpleasant. If i have an afternoon flight then the lounge is great.

The thing is, though, that there's free wifi all over ben-gurion so that's not an amenity of the lounge, and ever since they opened an aroma in the food court, their coffee is better and for those who eat va'ad kashrut arzit, the food's good too and the prices are reasonable..
