There's one in B, and one in C. You'll usually be able to enter one of them, and you could ask them aftewards to go to the other one.
Is that a strategy?

How much time would it take to go to one, find out you can't enter with Priority Pass because of crowding, walk to the one in the other concourse, and then walk to your flight which might be at the end of the first concourse? And all this for what experience?

They are not so far. If there is not much time then why bother but if there is time before the flight it is still much better than the gate.

They're a few minutes apart from each other. Sometimes the one that's closest to the gate is the crowded one, so you'll go to the other one, and switch once it gets closer to the flight.

How long do you generally spend at Dan's lounge? It's not like TLV is a connection where you spend time in the lounge between flights. I can't imagine I would ever go to one, to find out it's crowded, then go to other one, and then switch back. I would just time myself to leave the one I'm at in order to get to the gate when I would need to.

I actually spend a little while there over the summer due to flight timing and car rental return and security taking much quicker than I thought.
