End of June, I asked LAX lounge if they were still offering AL+ for California residents at AL lounge rates. That special offer ended June 1. They were not sure it would come back.

Will be paying my first visit to the SEA lounge Friday lunchtime, SEA-PHX, departure gate for recent flights appear to be all over the place, including the N gates SEA was my home base until a few weeks ago so know it's relatively easy to transfer between, gates, I will be traveling with my cat, assume as long as he stays in his carry bag, we will be allowed in? Is the N lounge the nicest. Am normally in the Delta Sky Club lounge which is a fantastic lounge with good food offerings, what's Alaskas food offerings like for lunch.

Currently in the C lounge at Sea having just come from the N lounge, which is definitely very nice and much bigger then the C lounge, that said, food offerings are very poor, just soup or salads, is this normal for Alaska lounges? Food offering much better at Deltas Sky clubs.

Food offerings are much better at the SEA Skyclub.

They usually rotators other foods like sandwich stuff, nachos, etc between lunch and dinner times at least in N lounge, but they vary it up. Breakfast includes pancakes and such.

we have noticed that food choices have been really edited for summer. Wonder if AS is trying to offset cost of lounge operation during summer travel season. ie; families now occupying majority of lounges. ( with their dogs)
Hoping for improvement this fall .

And complimentary industrial solvent, to distinguish from the actually drinkable hard booze that costs money? Or has the N lounge upped game for the free stuff?

The complimentary beer and cider options are much better than Iíve seen at most domestic lounges. Maybe the rest is average lounge hard alcohol, but the beers are leaps better than the complimentary Coors Iíve seen at some other domestic (and international) lounges.

I'll give you that, but if AS would spend 50Ę a bottle more on the wine selection, I wouldn't wish I'd had taken a Costco Acid Reducer Tablet before having a half glass.

I (and three others) have a 3 hour layover in SFO, flying on Alaska Air. Which of the following lounges would be the best option:
  1. I have the BofA Alaska Air and the Alaska Air lounge pass would be $30 per person.
  2. I have Amex Platinum for the Centurion lounge
  3. I have Priority Pass from Capital One, which I think are on par with the Chase ones.

Personally, I prefer the Amex lounge. Not that far of a walk now that the terminals are connected, and itís food options are superior to the AS lounge, especially if itís free and AS is $30/person.

I haven't been to the secondary options but I was at the AL in SFO recently and I wasn't impressed. The upholstery was very stained in at least half of the chairs, food options were meh, and most of all, there weren't many places to sit near outlets. Not worth $30 in my opinion, especially since you can go elsewhere at no charge.

Three hours is enough time and the "local" options are mediocre enough that I'd consider the VS lounge (yes that means re-clearing security twice)

Standard for AS lounges... at least when I've visited PDX, SEA, SFO and LAX. The food is on par with something you'd get at a hospital cafeteria. AS seems to spend their money and focus on the facility as a whole (space, seating, etc.) as opposed to food. Drinks are usually pretty good but, yeah, the food is nothing to get too excited about.
