EZE domestic terminal no lounge access?

Flew out the other day and it seemed once I pass security I'm stuck between about four gates with no access to lounges or priority pass without leaving security to go to another terminal..is this correct or did I miss something? I have another domestic flight soon.

In my opinion you are lucky to be flying out of EZE rather than AEP with the check in zoo.

You were actually experiencing Salon VIP Para Todos.

At AEP Priority pass provides free food at the dept. restaurant. I think it's a set menu + 1 drink.

But only as long as you find someone in the team of waiters and helpers who knows what Priority Pass is....

Domestic flights and VIP Lounges is a difficult subject. My recommendation is to go for a beer ( easy in AEP , but more difficult in EZE unless you can decipher ho to get up and down the stairs from the domestic departures dungeon.

The only airline lounges that are "worth it" (and barely at that) are all located at EZE.

And even there, you have to manage expectations.. both the AA lounge and the AmEx Centurion are nothing to write home about. To be fair, I havent been allowed into the "true Centurion" section of the AmEx lounge since I only carry a Platinum, but from people I know that have the real thing, everything is sub-par when compared to anything you will find at the larger US and European/Asian airports.

Compared to the old batch of lounges, the new batch is like the Emirates F cabina. No joke.

The AA lounge is situated adjacent to Gate 9 and is shared with BA and Iberia.

Without being spectacular, the Food and Drink offer is sufficient for a pre-flight snack and refreshment.

the last time I was there about 4 months ago, the food and drink offer was waiter-assisted- only soft drinks and water was self serve.

Are you on an int'l - int'l connection? Otherwise, unless you're departing perhaps on the last of the AA flights, the AA counter won't be open to get airside that many hours prior to departure.

The AA lounge is the least pleasant of the bunch - primarily because of the space itself, and how crowded it gets. The F&B is so-so. Location to gate depends on just where your plane is - it could be a one minute walk from departing the elevator, to a ten minute walk should you end up in the very low numbered gates.

It seems nobody ever answered the OP's question. Is it possible to access the PriorityPass lounge or restaurant in Terminal C at EZE when on a domestic flight out of Terminal B?

Actually, the OP didn't mention terminals by letters, and your post muddles the mess. There is no "landside" B, just A and C. They combine to one large international departures area, with the newer pier called Terminal B in the airside area. There are limited domestic departures from the C entry point. There is no way to get to the PP lounges /resto or any other of the lounges as everyone in that sector has already "left the country."

The problem is that frequent travellers who post here probably have never travelled on a domestic flight form EZE!

My recollection is that there is an escalator from the area adjacent to the entrance to the domestic departure area which would take you upstairs . I do not recall if there was any physical barrier that would prevent people going up or more important to come back Down. Domestic and international passengrs use a similar security area but I am not sure what happens after they pass through this area.

Which lounge Does Priority Pass use at EZE?

Nor, apparently, did some portea travel agents knew such flights existed. Years (actually, 2 decades) ago, I wanted to get from BUE to FTE in the morning. Found none from AEP but the only such flight was an AR flight ex-EZE (couldn't book online in those days) and had to convince the Bs As travel agency that such a flight did exist.
