I've actually done this a couple times when I've shown up "too early" at BWI. If you have a couple hours before your flight and have precheck, I would generally say it's worthwhile to pass through security twice to gain lounge access -- at least if you're interested in the free food and drink (which I usually am at BWI, because I'm usually flying domestic from BWI). If they ask at security, just tell them you're heading to the lounge. Obviously, if security is backed up or you're time is limited, it's probably not worthwhile.

I'm going to try this lounge for the first time on Sunday morning (<9am). I'm guessing (hoping) it won't be too busy at that time. Do they serve alcohol during all opening hours?

This is the most eerily deserted I've ever seen this lounge -- there are like three other guests here total right now

There we only 2 other people in when I was there this Sunday. Both of them were asleep! Dishes on several empty tables. Pretty trashy scene

I have only visited in the late afternoon and it's usually quite busy. In fact, I've had to ask idiots who've thrown their coats and such on additional chairs to move them so that I could have a place to sit.

This obviously isn't a great lounge, but it's better than no lounge. I think it's still the only one at the airport. I'd love Priority Pass to add a restaurant.

A Priority Pass restaurant at BWI would be good. I'm probably in the minority, but I prefer finding a seat at a quiet gate area over being in lounge >80% full. Probably because I have little interest in alcohol and prefer an actual restaurant meal if I need to eat.

I'll next be in BWI on Sun 23 Dec on an international departure after 8pm. I have no idea if the airport will busy or quiet. I'm not usually a Christmas traveler. If the weather is sketchy it's likely I'll arrive with lots of time to kill, so I may give the lounge another shot.

Maybe I just don't normally check, but I don't recall there usually being "real" food beyond like pasta/potato salad. At any rate, they currently have these chicken salad croissant sandwiches, what look like tuna salad wraps, and soup labeled "tomato bisque" which has more of a Southwestern flavor (contains corn and black beans, and has a very mild kick). Chicken salad is dry and unremarkable. Soup is decent.

Any new updates? We are flying out of concourse C and it sounds like it may not be worth it. We just got our PP cards and this one is far - PHX airport stops being a PP lounge *the day* we fly back. So- this isn't a great welcome. We have used lounges when flying business but this is just a domestic flight and economy.

This lounge is defintely not worth clearing security just to visit (unless you have a huge amount of time to kill and/or are curious). Small, cramped, and mediocre snacks. I'd just go to concourse D and find a restaurant.

It's completely full here right now. I think I got the last available seat.

Chicken salad wraps or veggie wraps, chicken noodle soup, a vegan vegetable soup, and the other usual party tray type things to nibble on.
