Flying from SJC-LAX-SJD (Los Cabos,MX) - Lounge question

Hi,

I have flying to Los Cabos, MX from SJ with 2 hour halt in LAX. I have priority pass and I see there are 2 lounges in LAX (Alaska Lounge -Term 6 and KAL Lounge in TBIT terminal).

Anyone travelled to Mexico, can you confirm if I can access KAL lounge as it is in TBIT Terminal. Is that walkable?

Even if you have access, I wouldn't bother. Two hours isn't really enough time and too far to schlep from T-1 to T-6 or TBIT and back through security.

+1

But do NOT miss the SJD VIP lounge near Gate 8 for your return trip. That one is fantastic.

Most WN flights from LAX to SJD do originate from TBIT.

Well, then that should work!

The only issue on the KAL Lounge with Priority Pass is the limited hours of access - 12:00pm - 8:00pm only for Priority Pass holders, they even put up a "Priority Pass Line starts here" and there is usually a pretty long line waiting to get in. I hope your schedule allows for those hours. I certainly agree with the recommendation on the SJD lounge!

See Master Thread: Using Priority Pass when flying WN:

Using Priority Pass when flying WN

If flying from TBIT the KLM lounge will be your best bet. If flying from WN terminal, you can now use the Virgin Clubhouse in T-2 before noon, but be advised you might have a long wait for security when you go back to T1, though zero wait if you have CLEAR.

As others have noted the VIP lounge at SJD is wonderful.
