While Frontier Airlines and Southwest Airlines do not have a premium cabin and frankly would never be considered premium in any way, there is an airport lounge that welcomes its most frequent flyers.
Southwest Airlines + Frontier Airlines Do Have A Lounge At COS…
Earlier this week I reviewed the Premier Lounge in Colorado Springs. A lot of you read it and the takeaway seemed to be that this is a rare lounge that grants access to elite status frequent flyers on two airlines that have shunned most things premium, including airport lounges.
Yes, lounge access is granted for Frontier Early Returns elite members (all levels) as well as Southwest A-List and A-List Preferred members (meanwhile, United MileagePlus Premier Platinum members are not welcomed…).
The origins of this lounge are not clear, but it is likely part of the marketing budget for the airport each year and quite frankly I think that is a great way to make a positive impression on frequent travelers, regardless of which airline they fly.
The amenities are limited (light snacks, soft drinks, coffee, tea, water), but on a carrier like Frontier where nothing is included in terms of onboard food and drink beyond a cup of water, this lounge can save a few bucks.
I’d love to see the numbers…is there any way to see whether there is a return on investment in granting elite members access? After all, it takes people to staff and clean this lounge and the snacks and drinks cost something.
But it’s a concept I quite appreciate.
