Priority Pass Lounge Changes: Virgin Clubhouses Leaving; 3 New U.S. Lounges

There have been several new Priority Pass lounge changes including Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses in the U.S. leaving and three new lounge options added.

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses Leaving Priority Pass

Plaza Premium recently took over the management of Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses outside of the U.K., and Plaza Premium removed all of their lounges from Priority Pass.

Now, all of the U.S. Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses are not available on Priority Pass, including Washington Dulles, San Francisco, Newark (closed permanently), and Los Angeles (closed temporarily). 

But the American Express app says you can still access these lounges with an American Express Platinum card (rather than a Priority Pass card), so this is loss is mainly a blow for people who only have Priority Pass through Chase.
