Review: Avianca MEX Lounge

MEX has several lounges accessible via Priority Pass across terminal 1 and terminal 2. There is also an American Express Centurion lounge. However, it’s before security and based on some reviews doesn’t seem on par with their US counterparts. We were flying United from MEX to SFO and the closest lounge was the Avianca Lounge located near gate 31.

Upon entering there was a small room with an agent. Even though this lounge accepts priority pass I just scanned my boarding pass and was granted access with Star Alliance Gold status. I then proceeded down the stairs to the lounge.

The lounge is essentially one large room which isn’t too big. There are some couches around the walls and standard tables and chairs in the middle.

There was also a small area with high top seating. This area also had two computers and a printer.

The buffet area had some hot food options including rice, chicken fajitas, pasta, and tomato soup along with small sandwiches.

There was also some snack mix and a coffee machine. Below the buffet (not pictured well) was your standard fare of soft drinks which were self service.

The lounge had complimentary alcohol beverages. The beer was in the below buffet fridge.

Survey Says

While small this lounge was close to the United gate and was a decent space to wait for the flight. The drink and food options aren’t anything to write home about, but are better than any US domestic lounge.
