A lounge opening in Vegas

In a move that seems to be bucking the trend of reducing services, Continental is actually adding something this weekend – a new Presidents Club lounge at the Vegas airport. They had hoped to have it open last weekend for the July 4th crowd, but building permits got in the way. Everything was sorted out this afternoon it seems and the lounge will be open for business starting at 5:30am Vegas time on Saturday morning. The hours are daily 5:30am-12:30am, covering the entire flight schedule quite nicely. Also, they are in the same terminal as Delta and Northwest, so those club members will get to benefit for a bit, until Continental bails on SkyTeam for Star Alliance, at which time the lounge reciprocity will almost certainly end.

Overall, a very nice new benefit for folks, and proof that it isn’t all bad news in the industry these days.
