Back in April, Pizza in Motion reported that Turkish Airlines would be opening a lounge at Washington Dulles. I am on my way home to Los Angeles this morning and was pleased to see lounge construction is progressing nicely.
The lounge will be in the former home of the Virgin/Emirates lounge in Terminal B and there were initial questions over whether the lounge would be only for Turkish passengers or a Star Gold Lounge (meaning even United Star Golds would have access on domestic itineraries).
Some good news — it appears this will be a Star Gold lounge based upon the signage:
I popped my head inside and was told I could not take any pictures and had to leave because it was a hard-hat area, but the lounge looks great and it would not surpirse me if it has some of the great touches we see in the Turkish Lounge in Istanbul.
We already have the Lufthansa lounge a few gates down which is great, but if this is anything like TK’s July 15 Heroes of Democracy Lounge in Istanbul.
