Unlucky I'd say. I had similar experience with Bar Roma in BNE. The machine was down and they can't process PP. Nothing much you can do about it.

That's weird. I've used my Priority Pass at Bar Pulpo (the Movida one) at Melbourne Airport in early December. They had a machine then. I would complain to Priority Pass. They should have a manual system if the machine is down.

Can't help with those two, but Priority Pass have added Cafe Vue as a third option in Melbourne.

They do have a manual system; it’s the same old chunky manual credit card swiping device with carbon paper from years gone by, though I know some staff were reluctant to use it probably because it doesn’t tap and go.

Oh well the priority pass lounge is currently under construction so those places wont get the extra business for much longer anyway...with customer service like that I say good riddens

used Movida in Sydney a few weeks ago and the went to pay with PP and I was told the machine was down and I had to pay some other way. I told them PP was the only option and they reluctantly got a manual voucher out and filled it in - it can be done and they had a pile of vouchers
