Billy Bishop Porter Airlines Lounge Snack Bar AKT Rating: 3 WOWS!
Today, I traveled back to New Jersey with Porter Airlines. When I went to their lounge to wait for our flight, I realized that they had actually renovated it to look more sleek and modern. As I searched for a place to sit with my suitcases, I realized that there were more seating options than before. They had also updated the snack bar with more options, which I though was really creative of them to try and suit everyone’s needs.
I started to get hungry, so I decided to get a snack. I grabbed my ten dollar bill, and hit the snack bar. I grabbed a bottle of vitamin water, and handed the man the cash. He then explained to me that they only accepted credit or debit card. I thought that this was a bit unnecessary for a small little bar like this, since it wasn’t like I was paying for a full meal or anything, just a small snack! I also thought that the price of 4 dollars for a bottle of vitamin water was kind of ridiculous. They also removed one of my favorite items from their choices of food. Their shortbread and chocolate chip cookie. Or as me and my grandmother call them, the delicious and irreplaceable “Porter cookies”.
Though at first I was ecstatic about the new updates to the snack bar, for example the addition of new foods, I quickly realized that it was actually disappointing. It’s not worth paying for any of the premium food they have there, and I would actually recommend bringing your own snacks.
