Continuing a series of posts from my parents as they embark on their journey to Scotland – this time with a IAD Turkish Airlines lounge review.  For previous posts in the series, see

Turkish Airlines IAD lounge location, hours and access

The Turkish Airlines lounge at Washington Dulles airport is located in Concourse B, next to gate B43.

It is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, and children 6 and under are admitted free.  Access is available to Star Alliance Gold members, Star Alliance passengers traveling in international business class or first class or (probably the most likely among readers of this site), Priority Pass

Turkish lounge IAD seating

Since we had 5+ hours between flights, we checked out the Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles airport.  When we first arrived a little before noon, it was nearly empty, but by 1:30-2:00 pm, it was crowded, and we needed to share tables.


There is also a bar and couches in another area at the lounge.

The planes outside on the Tarmac are so close, they look like they are going to drive through the window!

Turkish Airlines lounge IAD / Dulles wifi and other amenities

The wifi at the Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles was quite fast, which is always a good thing for airport lounges!  There is also a nice bathroom and shower facilities

There is also a prayer room offered

Lots of computers for use, a PlayStation if you ask for controllers and multiple TVs.

Turkish Airlines Dulles lounge food and drink

The spread was awesome, with hot and cold entrees. We had the chicken stew, tomato soup, both a little spicy, hummus and pita bread, and a variety of fruits. There were also cold salads.

There was a bar available but since, like Dan, we don’t drink alcohol, we can’t speak to the selection of different drinks.  I’d imagine they are “good”

And of course, who could taste Turkish food without sampling the baklava!

Although we didn’t sample any of the other lounges at Washington Dulles / IAD airport, I can believe that the Turkish Airlines lounge, if you have access to it through Priority Pass or otherwise is definitely the best lounge at Washington Dulles airport.
