I was flying out of SEA again and even showed up way too early to even check in. Alaska Airlines won’t accept checked bags 4 hours or more before flight departure time. I got there half an hour to early and had two options to either was 30 minutes or use the curbside check-in and pay a small fee.
After I was finally able to check in and get through security, which was super easy thanks to TSA Pre-Check. I went straight to my preferred lounge at Sea-Tac, the American Express Centurion Studio. I got in was given the last available seat. The lounge was so crowded that I decided to move to the Alaska Airlines Board Room. My flight was departing from the N-Satellite and I knew that Alaska Airlines opened a Board Room there.
Thanks to Priority Club, I had access to this lounge and was surprised, that it was almost empty, compared to the Centurion Studio. Great! I got a seat with a table for myself and was able to take care of some business stuff on my laptop.
The Alaska Airlines Board Room had a bar with complimentary drinks and next to it a coffee maker and soda dispenser with seating posibilities. The other side of the lounge featured small snacks and soup and more seating with tables. They even have a pancake maker. I was glad that I came to the Board Room that day. The overcrowded Centurion Lounge forced me to seek new places to hang out during my time at the airport. The service was great and the lounge was well staffed.
Alaska Airlines operates two Board Rooms at Sea-Tac. One in Concourse D just beyond the central security checkpoint and one at the N-Satellite between the gates N1 and N2.
Unfortunately, this Board Room has only a Family Restroom, means one shared restroom. If you need to use the restroom and it’s occupied at the moment, you can walk outside and the main concourse restrooms are almost across the lounge. Make sure you tell the concierge so you get back in without a hassle.
If you ever in need for a quite place to relax and hang out, the Board Room at the N-Satellite may be the best spot for you.
