One byproduct of the ongoing pandemic is that it seems harder than ever to get primetime reservations at top restaurants. Wheels Up is seeking to change that for its Core and Business memberships via a new partnership with Landry’s Inc. They’ll also get a perk valued at $7,500 annually.

Landry’s is best known for operating some of the world’s most popular, upscale fine dining restaurants. The group includes Mastro’s, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Palm, Chart House, and Strip House. It also owns the 5-star The Post Oak Hotel in Houston. In total, there are more than 600 dining, hospitality, and entertainment establishments nationwide.

Landry’s President’s Club status for Wheels Up Core and Business members

Wheels Up Core and Business Members will receive access to Landry’s President’s Club status. It’s the company’s top-tier loyalty reward membership status. Flyers of the second-largest for-hire private aviation provider get complimentary valet parking, preferred seating, and priority seating. They also receive after-dinner drinks at Morton’s on the house.

President’s Club status is based on the amount spent and visits made on a rolling 12-month basis. To qualify, you must spend $7,500 or more and have three or more visits in a 12 month period. President’s Club status is valid for one year and must be achieved annually.

“Continuing to elevate and enhance our members’ experiences whether in the air or on the ground is one of our top objectives.  We are thrilled to add such a comprehensive portfolio of premium restaurants to our suite of member benefits,” said Gail Grimmett, Chief Experience Officer at Wheels Up.

She added, “Whether our members are taking advantage of their President’s Club benefits at one of Landry’s restaurants across the United States or enjoying a relaxing stay at The Post Oak Hotel, we know this will raise the overall member experience.”

“With this new partnership, there are so many exclusive benefits for Wheel’s Up members to take advantage of,” said Lori Kittle, Senior Vice President of Loyalty at Landry’s. “Landry’s has numerous properties across the country’s top-tier destinations, and we look forward to welcoming our new Wheels Up members with a first-class experience and exceptional service inside our restaurants and during their stay at our award-winning Post-Oak Hotel.”
