The main fact here TominScotland is you are in the lounge 2 hours or so after the op was. Say you have a flight leaving at 7pm be at the gate 6.40pm, leave for the gate 6.30pm you wont have time to eat anything hot.

Assume your flight is 90 mins that means in the UK you land at 8.30pm, out of airport by 8.50pm and maybe in around 9.30pm/10pm. If you are flying in Europe you can add an hour to that and if flying Y you will get a drink and some crisps.

You probably have left your office around 4pm to get to the airport for the flight and had time to grab a sandwich for lunch.

So your 45 mins of downtime when you could grab a glass of wine and something hot to eat you can now have ready salted crisps, a biscuit or a bar snack. Fantastic.
