    Great to see the Goldair Handling Lounge (Extra-Schengen) at Athens in there. It’s probably the only lounge at Athens Airport which resembles the type of quality we see in Asia and ME lounges particularly. It’s quite comfortable.

    Aegean Airlines has just opened a new lounge in Terminal A for Extra-Schengen flights which is pretty good and finally Star Alliance passengers have their own lounge there! That said, there isn’t a oneworld or Skyteam airline lounge there.

    Strange Tom because I nominated the T5 Concorde Room in my post on 1st March.

    You did – sorry about that. Missed it – I will add….

    Late to the party, but the Bidvest Premier lunge in JNB’s domestic departures terminal really surprised me: excellent food.

    Yes, it is a great lounge for a pay as you go European lounge.

    I am another + 1 for the LHR 5 CCR.

    The JFK CCR is nice and I like the service but the wine and champagne are really sub standard for BA’s second most important lounge.

    Turkish Airlines lounge in Istanbul. Visually stunning and a Great choice of lounges and seats, food stations, papers and drinks. Only downside is no champagne.

    My top 5 are

    1. Cathay Pacific The Bridge (HKG)
    2. Virgin Atlantic (LHR)
    3. Cathay Pacific (LHR) both First and Business
    4. United Airlines T2 (LHR)
    5. Turkish (IST)

    Extremely surprised Cathay LHR didn’t make the list and NO1 Heathrow did… tried SIA lounge at LHR and was extremely disappointed..

    I can’t wait to try the new Cathay lounge in HKG The Deck..

    Agreed United T2 surprised me and decent Champagne.. I was flying Turkish and thought SQ lounge would be my best bet but food and drinks there disappoint me.. they told me proseccco only before 6 (it was 4) ? .. walked out and went to United and loved that massive long bar serving champagne…

    Not exactly first world problems, but sitting in the Pier gate 64 at HKG & very disappointed with the catering in the restaurant. OK, I am a fussy eater but in the past I have always had a very enjoyable meal and the chef’s would always create something.. However the current offering has a disappointing feel for me and I was told in no uncertain terms, ONLY what’s on the menu.

    As I said, not first world issues… but the change of caterers (3rd in a couple of years) and cut back in costs certainly shows.

    I am sure some of you will disagree, but here’s the menu anyway…
