    Does anyone know when it will be open for sure? Thank you for your insights.

    The sign saying ‘closed for exciting developments’ has been on there for years.
    No news to suggest an opening date, and as far as I’m aware they are still temporarily using the Cafe Flor area on a temporary basis.

    The below from Travel Spill posted on the 23rd September

    “Oneworld Lounge Coming to Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS)
    Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is another key airport with many Oneworld flights but no dominant Oneworld carrier. While British Airways opened a Galleries Lounge in 2015 at the airport, the lounge closed last year with no plans to reopen. That meant that there has been no Oneworld lounge at the airport. With the contract Aspire Lounge closed for renovations, this has left premium cabin passengers and elites on Oneworld carriers without a proper lounge experience.

    However, according to a new rumor, things are about to change. The old British Airways lounge will be converted to Oneworld branding. In addition to being renovated, it will also expand into the space that previously housed the Aspire allowing for a more spacious environment. The extra square footage will be a real asset at Amsterdam Airport, especially given how busy it gets with flights to non-Schengen destinations. Among Oneworld airlines, British Airways, American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian, and Qatar Airways all regularly operate at the airport. British Airways alone flies to Amsterdam nearly 20 times a day from London on peak days.”

    It’s 18 December 2023 and BA eligible passengers are still asked to use Café Flor opposite gate D7. The space is tiny and it truly beggars belief that this is the lounge offering at such a major European airport. No word or confirmed date of when a refurbished BA or OneWorld lounge will open.

    Many thanks for all the posted information. It is strange to me since one world pax would all use the same temporary arrangements.

    QATAR offered me a Euro 20 or 30 voucher to use at any outlet instead of the room they call a lounge. My advice is, take a voucher if offered. There are Priority Pass lounges, but they get full very quickly.

    Last night staff on reception at Cafe Flor told me that the new One World lounge should be open mid-February. Fingers crossed.
