I’m here in iyanola lounge ( you can all google to find out where ) !! ! It’s really pleasant the barman is serving me very strong rum and cokes and there is a smoking area and everyone is chilled out and laid back a really nice way to relax before my flight back to the UK , which lounge has given you a a surprise despite not being ultra modern and futuristic ?25 Mar 2013
There is a lounge in Bologna Airport which I accessed using a Priority Pass. It was perfectly normal in all regards, okay food and wine selection etc.. However it had a Killer advantage over all other lounges I’ve ever been in….
…… It had its own security access to Airside.
I breezed through the xRay and screening without any of the hassle.
Absolute joy!!!25 Mar 2013
I have experienced several where the word “shocked” would be more appropriate than “surprised”!
Pleasant surprises – all Bangkok Airways lounges – which are available to all passengers including economy. That’s a nice surprise in itself!26 Mar 2013
Anybody tried the business lounge in CAI, old terminal (T1?). It is common use, and on the buffet I found a jar of instant coffee, a white plastic spoon, and a kettle………..and this in 2013!26 Mar 2013
or Beirut? The unsmiling hostess wearing a winter overcoat noted my name down. When the barman eventually appeared I asked for a bottle of water and made a sharpish exit.
This is the lounge used by several airlines, including BA.26 Mar 2013
In all honesty……Galleries at T5……The South lounge…….
Wasn’t expecting it to be so expansive , really enjoyed my time there…….
The North was a bit more ….ordinary!………Although not strictly an airline lounge Galways departure lounge is definately very Irish !!.26 Mar 2013
Gulf Air’s lounge at LHR T4. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was quiet when I travelled through, and the service was very personable – I doubt it would happen on a full flight, but it was still great, with floor to ceiling runway views! Great bar and good food.26 Mar 2013
For me, the Comair (BA) domestic lounges in South Africa. Especially Cape Town and Jo’burg. Great decor, roomy, manned bar, barista in the daytime and great help yourself food options. And even a free massage.26 Mar 2013
Best: QR at LHR, it’s an amazing lounge and sets the tone for what we should expect. It’s in a different league to any other lounge at LHR. Also, any LH F lounge at FRA.
I can think of a few that disappoint but none which I would say qualify as ‘worst’.26 Mar 2013
Completely agree re QR lounge at T4. Experienced it earlier this month for the first time and am looking forward to returning soon. I sacrificed my silver BAEC status by opting for QR – no regrets!26 Mar 2013
The QR lounge is all the more amazing when you consider it is a C lounge. It beats the Concorde Room hands down never mind the BA C lounges. The other best ones for me include TPR in SIN and the LH F terminal at F.
Worst, any non KL lounge at AMS, there is no standard so it’s a real race for the bottom.26 Mar 2013
