    Worth a DetourNot a typical 1st class lounge but hey, trying to make the best out of it. Very tiny, no food other than nibbles but at least they serve champagne here. Lounge is tiny with nice views of the tarmac.

    Needs ImprovementReally poor biz lounge, nothing first class about this lounge. Cheap wine and liquor selection. No hot food other than soup. Basically sandwiches and fruit, oh and some cheese. Service was pleasant.
