FIRST CLASS SERVICE, We decided to go to the lounge before our flight and weren’t disappointed. Arrival and check in was smooth and there was plenty of space to sit in a lovely environment. The range of food was first class and the staff were so attentive and couldn’t do enough for us. Particular mention was for Joanne who always had a smile and was so helpful We don’t use the lounge but we shall from now on. Money well spent.

Loved the lounge obviously had a lot of work done & set out to keep up social distancing. Lunch was great plenty of choice, lots of people enjoying the free bar, which is beautifully laid out. Booking again as soon as we get home for our next trip.
