AB Lounges how do they shape up against other carriers in the EU???

I was wondering how AB lounges (the AB operated ones) compare against those of other EU carriers, for example IB,BA,LH etc. Now that they are in OW and soon to be opening (eventually, hopefully sometime in 2012......) a new lounge in BER. What should one expect in terms of food, amenities etc?

From what I've heard there will be showers, conference rooms, hot and cold meals, a bar area as well as working areas and lounge chairs.

the buzz from the staff in the new BER airport (which is delayed until October now!) have said it's pretty lame. Don't expect BA LHR level quality. Figure it's probably like the Admirals Club with free booze...

Plus there will only be two major lounges in the airport, AB/OW or LH/*A which means C-R-O-W-D-S galore. Awesome.

Looks good to me. I think AB mentioned that they will be opening a second lounge in BER after the airport will start its operations and there will be one from AF/KLM as well.
