I do hope the term Light Service does not refer to the type of beer served. Watered down beer and no bathrooms is not the premium experience one would expect.

All said, it is a nice addition. Perhaps part of a larger strategy that could help with overcrowding.

To be fair, the new bathrooms in this area of the terminal are quite nice. Much nicer than the YUL Domestic MLL ones at the very least.

Agreed.

For the record, I did not get a chance to walk in & explore the lounge, my "inside view" consisted of about 5 seconds of my right hand leaning in to take a picture ... so I'm not claiming that I know for sure what there will & won't be ... but looking at the outside dimensions of the room, I simply didn't see space for a bathroom. Or showers. Or a kitchen. Or a TV room. Or an indoor gym

AC has succeeded in setting our expectations for a really low bar.

Guy on the right looks thrilled.

I look forward to checking out this lounge. I often fly out of these gates to various exotic locations so this will be useful for sure.

To orient you .... the left most picture is taken diagonally opposite from the one that I took ... so the door that you see in the center of the picture, is where I took my picture from.

I don't see any beer taps, but they seem to have a tray of wine glasses, so perhaps there will be alcohol there.

Yes, he's definitely the most identifiable to me in that photo. I'm more interested in the rest.

He is also wearing his Rondelle on the opposite side as the others.
