Qantas had nice food for breakfast ó excellent Bircher muesli. I wasnít as impressed by the coffee as many people had said (not the quality of a drink made by an excellent barista at a cafe, but an okay cappuccino) but it is made to order rather than from a push button machine.

The view from Cathayís lounge is much better and the ambience seems more relaxing.

Was at Qantas too early in the morning to want to try the gin cocktails but would love to come back for that in future one day soon.

Shame they no longer have any Aussie gins, they used to have a selection of four pillars - some of which are very delicious. #firstworldprobs.

Few random AA T3 pics (breakfast).

Thanks for the pics, pointless Lounge - should have launched a shared OW lounge (BA and AA) combined with a mini CCR/FFD for GGL/First

Would have killed many birds with one stone

And hasn’t AA launched a new lounge concept. So the LHR lounge will soon be outdated.

(What uninspiring middle America design…)

No more green ant gin? :(

PGberkshire Aug 17, 22 7:11 am

No wonder Qantas and Cathay lounges are so busy....BA/AA need to step up (or close)

Looks nice, and I like the banana bread a lot. However, I'd prefer to see a sneeze-guard and the chilled items kept refrigerated.

Looks like no self-pour champers in AA lounge, probably no champers on request too. Seems as if BA J has the advantage once in T3 (well, perhaps not over BA F or CX F). Need to get it at the bar in CX J but don't think there's a bar in AA J lounge.

but cocktails at CX J available
Also not 100% but possibly a sparkling Rose and sparkling-something in dark bottle- in the wine bucket in these photos.

This may cause heads to explode in this forum, but amazingly not everybody cares about/even likes "champers." :eek:

Agreed
it is an outdated status thing / people with limited knowledge of other "good" drinks. Seems to be a default that all airlines and lounges flock to however.

I think youíll find itís a preference thing, some like to drink it when available, others, including you, donít. 😁

EDIT: Also cultural. The British broadly created the demand for the modern drier style of champagne and have long been the biggest consumers outside France.

Agreed, but its not the only show in town. Just the one everyone seems to flock to - which means the other options get less funding.....annoying.

If itís any consolation, I ditched the champagne half-way through my first glass when I spotted Chassagne-Montrachet a couple of weeks ago!
