Thanks for the heads up.

2 x CCR visits later this year so good to know.

Still, I think that this most premium of premium BA lounges should serve something better.

SIN

SIN has been serving Joseph Perrier for many years - at least they did when the current BA lounge was the BA/QF F lounge.

and this week again, same deal. Why not just throw the nespresso machine out? No Bailey's at the self serve First bar either. Had mentioned during last visit that it would be lovely to see improved champagne offerings given what I found in the UA lounge but still no changes. Food decent but beverage offerings pale in terms of whats offered at JFK CCR.

Had the same experience recently, in fact the Club lounge was better stocked with food (quantity, not variety, which was identical). The CCB in DXB is deeply unimpressive.

Had a very enjoyable visit to the JFK CCR last week.



I was glad to see the bar stocked with both Johnny Walker Blue and Glenlivet 18 (I of course had one of each)



Excellent cheese selection and the fig jam is perfect



The fruit infused water on the right is excellent on a hot day





Very tasty Pinot Noir and of course scotch refills



Scallops were fairly tasteless sadly



Lamb was decent but could have used a sauce or some more seasoning

I had scallops, lamb and the poached pear dessert in there last night and all three were absolutely delicious. Service was, as always, exemplary. I really do love the team in there. They are just so cheerful, friendly and attentive

We must have overlapped then! Which service were you on?

Service was fantastic and incredibly attentive, but generally speaking I find the food in the CCR lounges below my standards.

I left on the 116 at 20:10 so, yes, we probably passed each other at some point

Out of curiosity, what didnít you like about the food? I thought the scallops were lovely, although I wasnít overly keen on the Octopus that came with.

I was on the 19:00 service!

Well, the octopus - which I would usually love - was though and tasteless. The scallops were fine and not overdone, but just not excellent. I was also put off by the sand I found one one of the 3 scallops.

I had the tomato & burrata last week which I thought was excellent - really excellent in fact. A few of my fellow diners commented the same.

The lamb was mediocre - asked for it medium rare - but still tough.

I had the salad and chicken earlier this month at the JFK CCR.

Both were nice, but I was in a rush so did not enjoy them in a leisurely way.

Wine accompaniments were good, champagne was not - Pommery NV. Do not remember what the rosť champagne was.

Initially, I was seated in the new (to me) area outside of the main dining room, but asked to move. A little too much like sitting in the corridor for me.
