Flew from CHS last night. Lounge access was from about 1930 and they accepted mobile boarding passes. We arrived at about 1730 on a connection from MIA, and just ate at the pizza place before heading there. The lounge remains pretty much as per @cameramaker stated and still do not have a liquor licence, but now do have an arrangement with a bar across the airside concourse with drinks chits - I'm not sure if this was just for the BA flight though.

No, they do not have duty free at CHS airport. They haven't receive a liquor license yet. I'm sure they will build it.

CHS is on our agenda for 2020, but both the frequency and the flight times don’t really appeal to me. A more TP-efficient routing with AA is already under investigation!

The airport has certainly invested a lot of $$$$ to service 2 rotations a week for just part of the year, according to that linked article from N830MH ... I do hope it pays off for them.

?? Where did I say duty free? The lounge manager said the liquor licence was being worked on as part of the build out when he came over to explain the drinks chits system, but for now the arrangement with the bar is in place.

JER-LGW-JFK-LAX-MIA-CHS would make an interesting trip report.
