There has been some discussion about this, and yes a new thread will be created. My feeling is that once Flyertalkers come up with their impressions - that would be a good time. Rather than relying on external bloggers, in other words. I've been to lounge launches where an amazing buffet of food and drink is laid out, for the items never to be seen again.

Sound logic there. So the race is now on for the first FT review to kick start a new Schiphol oneworld lounge thread 😃

OK, but that's in the airport lounges forum, which is for lounges not allied to airlines - typically Priority Pass lounges. Airline lounges, such as this one, belong in the airline forums. This lounge will be overwhelmingly used by BA passengers. If you wait for a day or so there will surely be some content to read in this forum, rather than a subject title.

Can you please move the thread over to the BA forum then?

Let's just wait until tomorrow please. We can expect some content then, and thus something to read. It's easy enough to start a thread, but only makes sense if there is something to read. I hope you will be going to AMS before too long, and thus can put your content online too.

Same kitchen and, for the 2 opening parties today at least, same food.

Is it time to close this thread, the title is now misleading/inaccurate?

And, as you said, no Veuve Clicquot or cocktails today!

I've posted a review in a new thread; hopefully the mods can do their magic.
