"Business Only" E-Lounge?

Flew this week for the first time from the E gates . Tried to enter the Dan lounge in the E gate area with priority pass only to be turned away being told that this lounge was for business class only. I enquired about Star Gold as I was flying Turkish and was told no and sent to the C gates lounge. Was this just a misinformed lounge attendant or is this a new policy?

Happened to me a couple of weeks ago. It seems to be a policy, at least as long as the B lounge is closed (due to renovation of the entire B concourse, I was told).
Looking forward to trying the E lounge in two weeks. Probably won't be much different from B/C, but still.

Last time I flew with BA I tried it. It was way better than the Dan+. Not up to the EL AL lounge standard mind you, but that would be a tough task.

Indeed it's for Biz/F customers only, which is why it isn't heaving in there.
I've been in a couple of times, and while nothing to write home about, it's definitely superior to the other Dan lounges including the Dan+.

Better food variety, a proper manned bar, decent seating.
