Private terminal coming to Tel Aviv

https://www.globes.co.il/news/article.aspx?did=1001281207

Translation of headline:

Fattal launches a private terminal at Ben Gurion Airport: $ 400 and you are waiting for a flight in style

The terminal, which was set up at an investment of NIS 18 million, offers a pampering pre-flight service that includes all the stages from the check-in for security and customs. Travelers who pay $ 400 to $ 800 per person will be able to wait in private rooms or in the lobby, to eat and drink.

Photos in the article.

I wonder if they'll serve the same crappy hummus and salad that they serve in the Dan lounges?

Well it says: Shani Shiferman, 40, who formerly managed the Dan lounge at Ben Gurion Airport, will manage the new terminal.

Then they will probably have very low standards.

This is just an intended upgrade of the Mezada lounge. Mezada was quite crappy in terms of executive aviation standards. I do not expect much improvement. As usual in Israel - major PR about nothing.
