TLV lounges back to normal?

I overheard two lounge attendants talk today: the lounge at E reopens, this time only for a Virgin flight in the morning and the two daily BA flights. According to these source, for the BA flights only business/first pax and BA Silver and up are admitted (i.e., no OW golds etc.) The C lounge also opens when there's more traffic, according to them (it was closed today, Saturday afternoon, but the E lounge is to open at 14:00).

As far as I can tell, though, service/cleanliness in the lounges did not improve yet

The El Al King David lounge is operating normally, as is at least one of the Dan lounges.

E Lounge is only operating for the BA and EK flights. During the times the lounge is open only passengers flying on these airlines can use the lounge. Not sure about Virgin as per above.

Will be on the 6am Austrian flight to Vienna in a few weeks, flying in J.
Will I have access to a lounge?

When I was on a similar early flight to ZRH back in November (ok, covid was still more of a "thing back then) I was made to pay for entry to the Dan lounge even with a J ticket.

At the time, yes I did pay for entry.

In my defence, I was essentially a zombie and not thinking straight. Those super early flights really kill me.

I was in the Air France lounge in BOS (its a dump) and some lady and her daughter came in trying to pay, I whispered to them... don't do it its not worth it...
lol
DAN lounge when it first opened was better than the president's club so it was "good" but now. whoof.

Totally agree on both points.
