Shave facility in Arrivals Lounge - Gone

Title says it all.

Not sure when it went as i donít normally use the lounge. Flight was late in today so took advantage of having someone press my shirt whilst I have a shower.

another item for the 2017 list!

I recall this being announced and/or discussed a while back. I went thru the lounge yesterday and the space looks funny with everything stripped away. I hope they repurpose it soon.

Wow... the person who did the shaves there was the same as in the departure lounge. In fact once we were flying back from SIN, me and my brother flew from SIN to AUH together, I stayed on in the UAE and my brother flew straight back to London. The barber told me in the arrivals lounge that he had just given my brother a shave in the departure lounge! What possible cost could this be cutting?

Especially when you consider that it would be posssible to shift staff airside/landslide based on demand

Oh for god's sake. I'm waiting to get on board to find bicycles attached to a dynamo and a master with whips to egg us on

And for those inclined, no I wouldn't pay extra for the privilege

The next enhancement, like the removal of chauffer service was.

Undoubtedly we requested the change through the heavily manipulated and leading questionnaire they sent around

I just don't remember the question
"would you like for us to remove all the privileges of the high tiers of the FF system whilst systematically depreciating the service and product and raising the prices"
But apparently we all scored it a 10 "yes please very very much and start tomorrow"!
