BRU lounges

I am flying AA ORD-BRU-BCN-BRU-ORD business class (only on the TATL legs). I have access to the SN Brussels lounge by class and to the BA lounge by elite status. Where should I spend my time?

Enjoy both ...they are right next to each other. I would not call either one a memorable experience, however. Aint no Concorde Room..........

I prefer the BA lounge to SN's: larger, brighter & more updated decor, decent breakfast items. One thing is that the restrooms are outside the lounge, while SN's has both restrooms and showers.

Others seem to agree: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/ameri...u-lounges.html.

One strategy: Shower at SN, nosh at BA.

BA lounge all the way

Checking in to my flight BRU-JFK, the agent said I could access either lounge. I asked her which she thought was better, and her response was the BA lounge because it'd be less crowded and there'd be a better morning food spread.

So, I headed to the SN lounge, which was crowded. Seeing as it was the morning, I didn't need a shower, so I went to the BA lounge. I thought it was hands down better, both for the food and the decor/comfort.

Don't forget your AAdvantage card showing your oneworld status. You don't want the BA lounge dragons making a fuss...

No probs ... Flickr has some good BRU BA lounge pix that pretty much match up with other FT'ers descriptions.
