Clipper Lounge - Mumbai Intl Airport Review

I've read lot of bad stories about Clipper Lounge in Mumbai CSIA. I visited the lounge today not expecting much but was very pleased with the service.

Great sandwiches, Veg and Non Veg Meals - Biryani etc., good collection of alcoholic drinks and great coffee, clean restrooms etc.

Its among the best Priority Pass lounges I have visited (comparing to London Servisair, and Madrid airport)

I think its much better than CO's Presidents Club and Virgin Clubhouse at Newark.

Only drawback is it can get very crowded(but it cleared up 10 mins after I came in).

I thought that also, read teh bad reviews on-line, but when I showed up it was a great expericnce.. Newark's CO lounge is far worst, they only had crackers, cookies and some cheese with beer and wine..

You'd have to do a lot to beat the typical US lounge.

well .. i was thinking more in terms of a race to the bottom ..
perhaps a lot of people here have to fly UA / NW etc domestic on a regular basis, and they would suddenly count their blessings when flying IC.

I have used this lounge a couple of times when they allowed mastercard gold to access these free of charge.. But not anymore

AFAIK, most airlines who dont have their own lounge have a contract with this lounge and most business class and elite pax are given the lounge pass...

BUT, I hv not travelled thru BOM Intl for some time now.. maybe someone can correct the above or add there r some other criterion also..

thanks
Abhi

I'm travelling by Jet Airways Flight from Muscat, arrival time in Mumbai @ 4:30 in Mumbai, so my next Jet Airways Connecting flight is @ 12:05, can I access this Clipper Lounge until the time period of my Next Connecting Flight?

Also I'm holding a Silver Membership Card of Jet Airways, please can you please tell me where is this Clipper Lounge located in Domestic Airport?
