Before the refurbishment started, all the buffet food items were exactly the same in all three lounges. There was a difference in the drinks selection, the satellite lounge had Laurent-Perrier champagne, and often a better whiskey option.

Now, the satellite lounge retains the same buffet as usual, the 4th floor lounge does not have a buffet, but basically serves the same items plated by the staff. The soup, cheese, and bread selection is still self service. The 4th floor lounge has Laurent-Perrier as well now.

I heard rumours of that. Though I have not been there to experience it myself yet. But very good to know.

Im glad that we, as a community, arenít only complaining about whale soup

Seems like there was enough feedback to roll the policy back.

Yup. Was there yesterday and sushi set was whatever you wanted.

On the other hand, the shower waitlist was like 30 people deep with a wait time of ~3hrs. Went to the AA lounge instead to shower.

I was there today, the dishwashers were out of commission. No sushi, not hot items except ramen and curry, limited cold options.

The satellite lounge had a full menu and they recommended everyone to go there. I needed the shoeshine service and a glass of champagne, so no problems for me
