Yeah, it is nuts.

Privium members can now use their new Schengen lounge, but it closes at 1 p.m., which is not very useful if you have an afternoon flight.

What a relief to learn that my favorite rodent is alive and kicking. Limited opening hours and restricted catering had me worried about its well being.

So good to hear that Crown Mouse can overcome adversity and thrive even in a pandemic

According to travel industry data, MICE have taken a bit hit during the pandemic. But the resident mouse in the crown lounge keeps on thriving.

I heard that the mouse is calling for a protest at the lounge tomorrow, to complain about the no alcohol policy after 8pm

By that time the mouse will be far from sober, so the protest could easily turn into a riot.

Let's hope the Marechaussee don't tase the poor critter if it refuses to put its hands behind its back, which is a pretty hard thing for a mouse to do.

Keep climbing, Crown Mouse. <apologies for quoting the DL slogan>

How do we know it's the same mouse? Are there any distinguishing features? Does the mouse have Privium?

Just as a reminder, the Schengen lounge 25 is open until 18h00 and appears to have been redesigned for the better. Food is now served to you and the sandwich options, such as the egg and salad one here, or the muesli with yoghurt and fruit, are rather good. The hot breakfast options were somewhat cold and not great in terms of quality.

Indeed, a gigantic sign at the entrance announces this now.





Very quiet there this morning, walking past I didn't see more than a few dozen patrons.

A bit off-topic, but during these days when airlines are doing massive layoffs, it's good to see that some jobs in the industry still have a future.
Be it for menus or lounge opening hours, it seems that putting stickers is still in high demand at KLM.

Maybe they are even hiring to keep up with the needs.

Yes, it made the lounge very livable and pleasant. It had become rather unsupportable before all this.
We'll see how it is next week when I head back through Amsterdam.

I visited the new Privium Schengen lounge that morning. I was the first, only and most likely last guest that day (it closes at 1 p.m.). Had a long and interesting conversation with the lounge agent, who was on secondment from the VIP lounge.

I visited the non-Schengen lounge yesterday evening, as the flights were after 18h00 so had to pass thru passport control and security.
As mentioned, alcohol service ends at 20h and the lounge closes at 21h.

The food wasn't very good for the dinner service. It looks okay in appearance, but was devoid of any flavour.

Did you have a chance to take a look at the Non-Schengen Lounge opening time?
