I heard February/March from staff at the regional lounge. I would love to see Jan 30 though!

Surely the powers that be would have a pretty good idea now as to whether theyll meet the opening date published on the website or not. It is less than a week away!

The reopening date for the lounge has now been removed from the Malaysia Airlines website

Hopefully it can be done before Feb. 2/3 since I have onward flights between KUL and LHR.

I suspect it's another website they forgot to scrub the date from, unfortunately.. The reopening date has clearly been pushed back.

I've just arrived at KLIA today and could see the big work in progress sign in front of Golden lounge. So still not yet opened...

Any reliable source to confirm what is reported by Gary Leff of "View from the Wing" blog? https://viewfromthewing.boardingarea...re-open-month/
I hope not.. so looking forward to using it in a weeks time...

Cheers!

If you look at the source Gary is referencing, then yes, it is very reliable..

Unfortunate but also unsurprising. I don't recall any previous refurbishment that was completed on time.

No matter where you are, substantial structures (even a purpose-built house) are seldom "delivered on time". Fixtures/supplies are not always delivered to the building site on time. Then there is an issue of "cost over-runs"...

Have you ever been been to a shop to purchase something, only to find out that it is "sold out"?

You are right. It heppened with both the CX and QF lounges in LHR.

But what I find frustrating is how MH manages it compared to CX or QF. In the CX, QF position they were able to identify at least a month in advance that they would not make their scheduled opening time and they released these details to the media.

MH....no. FOUR DAYS before the scheduled reopening they just remove any reference from that date from anywhere they've placed it and don't say a word.

It is such POOR management.
