Maraming salamat for sharing the good news, RestlessHearts. This is significantly different and important enough we have moved it into its own thread.

Note: delays in the post becoming available are due to the FlyerTalk antispam procedures - new members with no or very few posts including links to external sources are sent to a moderation queue for examination and approval. (We've also deleted the duplicate thread you attempted to post.)

I will certainly miss complaining about the old Mabuhay Lounge

This renovated version looks spiffy! The mini-theater looks great (I like the vintage plane background), and the ham station+expanded buffet is an improvement from the drab selections they had before. Hopefully they also expanded the floor space. My only grievance (so far) is that there is only a single shower in their main hub! Can't wait to try it out in a couple of weeks though... ^

Is that you, romantic_guy08 of SkyscraperCity?

While we now know the international lounge was renovated, earlier in the year the domestic lounge was renovated as well. I wonder if there are any new photos of the domestic lounge somewhere.

The domestic lounge is small, cramped (during peak hours), and claustrophobic! Hopefully they renovated it soon too... Shame to not have at least a decent lounge in the hub airport...

I think they eventually will... My guess is that they are just doing it one at a time... now that the international lounge has been renovated, the domestic lounge may follow soon...

I hope they construct a lounge in T3 as well considering that majority of the domestic ops are there c/o 2P Express... though 2P is a hybrid-LCC, they did say that they wanted uniformity in service..
