My 2 cents worth... Flew BHX-DOH in QR J around a month ago. The No 1 Lounge at BHX was decent.

Very similar to the No1 in LHR - staffed bar for booze (but free), decent seating, limited food buffet and the option to order other stuff off the menu (usually this takes a while in LHR, didn't try it in BHX). Seating was comfortable, but could get limited, but I believe EK use a different lounge, so not much chance of getting overcrowded with an A380 departure. Also appeared not to have a lav (it's rather un-salubriously located in the same corridor as the lavs).

At that time (QR034)it was pretty quiet and I had no issue finding a quiet spot to get some work done. All in all it was a solid offering. Nothing over the top, but all decent.

I'm trying to recall if there ever was an exception to any Priority Pass lounge I've been to (Dublin, Hannover, about 3 in Budapest, Montego Bay, Cancun, Vegas), but none have ever had a toilet in the ones I've been to..... Always the toilets in the main airport.

I know theres almost zero point in even asking based off past experience at other UK airports, but any arrivals lounge at BHX?... Got a couple of hours to kill next month between landing and catching a train.

joeu1998 QR only have arrivals lunges at DOH and since arrivals lounges are not part of the Oneworld agreement I am afraid that there is no available arrivals lounge at BHX.

remdk and smid no problem, thanks for the information. I had a nice visit to the arrivals lounge in DOH on a recent trip but wasn't sure how common these facilities were globally. Only major hubs obviously.

theox thanks for the tip, I'll have to wait it out at Costa!

Arrival lounges tend to be aimed at the business person, travelling in business. Ie: to get a shower and changed after an overnight flight, and head onwards to meetings. A few different ones at Heathrow, but district airports just don't have them...
