I would doubt it. BKK makes sense due to the 6 daily flights

Still not convinced. People also liked the lounge in Dubai. However, while it LOOKED good, the food and beverages were inferior to the first class lounge located next door for QR Platinums travelling Y. In BKK, I like JAL and Cathay lounges. Solid food and beverage options. Anyways, I have a SriLankan J class trip through in April and a QR J class booked through in August so I will give it a go then. However, if I am staying honest, I am looking forward to the Malaysia Airlines first class reopening in KUL more than this QR Lounge.

Loved the shower! Let’s just say they have jets in all the right places...
What sort of places??
How are the Rituals? I really hope they could use Aesop...

Until Qatar sorts it out with Saudi Arabia, it's likely he would be asleep at the wheel for quite a while...
They will soon run out of places where they can fly new routes to I'd think.

Qatar lounge at DXB? Most definitely closed: evidence of its existence removed.

The new lounge does look nice. I look forward to a few hours in there next month (perhaps with an intermission in the WY lounge).

Make sure you can cover your shoulders if you are female.
Champagne today is Pommery.

I'm in here now. It's very nice. If anything it feels to have a slightly larger footprint than the one at LHR. The showers are still shut for reasons which should be obvious to those of this parish, and you may need to ask for ice to be put in your gin and tonic (other beverage choices available), but in my opinion it's a big step up from the Thai and JAL lounges I visited here a few weeks ago. Some may prefer cook to order or a different fizz, and it's clearly still bedding in, but in my mind it's a definite enhancement for QR travellers ex-BKK

Do they have some PJ sets behind reception to allow customers to redeem themselves?
