BUD Lounge

am Flying BUD-DOH on Thursday, flight is leaving at 11pm. According to QR website, they use the "Platinum lounge" in BUD, however, it seems to close at 8:30pm.
Are there any other options after 8:30 (besides sitting in the terminal) for QR premium passengers?

thanks

Iím sorry, I canít help you with your opening hours query, but having visited the lounge three weeks ago today (for a BA BUD LHR flight) I can report that itís nothing to get too excited about.

My refreshments consisted of a bowl of soup, a bag of crisps and a gin and tonic (I spent three minutes looking for bottles of tonic only to realise it is obtainable from the drinks dispenser).

Agree, not too exciting as a lounge. Was there twice last month, flying QR they werenít initially going to let us in as had mobile BPs and no lounge invite but after asking if they seriously required us to go back through passport control to get one they let us in anyway. Flying BA on the delayed last flight home a few days later they said no lounge invite needed and didnít ask us to leave at 8.30pm (we were there til 8.45ish).

My recollection is amusement at the staff putting out two or three family pack size of crisps which were seized upon in a flash. Replenished every 30 mins or so. Plus it being very busy and the polite requests Ďis this seat takení to a guy whose bag was entitled to a spare seat when people were standing.

Hi, the lounge stays open until the boarding of QR flight starts. However, as stated, nothing to write home about!

It's basically just "the lounge" at BUD that's used by all premium passengers (and priority pass). It's small, with not much in it, and crowded, as many on the thread have noted.

Thanks all! Will be “enjoying” the lounge tonight, but the idea of upcoming flights in QR J to the Maldives will surely comfort me
