GOT/OSL/ARN/CDG lounge construction in 2015

I'm at the SAS lounge in Göteborg at the moment and there is some rather loud building activity next door. According to two large signs in the lounge this is related to an expansion which will be finished in June.

As I spend my Friday afternoons in this lounge and it gets rather full at times, this is more than welcome. Now if they would also upgrade the food offering....

On the main info screen on SK936 today they wrote the OSL and ARN lounges will get expanded this year and should be done by September.

I hope this includes the dark hole they call the domestic lounge in ARN. They are competing with the worst American lounges there...

lounge closed in CDG T1

got charged USD1.5 for juice on a flight where the ticket costs over USD300 from CDG to CPH + lounge in CDG has been closed for 2 weeks but when asked the Star Alliance Gold counter check-in agent for lounge, there was no mention of closure. all this to avoid giving lounge passes to another lounge? full cost carrier at budget service

The shared Star Alliance lounge is in the Non-Scengen area, so unless you fly outside the Schengen area you can't access it. There is a Lufthansa lounge which you can access as *G, it is if I remember correctly in the next satellite so it is a bit of a walk.

As long as it is *A lounges, SK you can access them directly no passes needed. But it would require SK to inform a bit better. No signs at all?

What is happening to the CDG lounge? Refurb?

Only 1.50US$ for a juice? Thats cheap for airport juice... last month in LYS prices started at 2€

Re: refurb

Note: CDG Airport will make some maintance work/shift of the ventilation system in Satellit 7, and the SAS Lounge will be affected by this work. The work will take place during Mid April to June 2015.
There will be some limitations and changes in the lounge to be able to maintain the airport safety.

I've had the opposite experiences more than once at CDG: You cannot acces LH-lounge if you don't have a LH-flightnumber on your boarding pass. Security guys won't let you pass. But, you may use the non-schengen *A-lounge; just tell the passport guys that you want to go to the lounge, at that you are entitled to do so with you *G-status. You then have to go through passport control twice, but normally no problem, just a few minutes longer.

Full agreement with my experience. LH lounge impossible, non-Schengen loung no problem.

That is because security check occurs in the satellite itself and there is no way for you to go to another satellite after that. Welcome to the crazy world of T1.

I was in this lounge yesterday afternoon very briefly as was nowhere to sit, we were offered 110 SEK vouchers to use at the cafe as compensation as we were leaving, think managed to get nicer stuff than in the lounge with that and in a much nicer space! Worth asking at the desk if lounge is horrendously overcrowded or you don't want to hear constant banging from the expansion....

That data isn't completely accurate. The SAS Gold lounge was closed going back till at least the 11th which resulted in being redirected to the normal lounge which was overcrowded.

I'm also not sure how "SAS Gold Lounge will be closed from MAY15-JUN15 and will open again in mid July." make sense, doesn't that mean it is closed from MAY15-JUL15?

Haven't seen the "POP Up" lounge yet, will check it out on Sunday when on SK903.
