Strange that Eivind didn't publish/take credit for this ground breaking news?

I have heard recently from others who attended SAS Meet and Greet in Stockholm this May that SAS presented new lounge concept of gym and spa i Oslo lounge.
According to them, it will be "this" autumn, but you know how often SAS keeps their words about promises regarding schedules...

Wow, I'm impressed at the speed of things. I just passed by this lounge about a month ago and I did not notice anything ongoing. It looks very inviting and cosy I must say, although I wonder how many pax will be using the fitness equipment - unless they plan their transfer or airport time with this in mind. Instead of fitness equipment, I would have placed a game room with Wii or fussball,etc. Or are they planning to open the health section or the lounge for paid access?

Very Norwegian to have lots of expensive equipment that will barely get used but that looks nice.

If someone has a chance, could they tell us:

1. Does the wifi work well?
2. Is there enough space?
3. Is the food any good?
4. Are there enough toilets? (the toilet situation in the 'old' lounge, after refurbishment, was not great)

It depends on WHEN you visit the lounge.
If it's not during the rush hours, toilets are used to be empty.

From the you tube video the only notable thing seems to be a barista. Seating area looks cramped, the sofa for 4-5 people (at 1m55s) is a baad idea. The excercise equipment is so totally pointless for a lounge... CPH has/had a xbox with kinect in the C lounge downstairs, you can easily set up something like that with a fitness, zumba or dance programme to get the same effect. Costs 1000$ total and works fine.

Was there for the first time an hour yesterday evening (the busy period before the 21.30 - 22.00 bank of domestic flights)

This lounge is - I presume - primarily for domestic customers. I was impressed! It is spacious, has much better setas than the old domestic louge, and much better food. I was there to late for the hot dogs, but the smell lingered.

1. Yes, at least for my modest demands.
2. Yes. It was not overcrowded. Most seating is cafe-style, but with chairs and settees.
3. It was OK. Three types of biscuits (Jaffa cakes on the coffee bar), salad selection, two types of bad soup, bread and cheese (Danish/"SAS-lounge"-type of cheese slicer). Selection of bread. One type of bottled beer in addition to the tap. A huge improvement!
4. Wasn't there, but there are toilets within the lounge. And showers!

Main gripe: only two departures boards, one hidden. Not one close to the buffet. Spoke with the supervisor, and she said that this had been communicated already.

There are many smaller rooms. More like the EBG-lounge at OSL INT than the C-lounge at OSL INT or the main room of the CPG EBG-lounge.

I wanted to have a gym in a lounge for long (even if there was a paid gym airside, I would gladly subscribe). I often flight late and have some hours to kill. I usually work, but exercising would be a better use of time.

SAS could do a separate area for EBD like LH do for HON

During rush hour it seems that seating is VERY hard to find... Not just in OSL but all SK lounges

If it's a domestic lounge in Norway, a separate area for EBD would not help because the most of the people in the lounge are EBDs, I guess

Is it really that common there? I never thought EBD was that common while EBG is? But then again I am just now returning to EB and SAS after years of self imposed exile... So far my thoughts on SAS is thank God for short layover and so I don't have enough to use the SK lounges my only exception so far would be Helsinki but even that is not THAT special. A good substitute will be to get the Priority pass unlimited.
But now I am getting Off Topic
