I look forward to checking it out soon!

The last pic in the article: Is that a security fast track that leads directly into the lounge?

No. It is the same door that avoids the tax-free and drops you in the terminal next to the lounge door.

No, that's just the 'usual' SAS fast-track.

That said, at least from the pictures, it doesn't look that different, especially the food area (the cheap feeling is still there). In any case, I will perhaps have a few minutes to pop-in tonight on my way to Warsaw - I'm going to set the expectation bar a tad low, though, so that I can hopefully be amazed (slightly OT yet talking about recent and proper refurbishments -but also proper food- one may want to visit the new Air France salon in Paris/CDG/2EL, the Swiss lounge at ZRH or even the new Alitalia lounge in Rome/E...).

Thanks for the answer.

OT: Regarding the lounges you suggest: I will not be flying Alitalia or Air France voluntarily anytime soon and while I do like the new Swiss Senator Lounge a lot, there just might be the issue that you won't be finding a single seat to enjoy the nice food (if there is any left).

Overcrowding has been an issue for the Swiss lounges for a long while. Annoying to hear that the renovations did not add capacity.

I find the refurbishment effect good in the lounge. The ambience has improved after the last waves of inconsistent design. But overall this is a super lightweight refurbishment. Mostly furniture changes. The espresso is much better than from the old machines.

The renovation did add a little of capacity as the F Lounge was reduced a little, while the Sen and Business were supposedly increased, however the lounges seem more crowded than ever before (both SEN and Business Lounge).

Now I think about it, the Business Lounge seems actually a little smaller than it was before somehow...

I can't think of any hub lounge, including the one in question at Copenhagen, that doesn't get overcrowded at certain times (some are worse e.g. KLM/Amsterdam, Air France/Paris/2F, LOT/Warsaw/Schengen just to name a couple that I visited over the last couple of days– and some are better, but that's the way it is generally speaking). That said, I must have been particularly lucky but, since the reopening, I've always been able to find a seat at the Senator lounge in Zürich.

Now looking forward to visiting the CPH lounge tonight fingers crossed my 'feeder' flight doesn't run significantly late.

That is a fair point, but have you been to the Swiss SEN Lounge during such a peak time (for example between 16:00 and 18:00)? The situation is actually next level overcrowded imo. There are whole lines waiting for a seat!

Not yet but, judging from your reliable input and surely experience on the matter, I am not looking forward to it either!

I am today in the SEN lounge in ZRH A and its much better then before refurbishment. Maybe it's Friday, I used to travel before on Thursday, but it's not overcrowded at all. Compared to SEN at FRA the same time, much more free space.
