Lufthansa website is correct

Saw the "café" the other day in CPT. Since SAA closed their (international) lounge, there is a serious lack of lounge space at CPT, basically BA and Bidvest (common lounge for everyone else)....

For some reason, the A340 seat map has been loaded (for years now) even though the flight is almost always and A330-300. In my experience (3x) you will normally be moved to row 5, or the next...

I last did this at the main Thai ticketing office at the rear of the check in counters (near the stairs) and ask / pay there. It may be an idea to check availability beforehand, to save yourself a...

Try the ground floor bar!

By way of "compensation", *champagne* is available on request (as is fresh orange juice!) from the barkeeper on the ground floor bar on the left as you enter the lounge. All you have to do is take...

New Lounge?

Sorry to take this a bit off-topic. Which new lounge? I thought that was in GVA.
