The Oman Air lounge is def not a place I would want to spend nine hours. It doesn't offer much in terms of privacy. The one or two times I was there, it got fairly crowded before WY flight departures as well. Food and beverage offerings were alright, though.

Unless you're on a tight budget, I would consider a day room at a transit hotel. Or maybe do some lounge hopping.

E gates - Priority Pass, Oman Biz lounge

Great lounge, lovely food, quiet, decent alcohol selection.

I got the PP as a freebie while applying for a credit card.
You don't swipe it twice. They will register two people in one transaction against both boarding passes. You will, I guess, enter free with your PP membership and you'll be charged the regular rate by PP for the guest. The lounge will have no visibility of this. They will just process two people on your PP account.

I would also choose the Oman Air lounge. Not the largest but find yourself a corner and feast on the food and booze. Both better than the Miracle Lounges.

Tried the Miracle lounge in the D-concourse (basically as soon as you pass immigration) for the first time and it was worth the visit. Definitely a very spacious shower room, and it's convenient as a pit-stop before moving to my usual choice of the AF/KLM lounge.

I just went to the CX lounge which was nice and relaxing and they serve Moet.

But the wanton noodles were quite dire this time around - the soup was very bland - surprising for Thailand.

I tried this lounge for the first time last month and I liked it quite a bit. Quiet, plenty of seats available, nice selection of both hot and cold food.

One of the advertised facilities on the PP app is aircon...

I've only visited the lounge on a contract basis for a flight to Bhutan and food and drink was sparse at the time. I'll give this another go soon then and compare my experience late night with mid-day offerings.

If I'm remembering correctly, the hot food options were soup (of course), pasta with marinara sauce, stir fried chicken/veg, rice, and the ubiquitous variety of filled puff pastries. May have been some Chinese style steamed buns too (not sure though.) Variety of mini-sandwiches, desserts, noodle cups (ick), cookies, nuts, etc. Two dessert stations and functional espresso/cappuccino machines.

I don't remember being uncomfortably warm - and I was there mid-afternoon - so the aircon must be functional. Wifi was perfectly adequate for what I needed (i.e., I'm not a big video streaming type of guy.)

Edit: I don't drink when flying so cannot comment on the quality of adult beverages available.

Indeed - it's well laid out to create nooks/noise isolation.

I personally like the area near the booths. It's close enough to the food areas but not so much that there's foot traffic, and the larger table of the booth is helpful at times.
