New TK Lounge in BKK

I not entirely sure if it is, or it's just a TK office under construction. I took the pictures today as I walked past it, can anyone confirm or rumoured about this?
(It's directly across JAL Lounge)

Looks like it's nearly ready.

Good question and sorry I didn't take note, but it was toward the west(?) end of concourse D, approaching E,F&G.

Near Gate D8 and the QR Lounge, opposite across from the JL Lounge

Hello. Is this a *A Gold lounge or only for THY?

From photo looks like open to other *A Golds. Seems like I can make out AirChina and Aegean among others.

My money would be on it being like the other non-Turkey TK lounges - open most of the day (not just when there are TK flights), and open to *G, Priority Pass and anyone else they can get to pay for it.

TK has seemingly worked out that lounges in select locations can be a profit center for them, not just a benefit for their customers.

If the lounge is available for M&S Elite customers, they have to welcome *G as well. I think Star Alliance does not allow airlines to treat own elite customers different from other members' elite customers differently apart from the most elite top tier. That is why *G is also accepted into Senator lounges.

And it will be a good news! Is this the airport in the world that has the most *A lounges? TG, BR, SQ, TK? All are of very good quality (Probably the worst is TG among those...)

There are probably 10 *A lounges in BKK! TK thought we needed one more?

TG lounges in BKK are an absolute disgrace, great news to add TK but it will be hard to beat the SQ lounge.

Yes, the TG ones are pretty poor. No wonder others such as Singapore and EVA, and now TK, are offering their own.

Food is excellent, but this lounge needed showers and more toilets..
