It is one way glass.

Quoted from this review:

ďYouíll be able to spot planes, gaze at the Calgary skyline and even see out to the foothills of the surrounding mountains through the one-way glass next to many of the seating areas.

Visited during the lunch time hour a few days ago and there was almost no one there. Very impressed with the design and speed of service. Food was freshly prepared with real cutleries and dishes and delivered within minutes. You order from a QR code that is at the place you are sitting at. Definitely recommend!

Only downside is that the WS agents are very slow in processing priority pass holders but with time, I am sure this won't be an issue. Since I was flying with AC, they took detailed notes regarding my boarding pass, not sure whether this was because of COVID contact tracing or just wanted whatever info they could get from me from the competitor. Also interesting that they didn't need any signatures... (always had to sign every time with priority pass)

I'm guessing the lounge will close if AB goes the "circuit breaker" route ?

Beautiful Lounge

Trying out the new YYC lounge today and it is really nice. Just
sit at a table, scan the code on the table and the menu pops up. Place order and itís brought to your table within minutes. Had a lovely breakfast. Now off to Puerto Vallarta for some sunshine and warmth. Cheers!

With the restrictions announced today by the Premier, would the lounge be subject to close/take out order only?

Stopped in WS Elevation Lounge this morning to check out the modified breakfast service. A doggie bag to go with oatmeal/yogurt/wild blueberries and a pain au chocolat with a bottle of water and nice cappuccino to go. There were only about 12 people in the lounge.

⬆️Are you able to choose what you would like in the bag or is it already pre-packaged?

12 people in the lounge as in 12 passengers?

It's prepackaged.

Yes, 12 pax just sitting around using the internet. Since there's literally no other activities permitted.

Iím surprised that anyone is allowed to remain there. So if youíre just using the internet but want to sip your coffee would that be allowed or is no eating or drinking allowed at all?

No eating and drinking allowed at all. They give you the takeout bag and coffee as you're leaving.

It's absurd but this has been the way the lounges in Germany - including the first class lounges - have been operating for close to two months.

When you step outside the lounge all the benches are filled with maskless people eating and drinking products from various outlets... Whereas in the lounge spacing is enforced... But what do I know, I'm not a public health official.

The real question is who the public health officials know about airport lounges.
