Think of an airport lounge… Now the usual image that would come into your mind is: A mid-40’s couple sat in a plush dark leather sofa, a book in hand, sipping on champagne with a faint sound of ‘elevator’ music playing in the background. These two passengers are enjoying a service they have paid for, either because of their loyalty to the airline or because of the class they are flying in.
Our usual and most immediate assumption is that airport lounges are a destination for lucky airline membership holders to use and enjoy, leaving the ‘fly economy once a year’ passengers to fight their way through the less glamorous part of the airport experience. Well, think again! A new crop of lounges has started to pop up into the airport landscape for a few years now.
