    The Lounge - what refreshments/changes do you expect or would like to see?

    As a follow on from this thread:

    http://www.australianfrequentflyer.c...k-26356-3.html

    What would you like to see in the lounge as far as refreshments goes and what wrong with the current offering that could be improved?

    re: The Lounge - what refreshments/changes do you expect or would like to see?

    Nice thread

    A subject near and dear to many hearts - booze. The beer selection appears to be pretty awesome (though I'm not a beer drinker, so I wouldn't know). The wine selection is pretty pedestrian, and the spirits are non existant

    Now we've defined the problem, what I'd like to see as a solution is a range of wines, preferably showcasing some of the stunning wines we'll be seeing on board in the domestic J cabin. It's a pretty sad state of affairs when the nicest wine currently on offer is from NZ ... what about all the brilliant wineries in the Yarra Valley, Adelaide Hills and Margaret River regions (just to name 3)?

    As for spirits, solid mid-shelf basics would be great. Avoid Gordon's and Smirnoff (both paint strippers IMHO) and get something like Tanqueray and Absolut.

    For food -- hot food options would be nice, and a wider selection of cold cuts and grazing food would be great. Maybe have staff bringing plates of food around the lounge during peak times every now and again?

    Let me get a chip off my shoulder, under no circumstances should pobblebonk make an appearance (with all due respects to the wine maker its a shocker)!

    I would also like to see the continuance of a Barista beyond the morning session, its a big + in my books.

    better food options would be nice. Party pies and low end cold cuts should be reconsidered.

    Oh my yes, and from a real coffee machine too (not one of those awful push button thingies that QF have their "baristas" using..)

    I'm not a fan of the current CUB beer range, but I do realise this is being very picky.
    Hot food options like mini sausage rolls, quiches, party pies etc would be nice.
    More TV screens for those who don't want to watch Sky News (it seems Sky News is on the screens at MEL and SYD ALL the time).
    Some sweet food options such as cake or slices. Currently there are only biscuits.

    And once again I'll highlight the lack of diet drinks such as lemonade and lemon flavours.

    I'm teetotal and understand that airlines think I am a freak because I want to drink something tasty and without too much sugar but no alcohol, but hey I can live with that.

    To really highlight my peculiarities nor do I drink coffee so a hot chocolate from the hot beverage area would be appreciated as well.

    Some good suggestions, the lack of low carb options in lounges and in flight is annoying to a lot of people I suspect, I certainly would not use the freak word just because you watch what you consume .

    I would be happy just to see some variation of the food, both by the addition of hot finger food, but more importantly by rotating what is on offer. To be honest I have reached the stage that the same cold cuts every day leave me cold

    I don't think that the food selection has changed in any way since the inception of the Lounge, which I recall was 4 years ago. In many ways it reminds my of my former mother in law's cooking...we knew what day of the week it was by what was being served, except the Lounge is more like groundhog day...every day is the same!

    We had more choice in the "old" lounge, which admittedly we needed to pay for, but I did feel that I had options.
