    New international lounge arrrangements from 28 Oct 2018

    I was in the Premium Plaza Lounge in BNE on 6th July 2019. I arrived after 3.00pm and the lounge only had about 10 people in it. The airport itself was really quiet! Eventually the lounge was maybe half full. The drink service was good but the food was mediocre. Initially there were Arancini...
