It was 2:30pm and the lounge didn’t seem that busy.
My only thought was that maybe they were expecting a VIP group to arrive in the lounge.
I’ve never had a problem using other lounges on arrival (even with guests), so I’ll put this down to a glitch. ;)
I flew into to Adelaide on Thursday last week and thought I would drop into the lounge for a coffee as a Platinum Frequent Flyer.
I presented my boarding pass and was told I couldn't come in, as they were "protecting the lounge for high value departing passengers"
I would have thought that...
i had an interesting experience boarding VA2 on Sunday night at LAX.
I was with a small group (3 of us are Platinum) waiting at the boarding gate, when we were approached by a gate agent, who asked if we were travelling in business class.
We said we were Platinum, to which he said, you will...
I'm beginning to think this might be the initial influence of new VA Group Executive John Thomas (due to start in Sept) - the consultant king of ancillary revenue for the major carriers in the US.
Although I hope he heeds his own advice from a report he co-authored in 2007 on the LEK website. :)
