The other end of the lounge is brighter with more sofas, tables and another TV. Off the side of that is a business center with two computers and lots of stationery to
steal use. That runs onto the bathrooms, of which there are just three. All are self-contained, all have showers, and yes, they’re unisex. We showered and it was good, though to be totally spoiled about it, we could have done with some body lotion.
For reading material, as well as the standard newspapers there was a nice selection of travel supplements from the weekend’s papers. A nice touch!
Our only complaints: table service was a little slow (there was just one server for the whole lounge) and we could have done with a couple more bathrooms in the event people save it up to the last minute before boarding. Especially as they all have showers; we heard a couple of people trying to get in while we were showering. If people were showering in all three...you get the picture.
Also, it felt slightly weird being a unisex bathroom. You know, what with having a shower in it, and the door being frosted glass. But hey, if any airline’s going to give you a frisson in the lounge, it’ll be Virgin.
