Today’s itinerary

Location and welcome

Once I passed the VIP passport control, I was greeted by a smiling attendant who took me to the elevator leading to the First Class lounge. On the left, the Alpine lounge, on the right, a doorbell for the First Class lounge. The door opens immediately and I am greeted by the hostess who will indicate to me a departure from the lounge at 12:05 pm for my boarding to Paris, by limousine.

I am then invited to enter the lounge itself via a long corridor that leads to it.

Lounge design

I already made a brief report on the outbound trip, the lounge has not changed in 1 week…

I will sit in one of the two seats next to the bay window with a view on the terminal, and will change spaces according to my desires, either for breakfast or to work in one of the private offices.

I will alsouse a shower to freshen up before my work day begins. These are rather small, and unfortunately, with very little space to change. But they are clean and well maintained, something too rare in airport lounge showers.

Catering

The restaurant offer is excellent, with a small self-service cold buffet and an à la carte offer.

I’ll have a coffee at my place, then go to the restaurant for breakfast. The scrambled eggs and bacon will be delicious.

On the other hand, the orange juice does not seem freshly squeezed to me.

The pretzel bread will be excellent too.

Bottom line

A very good visit, much longer this time, in this lounge.
