airport lounges

Hi Does anyone know if you use the VIP lounge on return journey from Mombasa to UK if you are traveling premium with the airline. On our last trip we paid to use the VIP lounge on return journey.

When we came back from Mombasa with Thomsons premium we paid to use the lounge. This pleased our smokers as they could use the smoking area for free. The refreshments were poor - two plates of dry sandwiches. There was no Internet, TV was stuck on one channel and the air con slightly warm. Apart from us there were only two others in the lounge. Poor value for money.

Don't waste your money - its now 2,000/- per person and as Tembo wrote -the food ( or lack of it) was disgusting - stale bread and the surly receptionist told a couple to microwave a TUNA sandwich .!!! I have just returned and the lounge was dirty -warm ( air con off) no TV no internet and sell by date newspapers

sadly this VIP lounge has gone way downhill .

I was commenting on Mombasa VIP lounge which has certainly gone down hill.
