SN's lounge is not filled with AV geeks only
. Passengers using future EW feeder flights to/from BRU may appreciate the lounge, just as business travellers will appreciate the priority checkin/security/boarding. It may be a factor, so with jerry I am curious what direction they will be moving in.
Don’t read what I didn’t write!
Off course people appreciate the lounge, the question however is will they change their travel plans and increase travel time because lounge access is not available?
I guess they should have their own numbers, about the # of people that are using the lounge (on a C ticket, on a M&M status or other *A status) and they are taking them into account for the transition (since only the last category will be affected).
The connecting issue (from long-haul-excellent SN to short-haul-mediocre-EW) could be solved by seeing EW as a connecting partner (aka ThaiSmile etc.
As Poiu wrote, I am afraid that people like me (or SkyTourist) will be the last ones in the "queue". Personally, I live in (dutch) Limburg, so i have the options of EIN, BRU, DUS, CGN (even AMS). As a *A gold, I am opting for a flight that gives me the perks if the price is reasonable, otherwise I just go for the cheapest option. But to be honest, I have never taken a EW flight from CGN or DUS because they are expensive! (and i have taken FR, DY, W6, HV though).
