    Pay-per-use makes sense. How often does that yawning 4 hour connection between flights slip down to a frenetic 35 minutes? Delayed take-off, holding patterns and slow disembarkation may mean that you never even get a sniff of the lounge.

    Airports never seem to get any quieter. It’s always worth paying for a lounge to buy some peace and serenity, especially if you’ve got work to do.

    Also you’ve got everything you need nearby without having to walk miles through the crowds.

    Never been in an airport departure lounge. Like to try one and find out what all the fuss is about!

    Heading into a civilised lounge is the only way to begin a trip, it gets things off to a good start.
