The Oman Air Lounge in Bangkok is open once again after a one-month “refurbishment” closure. For better or for worse, it remains virtually unchanged.
I’ve written positively about the Oman Air Lounge before. You can read my full review and meal review. I prefer the food in this lounge to even the Thai First Class lounge and make it a point to stop by this lounge every time I fly through Bangkok.
Reader SINJim altered me that the lounge closed on May 2nd and also shared some pictures of the “refurbished” lounge, which just re-opened a few days behind schedule.
During the month of may an into early June, a sign was posted outside the lounge door:
UPGRADING WORK IN PROGRESS
Oman Air Lounge closes for renovation from 02 May 2019 till 01st June 2019.
Please use the Air France Lounge located at concourse F, near gate F2.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Would the small men’s restroom be fixed? Would the lounge get even better?
SINJim was in the lounge earlier today and sent me the pictures below. Put simply, nothing has visibly changed. He was told by staff that the lounge was shut down for electrical reasons. Everything else is exactly the same as before, save for a variance in Champagne.
While it would have been nice to have refurnished bathrooms in this lounge, I am quite pleased that it mostly unchanged…there was simply no need to update most of the lounge. Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) is full of Priority Pass lounges, but I find this one the best…and I don’t think the latest “refurbishment” changes that at all.
