AF5147 – EDI – CDG

Okay – picture the scene:

Mr and Mrs Travel Freak.  3 very excited Junior Travel Freaks (JTFs).  A cold morning.  A 40 minute drive to the airport.  10 bags, 2 car seats and a buggy.  A 6:20 flight which was the beginning of a 17-hour journey.

We parked the car on time and as Elite Flying Blue jumped the queue to check in.  All good so far with check-in being fast and efficient.

As perhaps one of the most frequent users of Edinburgh Airport (and, subsequently,  the Servisair lounge).  A quick word and a smile with a certain somebody (you know who you are; thank you once again) had secured lounge access for the whole gang so 14 bottles (they really are, very small) of orange juice and a few packets of chocolate chip shortbread later and the JTFs were whining just a little bit less.

Rendezvous Lounge Douglas Airport, IOM

Douglas airport is small. Now I appreciate that the island is kinda small anyway but the airport is very small.

Having past security (shoes, belts, money all out into separate trays…) I was faced with the Rendezvous Lounge.

The lounge was fairly standard (Priority Pass got me in) with Wi-Fi, beer (albeit Stella), wine and some spirits. The everlasting supply of crackers and cheese was available along with some bread and a toaster. There was also a pot of hot soup which I thought was a nice touch; I am always looking for something more substantial than bloody crackers and cheese.

The lounge seemed to be sponsored by some hotel (the fact that I can’t remember which perhaps says something about their marketing strategy) but they had some really nice own brand cookies, tea and coffee.

All in all a fairly standard experience – but an awful lot more fun than what was available past security outside the lounge.
