Unlike the other affiliated lounges the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge does not have a first class section (in contrast to Singapore Airlines’s SilverKris, United’s Club and Lufthansa)
I was welcomed very warmly and shown into the lounge.
It is a long lounge along windows with a second tier of seating raised a little from the window seats.
There is a small food section with hot and cold choices.
The bar is serviced and as usual provides a range of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.
The lounge didn’t seem as busy as the others I had tried earlier that day. I wonder if this was because many airlines use the United Club, or simply by the time I got there a number of flights had departed, hence depleting the number of waiting passengers
The seating was of a modern square design and comfortable.
I was able to watch the status TVs and walked from the lounge to board my flight very smoothly.
So which is best?
Of the 3 lounges I sampled on the same day I liked Lufthansa in the main building and the Maple Leaf Lounge in the satellite. If I am not flying first (I wish) then I certainly use this lounge over the SilverKris business lounge and probably even prefer it over the United Club business lounge.
