British Airways has opened a brand new Business Class lounge at Amsterdam.
The New British Airways lounge at Amsterdam Airport has now opened.
The new lounge is far superior to the previous lounge one, with improved lighting, views of the runways, and full height windows across one side.
The interior decor is much more like the new Galleries lounges at London Heathrow.
Certainly the new reception area, when you arrive in the lift up to the top floor, looks impressive with contemporary lighting and finishes.
There are two main parts to the lounge, the dining and seating area.
The main seating area has four banks of comfortable and private velvet wing-back chairs, and power points throughout the lounge, allowing you to work from almost any seat.
The dining area meanwhile has lots of dining tables crammed in opposite the buffet area. There is also a small white bench, overlooking the windows.
There are only basic food and drinks in the lounge, with an average selection. There are sandwiches at lunchtime and in the evenings. Other than that there are olives, radish, and miniature pickles. This is euphemistically described by BA as "Cafe style dining".
The new British Airways Amsterdam Lounge is next to the Aspire lounge - on the roof! It is called lounge 40, and it can be hard to find, on the top floor of the terminal building.
When complete there will be a lift to the junction of Lounges 2 and 3 as Amsterdam calls its terminal, and then it is a 10 minute walk to the gates BA use at AMS.
There are no shower facilities in the BA lounge. There are bathrooms outside the lounge.
The new lounge is open on weekdays from 05:30 to 21:30 Saturday 06:00-20:30 and Sunday: 06:00-21:30
