The British Airways lounge wasn’t doing it for me (maybe it was the beige aesthetics) so Brian and I decided to head over to the Diamond Lounge across the hallway.

The Lounge

Just like the British Airways lounge, the Diamond lounge is located on the second level of the non-Schengen departure area of the airport.

As we were about to enter, we walked by a life size cardboard cutout of a Flight Attendant. Odd and unnecessary.

Check in was quick, though mostly because the desk agent was trying to move us along as a number of guests kept coming by to ask questions.


The lounge was slightly busier than the BA lounge, but there were plenty of seats available. The lounge had a number of different sitting areas – from modern looking dining tables to relaxed stuffed chairs to semi-private booths for one.

The food options were fairly limited, just some charcuterie, fruit, salad ingredients, and some biscuits. I wouldn’t say this is a major step up from the lounge next door, but I did fill up a plate of soft cheese to eat while I sat and waited for my flight (more than I was interested in doing at the BA lounge).

The drink options were more extensive – go figure. Plenty of beer (Hoegaarden, Stella Artois, Belle-Vue), white wine, red, wine, liquor, and juice were available.

While the coffee machine pumping out Starbucks was a welcomed touch in the morning, the Leffe Bruin on tap was my favorite offering.

The Takeaway

Not a fantastic lounge, though I did prefer this one over the BA lounge. Maybe it’s because my expectations were lower for this because this wasn’t the “Business Class Lounge” associated with my ticket. Maybe it was the cheese. Or maybe it was the beer on tap.

I wouldn’t say the lounge is worth coming early to the airport to, but if you do happen to be there, stop by for a beer.  The cardboard cutout by the entrance was a little odd and… out of place.
