    I totally agree with Jimgotkp! Are you flying a airline from North America ... or Asia? ;) The more important question is...regardless of the quantity of food...is it edible (quality)? :D

    That article was written by someone without much familiarity.

    Indeed, a few overseas lounges are nice, but the vast majority (of even international lounges) are nothing like those shown.

    The pictures in that article weren't even of the Admirals Club, but rather AA's JFK Flagship Lounge. And, the food in the FL was clearly set for a photo-shoot. It is never that well presented...and never maintained.

    Um, Julie, I'm glad you're "Qatar Airways' holding pen for business class
    travelers," but would you actually eat that stuff you took the pictures of?

    We recently flew C with Aer Lingus from DUB>ORD and I could not eat all the food we were offered. Too much. Good but too many courses. Great service & very friendly FAs. The Australian Syrah was also a hit. :)

    I've been stuffed in a slew of C classes, but the FAs most willing to serve food ad nauseam were with UL. On the other hand, JL FAs were quite pleased that I kept chowing down on the Y galley snacks, (hopefully) if only because no one else ever did; I've found the small bags of cookies back there to be a (up to now) well-kept secret.
