    It seems they're doing some work at the MLL in YYC, leading to some restrictions on guests and passes.

    I was in here on Sunday and the middle area was still boarded up, but came in today and was surprised to see it open. You can see the bar in the background. It should ease the pain a little here. 20141219_131111.jpg

    Looks nice. The bar is a new thing. Are other MLLs going to go that way?

    I hope not. I'm perfectly capable of serving myself without lining because somebody has ordered a bunch of fancy cocktails.

    Interesting on the exclusive lounge. Might actually entice me to leave the AX lounge.

    Is it just me, or did they forget to repair the ceiling, paint, and lay new carpet ?

    Is there still a coil of cable hanging down from the ceiling?

    Oh, wait. It's an art installation in honour of the Unknown Cable Guy.

    My rule in life: if you're not sure what it is, it's art.

    My sadly-deceased friend Art Hakkarainen always told me that Art trumps Science, every time!

    I was in there yesterday and it looks pretty complete to me. The place was overcrowded due to two YYC/YYZ IRROPS but looked pretty nice. The liquid bar service seems fine as did the food service line. I still think AC needs to cull who can use these lounges as they are all frequently overcrowded.

    Dear Londoncalling:

    One does suspect that a grand reduction in lounge-accessing people is in the cards, thanks to the AQD bar being set.

    Next year's sign:
    "You must be at least this wealthy to enter this room."

    Agreed. I see this coming as well. But, I also see a separate lounge section for SE's

    Popped in briefly on Monday and it looks pretty good. The bar is complemented by a chef-staffed food station.

    This evening in YEG, the bartender told me that they will be renovating there and installing a proper bar. First time I had come across a bartender in YEG.

    Now waiting for what looks like an unlikely upgrade YVR-SYD.
