    Just got into the MLL here in YEG and noticed that there are building permits and construction signs in it. Looks like they're adding something north of the entry desk.

    Possibly more important is that I noticed the lounge now has both The Glenlivet and Johnny Walker Black in the bar. Nice to see two options for scotch , but I hope its not marking the demise of The Glenlivet in an attempt to standardize with the on board offering.

    Just asked the front desk and apparently its the new contract lounge that is getting built. It and the MLL are sharing a common entrance which means you'll be better off packing your bags up the stairs than waiting for the worlds slowest and bumpiest elevator once the contract lounge opens.

    That's annoying... I wish AC had taken the extra space to expand the MLL! Or add a shower.

    Based on the MLL locations that actually have showers available, it would seem that the only people flying in Canada that stink are those departing YVR, YYC and YUL. Maybe the rest of Canada has better hygiene...

  5. We stink in YYZ also as there are showers in the domestic lounge. I'm not sure about the international or US ones as I'm always clean when I get to those ones.

    By the time I get through to the transborder lounges I always feel a little dirtier than I did when I arrived at the airport....and I feel like I need a smoke too....

    Still have not been through the nudie scanner! Have asked for a manual pat-down every time. (And observed every time how useless manual scan is for finding anything you'd want to hide ...)

    I got pulled aside in LHR recently with a "busy bag" which included a tablet, mobile phone, headphones, chargers, alarm clock and so on. Funny thing is, I explicity asked if I needed to remove the tablet and was told only if it's an iPad. I didn't realize the scanners can detect the brand of tablet.

    After the fuss was over, I discovered i had some coins in my pocket that I had forgotten to remove. Needless to say, they didn't set off any alarms. :confused:

    People really stink in DFW with the AC having showers.
