Update October 30, 2018:
On my latest flight, I had a three-hour layover in Phoenix and decided to go back to the lounge to relax and get some work done. Location is still the same but access has changed a bit. The Club added an additional room to the existing lounge you find in the review below. The reason is, that the lounge was closed for everyone except British Airways passenger from 2:30 p.m. until after the flight (BA288) departs.
To further on serve other guests like members of Lounge Club, Priority Pass, Lounge Key or paying customers, they added the extra lounge room, which operates now as a separate lounge in the time from 2:00 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. This additional room also serves Condor passengers leaving from PHX.
While the original part of the lounge is now open from 5:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. for everyone with access rights (like Priority Pass or if you buy lounge access) it will be exclusively for British Airways Passengers which fly in First or Busines Class, are Gold or Silver member of British Airways Executive Club or are Oneworld Sapphire or Emerald members.
Review of additional Lounge Room
Well, it is basically just a big room with plenty of chairs and tables. A window wall wraps around the room along 2 sides of it and provides a view fo the terminal and tarmac. Next to the entrance is a small snack bar as well as a small bar counter.
They don’t offer much for snacks and food wise its one of the worst lounges. They didn’t even offer cheese and I am such a big fan of cheese. There are a few complimentary alcoholic beverages like beer and wine and of course, you can get sodas at the bar. The snack buffet also has a coffee and water dispenser.
Above the buffet is a small departure monitor. The whole place looks like a completely temporary setup with no real thinking through how to set things up. Maybe they are planning something better in the future? Who knows.
Along the long window-side is a bigger table with a few chairs, which is perfect to set up a laptop and you can actually find power outlets there. The rest of the lounge is pretty limited in regards to power outlets, just like the old/ other parts of the lounge. The chairs look very dated and you probably think if they got them from a flea market.
The check-in was very quick this time, however, service in the lounge itself lacked a bit. Since I was just here to get something to drink and get some work done it was not a big deal this time. Well, I would have loved to eat some cheese.
