We have been accustomed to the famous Cedar Lounge while traveling out of Lebanon. Located on the first floor of the airport, this lounge welcomes First and Business Class travelers. But this has changed. This main lounge is now only exclusive to the Skyteam members as well as the Audi and Amex credit cards holders.

So where do the rest wait? Today, September 1, 2013, the new "Lounge C" has been inaugurated to host all airlines and Priority Pass cards holders who previously used the Cedar Lounge.
 
Traveling onboard Gulf Air, we have been redirected to the new area.
 
The new lounge is ten times smaller than the Cedars Lounge -  one square single room filled with low tables surrounded with individual leather chairs. Brown chairs on the sides around square tables as well as blue and grey chairs in the middle surrounding the round tables.
 
The place described:
  • Two strips of chairs one on each side
  • A middle area where round tables are surrounded by four sofas each
  • Two screens facing one another on both sides
  • To the right, the bar area with two fridges and a buffet
  • A set of bar stools face a third TV
  • Magazines are displayed over the main wall
Today was the second day of opening and unfortunately nothing was ready. No ice, no food and no air conditioning. Staying here was more of a punishment.
Drinks choices:
  • 1 coffee machine
  • Orange juice
  • Almaza beer
  • Ice tea
  • Soft drinks
  • Water bottles
  • Red and Black label whisky only
  • No other choice of Alcohol was displayed yet
  • Tea bags
  • Speculoos biscuits
  • Apples
Now you know, next time you travel from Beirut onboard any airline except that in the alliance of Skyteam, you would have to take your right after reaching the first floor and wait for your flight in this new "box". If you happen to try it some time soon, I would love to hear what kind of food will be offered in here.
