EVA Air Lounge: Not impressive, but sufficient
TRIP REPORT INDEX
We arrived at JFK ready to get our 3 week Honeymoon to Asia started. I was excited about our first flight on EVA Air's Royal Laurel Class (business class) to Vietnam which we booked using miles. EVA shares the lounge with Air France (previously shared with Japan Airlines (JAL) lounge which closed 10/31/14).
I was not impressed at all. The lounge was packed and while it did have the basics like seating, wifi, food, and drinks, it was dirty and the food was terrible, what was left of it anyway. Perhaps they were closing soon but even if they ran out of food, I would expect them to clean up.
It didn't really matter to me because I heard amazing things about the flight and the food during the flight. We connected to the free Wifi and had a few snacks while we waited for our flight.
- Stir-Fried Chinese Noodles
- Creole Style Shrimp
- Basmati Rice
- Eggplant Confit
- Sun-dried Tomato Rissoto
- cornichons (small pickles)
- grilled zuchinni
- small sandwiches
- Fruit salad
- Chocolate cake
- Plenty of free drinks
Plenty of urine on the floor. Not stepping in it probably forced more urine to be added on the floor. This bathroom reminded me of the public toilets in the Port Authority Bus station in New York City.
