Mission to Jordan, Day 7 (see previously 9.266 Sayadiya) – personal deviation.

Queen Alia International Airport – Petra Lounge

As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel, especially via business class, including lounge access.  Any comments here, even the negative ones, are simply relative to other business class experiences, not complaints per se.
