Vegetable Rice Bowl
on Air Asia – flight Z2 888
-Manila en route to Incheon-
2020 Winter Holiday in Korea, Day 1.
One half of the Sky View Lounge in Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 services Emirates business class passengers flying, which I’d experienced briefly on our UAE trip a couple months ago (see 10.295 Tofu & Mushroom Spring Roll with Hoi Sin Sauce).
The other half accepts random stragglers, including those with Priority Pass, like me.
As far as the seating was concerned, it was more of a waiting room than a business class lounge.
Though kinda skimpy in variety, the food and beverages weren’t too bad – I’ll take fried chicken and Johnny Walker Black Label any day.
As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel internationally, whether for fun or for work, especially via business class (see BEST IN FLIGHT), including airport lounge access (see in BEST IN LOUNGE), even if certain comments made on GMTD about airlines or airports, about food or service or facilities, may suggest otherwise.
On the plane, in furtherance on my desire to moderate consumption of meat (see generally 10.348 Steak), I ordered the veg option. Fortunately, Air Asia now offers a veg option (see for comparison 5.140 Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak). It wasn’t that great, but I guess I’d rather eat mediocre veg than mediocre meat.
