If you had the choice of improving an airline's lounge... what would you do to further enhance a lounge experience other than the current food and more seats?

Have always thought about whether a gym would do well...
Apart from that, barista until midday, open bar all day.
At an international hub like SIN, it could work based on single-entry passes (through both door payment and contracts, similar to SIN's swimming pool.
A gym would be handy, although i think in Australia it may not work, as most lounges in Australia are not transit hubs like Singapore/HongKong, so people do not need to spend that much waiting time at the airport... so unless you want to get to the airport extra early to do a workout, i'm not sure if the concept would take off unless you want a quick workout
I don't think it would really take off (mind the pun), because people generally don't spend much time in Australian airports, being destinations. The only case where they're used for transfers is domestically, but with the short domestic layovers I believe the customer (QF)/guest (VA) is more interested in a refreshment, WiFi and possibly a shower.
Hence the lounges.
I agree watson... I've always thought sleep capsules might be a good idea and cool, but again, Australian ports arent transit ports, so again the layovers are minimal...
I'm sure you could find a way to use install Skybeds in a part of the terminal, but we can't escape the reality than in Australia, connecting times are generally no more than a few hours, so the lounges suffice.
If you really want exercise, you could run up and down the terminal, then shower in the lounge. I do suppose angled-flat Skybeds could be used as sleeping pods, but the scope for that is limited.
Maybe a Barber/ Hair salon, to get that tidy up hair cut you just dont have time to get? lol

A under 10years free zone. If it's good enough to have mobile phone free zone for the comfort of others a child free zone would also be welcome.

Install all the Superseeded Business and First class seats in an area that has a view of the tarmac and offer table service
Make it a no "High Viz Vest" zone
Creche to lock up the kids
