  • It’s been a long time since I have been in a VA lounge; do they have the pancake (or rather pikelets) maker like some QF lounges?

  • @SibeliusI don’t remember any meal served by Virgin Blue costs less than $10, and that’s small portions of slops served in plastic containers and it’s 10 years agoAny expectation of a small meal (more than a sandwich) to cost $10 at a lounge will be (IMO) overly optimistic.
