The acute dining area is more like an dimly-lit polished and upmarket fast food area, but food is good for lounge dining, the staff very friendly and helpful, but a bit uncoordinated in their service and at times not optimally responsive. The wine list is sub-optimal - no vintages are given.
The bar, also separate from the main Flagship Lounge, is excellent, and the wines selection is very good.
As the main lounge is the International Flagship Lounge, which is of Business Class Standard only, the First Class Areas does not reach the levels of many other First Class Lounges by far, e.g. the ones form Swissair, Lufthansa, British Airways or Qantas. It is, however, a welcome retreat from the main lounge and worth trying. 3.75/5
