I am sitting in the Spanair Business Lounge in Madrid Barajas in Terminal 2. I couldn't believe my ears when on checking in at reception I was told that for the "comfort" of the passengers in the lounge, since the 1st September they no longer announced the boarding or last call of flights!
Madness. Besides, of course there is only one screen with boarding information on which is visible from only a few seats. so, for my comfort I have to keep getting up and down to see if the boarding of my flight has started.
Great move Spanair. Of course - there are no interruptions from loud mobile phone and telephone conversations going on around me - no!!!! Not at all !!!!
