    As at 8 August 2023, the Virgin Lounge at Boston Logan is closed for refurbishment. Virgin Atlantic Upper Class passengers are directed to the Delta SkyTeam Express Lounge further down the corridor. The VA lounge at Logan has never been any great shakes and has generally been considered as the poorest of the VA lounge stable: a refurbishment is well overdue. BEWARE!:The Sky Team lounge is even worse and is beyond primitive. The lighting is stark and intrusive, the seats are throwouts from Soviet airports of 20 years ago, the food offering is appalling: stale nuts, some barely edible olives and some exceedingly unattractive sandwiches in those dreadful plastic boxes that are so ubiquitous across the USA. Worse still, the lounge, apparently, has no alcoholic licence, so there is no gin, whisky etc instead they have tiny cans of ready mixed drinks and some (very) cheap wine options. 90 minutes out from boarding even those had run out. Forget about any idea of pre-boarding dinner (we had a 22.50 departure and wanted to board and sleep). Instead we boarded hungry, dispirited and extremely disappointed in the Virgin experience. Even the Priority Pass lounge at Logan (they use the Air France lounge) is a marked improvement on the SkyTeam Lounge. Virgin should be offering discount rebates to UC passengers for being forced to endure this ‘lounge’. Disgusting.

    Has a sandwich from one of those plastic boxes ever been appetising? I just always think of dry stale bread when I see them.

    There are plenty of VS lounges in need of a spruce up. I’d suggest IAD is the worst, so I’m glad to see some hope for it in that BOS is getting refurbished. Much of the lack of control in recent years was probably down to the outsourcing, which has now been canned. Outside LHR, I think JFK is so-so, and the use of LAX’s *A/NZ is best.
