    Hi,
    Is anyone aware if the new Plaza premium lounge is open at YVR yet? I saw a report that it would be open Q2 2024 but haven’t seen any updates online. Flying back from Vancouver at end of June so was hoping we wouldn’t have to use the temporary lounge which hasn’t got great reviews!

    Flew out of YVR on 27th Jan and we were still subjected to the temporary lounge which is dire! Fortunately the Cathay lounge opened 1 hour before our gate time so we dived in there for a very speedy dinner. Definitely avoid the temporary lounge if you can, hopefully Plaza will have reopened by the time you go.

    Yes, it’s a pity the Cathay lounge is not open all day!

    The most recent review on Tripadvisor is from 17th April and the temporary lounge was apparently still in operation then so it sounds like the start of Q2 might have been an optimistic timeframe for a reopening… https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g181716-d10417024-Reviews-Plaza_Premium_Lounge_International_Departures-Richmond_British_Columbia.html

    I haven’t seen an official opening date announcement yet, but it’s possible it could be ready by your June flight.
