"we had a pleasant time"
Scott Crowe (Canada)
✅ Trip Verified | The (finally opened!!) Mera Business Lounge is now one of two options in T-4 International when accessing with a Diners Club card. We arrived, quickly checked-in and found it to be rather devoid of clients. (this did change as time wore on) Still having it's "new lounge smell", it was clean, well appointed and stylish with seating for groups and solo pax. We grabbed seats in the far corner adjacent to one of the two restrooms. (one has a men's shoe buffer!) Once settled, we began grazing the various food offerings and was not disappointed. Followed up with a trip to bar at the opposite end and settled in to relax and duh... update all our envious Facebook friends. Eventually moved over to the bar end to check it out as well. We did decline the "waiter service" as I felt that ordering at the bar allowed one to be precise and confident that the order was going to be correct. A good place to leave those last few Pesos found in your back pocket that you forgot about. Overall, we had a pleasant time and look forward to being able to visit again someday. As a side note, the "other" lounge next door was available, but could only visit one. This one is "dedicated" as well to Air Transat pax who have booked a Luxury holiday package which includes a chit(s) for lounge access.(ours was only, "Distinction") (and unfortunately, I can only post 5 of the dozen photos I took)
"quite content using Plaza Premium"
Scott Crowe (Canada)
Not Verified | Walked out of the lift at T3 Toronto Pearson International pier to quite the surprise. The entire Plaza Premium lounge had "relocated" to the previous BA lounge area next door. A complete revamp to what we previously enjoyed. Still has the window seats we prefer, but still lots of tables for proper dining. A much larger bar area that serves the free stuff as well as paid specialty drinks. (there's a menu card on the bar) Early morning buffet was acceptable, the toaster area is now off to the opposite side. A whole back section was closed off, but will open as the need for more space is required. Wi-Fi was good, the password is on a card up on the bar. The "unisex" restrooms take a bit of getting used to but each toilet stall has it's own washbasin as well as a common area one. Only issue was that one bar server (a trainee perhaps?) was a bit lacking in her English language skills, a women who I took to be a supervisor was much better to deal with. Overall, as much as I will miss our oft used "usual seats" from before, we are quite content with using the Plaza Premium for all our early morning T-3 departures. However, evening flights will be in the KLM Crown Lounge next door as it's also with Diners Club.
