A glimmer of hope was found in that my Velocity card got us into the First Class lounge ! I have never been in here before and it is a long sight better than 'bizniz'. We managed to secure ourselves a large couch and armchair and have each spent a two hour period so far lying flat on the couch sleeping - a nice change.
Also they have a proper kitchen and proper menu! - nice! A selection of danish pastries, croissants, muffins and fresh fruit for breakfast? I don't mind if I do.
Now just over 2 hours until the flight... did I mention the complimentary spa treatments ?
Sad to be missing brunch with family and friends at home though :(
