TUI PE - Aspire lounge @Manchester Airport T2 - is it that bad?

Hi,

Weve booked to fly PE with TUI and understand the lounge we get to use at Manchester Airport is the Aspire Lounge. Reading reviews it gets a pretty bad name from no room, bad food, surly service and entire sections reserved for other airlines.

Is it really that bad?

Carl

When we flew Tui PE, we were bumped out of the lounge and had 15pp vouchers to use instead, this was because they had too many PE customers to fit them all in the lounge, I think there were 3 flights in a short space of time, Id read the reviews and was happy to go to frankie and bennys instead x

Been twice, not liked it (2nd time hubby booked as a surprise! )
hardly any choice of food, the food runs out, not cleaned up enough (tables full of dirty crockery)
As for asking for wine from behinds the bar, I only drink 2 glasses with lemondade in with it so hardly 'caning it', but it was as if the cost was coming out of the barmaid's own pocket so sour was the face

Itwas very busy, so experiences might differ at different times of day I suppose, maybe we were unlucky...

We just go for food elsewhere now as it wasn't as relaxing an atmosphere as we had hoped for.

Hmmm thanks all as I feared. We usually go in the Escape Lounge which is quite decent and have been in the v-room a couple of times.

Sounds like at other airports you go in the No1 Lounges which sound good but Manchesters got the short straw by the look of it.

Oh well Ill either book the Escape Lounge or hope the Aspire is full and TUI give us a voucher.

We last flew TUI PE in 2016 from Manchester T2 and we were in the Escape Lounge which looked to have recently been refitted as we were last in there 5 years previous. It was great.

I think it may depend on demand as I believe they dont just use one lounge there so perhaps youll get it, perhaps not.

We used it last June flying Tui pe and if all you want is WiFi, a bacon roll and a drink youll be fine.
Its nothing special. Certainly wouldnt pay for it. Kept DH and DS happy for a few hours until we boarded.
They ate bacon butties, yogurt and cereal bar. I had some fruit and coffee.

If you want something more substantial Id go elsewhere.

Gets busy, and they turn people away when its full even if PE.

Hi, we flew premium with Tui last week, 26th June and were in the Escape lounge, much better than Aspire.
