    Default Couples airport lounge request....

    I love when we finally get to Jamaica and are welcomed into the Couples lounge. We are offered a Red Stripe or water but we are not beer drinkers so have to settle for water. The last time we came, I took up the Red Stripe offer.....we are in Jamaica after all! But after a few sips it was clear I am still not a beer lover!
    How about some other drink offerings?

    Hi Runnermon,

    The MBJ airport authority restricts us from serving any spirits in the airport lounge.

    Any possability of having some food in the Couples loung? With most airlines not serving food on the flights, by the time you reach the lounge you have not had anything to eat for quite sometime.
    Maybe some fruit and other snacks. Everyone is not a drinker.

    I am always craving a TING when we get there... but haven't been able to get one on our last trips when we arrive at the airport lounge.. wish they'd have some of that, as we too are not beer drinkers, and water just doesn't do it after a long flight.

    Beer is not a spirit?

    Beer is not a spirit. Rather, a spirit is a strong distilled alcoholic liquor. I will check into Ting. And, no we cannot serve food in our airport lounge. Their is a small snack bar just outside the terminal - on the way to the bus. Great Patties.

    With most airlines not serving food anymore, I pack snacks--cereal bars, pretzels. I wish I could take fruit, but that won't get through security, so I am stuck with carbs. I carry enough so I have something to snack on the bus also.

    When we were there in April, I was offered a Ting/RedStripe mix. It was good.

    It is a grapefruit-lemon-lime Pepsi product that tastes a lot like ginger-ale... best I could do! It is stocked in the room refrigerators.

    It's a good thing when the only gripes are about the beverage selection at the airport lounge.

    (And now sounding like an old-timer...) I remember when they didn't even have lounges in the airport. They just had a desk that you would report to. Then you stood in a corner and waited for your shuttle.

    I don't care for the Red Stripe beer either, but the lounge Tap also has Red StripeLight and that I find much more to my liking. Totally different tast.

    I remember that! All open air, bags on a table, maybe.

    I have had Ting and I would say it's more like Squirt or Fresca than Ginger Ale. I have also had Ginger Beer while at CTI and it was the Ginger Ale. I had an upset stomach and this was a great relief. But I do prefer the Ting over the Ginger Beer especially if it has a shot of Vodka!

    Yup, wasn't all that long ago. The lounge really makes the short wait for the shuttle more pleasant.

    Love the lounge! It makes it official--We're in Jamaica mon. I don't care what you serve in the lounge as long as it comes with a welcoming smile.

    Vicky,
    This might make you happy in regards to bringing fruits and other foods with you

    I was actually researching tonight because in the blogging world I have seen a ton of food bloggers that fly with homemade foods (sandwiches, fruits, veggies, etc.) and I wanted to make sure it was OK because I want to eat healthier foods than airport/airline junk. Hope this helps!
