This is a review by our regular reader & contributor Manish R Khetwani who recently visited “The Good Times Bar” lounge at Mumbai Airport – Terminal 1B, (Domestic Departure)
I began my trip to the North last month with an Indigo flight to Jammu enroute to Katra for my trip to Vaishnodevi. My departure terminal was at 1B, Mumbai Domestic Airport. Having reached the airport a good 2 hours before my departure, I used the opportunity to visit both the domestic departure lounges at Terminal 1B, i.e. the Good Times Bar and the Loyalty lounge (which I will be covering in my next review).
Mumbai Airport Lounge – The Good Times Bar Ambience & Food:
The complimentary access to this lounge is for Mastercard / American express card holders. ( W.e.f. 1st April 2017 with the closure of the Carnations and the American Express Lounge in Terminal 1C, Amex has announced free lounge access for Platinum Reserve Card holders (overall 12/year) and Platinum Travel Card (overall 4/year) at the Good Times Bar.
For cobranded Amex cards of ICICI & Indusind Bank there is a nominal Rs. 450 fee (post complimentary access usage)
The lounge has a more pub like ambience with the alcoholic drinks (paid) in one section. Being 9 in the morning which was basically breakfast time, there was a buffet spread in the form of poha, idlis, uttapas, sandwiches, chicken sausages, boiled eggs, muffins, cakes and beverages.
The lounge somehow lacked the premium feel which I experienced next at the Loyalty Lounge which had better seating, was less crowded, had better variety of food, and a more soothing ambience.
However overall I found the Lounge clean, the food was good and the staff friendly. It could however do with better seating, more charging points and better variety of food.
