This is my second visit to the Plaza Premium lounge in Delhi Airport T1 Terminal Domestic Departure side. The Lounge was highly crowded the last time i was there, maybe due to acceptance of almost all cards and hence i wasn’t able to take any pics. However had a chance to visit again, solo this time and here’s my review 🙂

My Experience at Plaza Premium Lounge Delhi T1D:
I took out my shiny Diners Black credit card to get access to the lounge with some special VIP welcome 😛 but i was turned down saying that they’re having some server issues with Diners cards and hence i can’t use it. Sad! I asked if its common with Diners but they said its very rare and its only on that day they were facing the issue.
Luckily, i was carrying quite a lot of cards that day, so i swiped my HDFC Platinum Mastercard Debit card to get Access to the lounge (Mastercard benefit). The lounge has very good set of snack items spread around.
My all time favorite is Cornitos Nachos Crisps, the first one from left as you see in the below pics.
Apart from the usual stuff, i met a guy who swiped the prestigious Infinia Credit Card for lounge access. I tried to start a conversation with him about the Infinia card and he said that he was holding it for quite a time, as if its yet another usual card for him.
He’s a calm & cool person and was bit looking like “who the hell is this guy asking about my credit card”. Also, as he came with his family, kids, i respected their privacy and ended the conversation there saying i’m planning to get that card sometime soon 😉

Overall, its a very good lounge in Delhi Domestic Airport with good set of snacks, though i wish they’ve more space in the lounge as it was 90% full by the time i left. I still remember my last visit to this lounge when i was eating almost for half an hour without a break. It was quite tasty and they do have dessert section to fulfill the meal.
Update Sep 2017: Service & food spread is getting depreciated over time here. My latest visit wasn’t a good one and the same is being experienced by others as well. Access through Visa Cards removed as well.
