In TripAdvisor a poster asked about the waiting area since the Panorama/Business Lounge is closed for upgrades. I went over to the Via site to verify, and by golly there is a notice about it up.
Other than improving space for Prestige passengers, which is in the notice, anyone know what they are up to? I'm also kind of floored by them closing the lounge during the busiest tourist season of the year, when they are running huge, 26 car trains. If they are going to close it for construction, why wouldn't they do it in the off season when the passenger numbers are much, much less? That just seems crazy.
