Last June, I was able to visit the Maple Leaf Lounge in LaGuardia Airport before my flight back to Europe. Located above the security checkpoint in Concourse A, it means visiting the lounge first before heading to the security which I consider a minus since I personally prefer waiting for my flight inside the lounge before boarding the aircraft. Nevertheless, I was able to check my emails and enjoy light snacks before heading to the security checkpoint where the queue went quickly. By now, I should know that the lounges in the US and Canada are very basic that I can say those travelers visiting the Asian counterparts would feel like they are pampered 😉 This lounge is scheduled for a grand re-opening in the coming months with new design and enhanced amenities so I am looking forward to visiting this lounge again. Overall, a nice lounge.
