This Airport Lounge Serves Cocktails in Plastic Bags

Sometimes you just need to be happy to have an airport lounge available, certainly they are rare for domestic flights in Brazil, except some skimpy private lounges that are landside at some airports.

Gol, however has a lounge for international departures in São Paulo–Guarulhos International Airport, which is used by several partners.

The lounge is nothing special, and they do have food as far as those savory Brazilian pastries go. There is usually some hidden gem and I found it in an ice bucket.

There lounge saves money on a bar by offering pre-mixed cocktails in plastic bags. Classy. I wonder how many get smuggled on to flights. I don’t normally drink on flights, and a for a 3:30 am departure I was not enticed, otherwise I would have indulged my passion fruit (maracuja) addiction.
