With a few hours to spare we went back to the Plaza Premium Lounge. This was a different location as we were now in the Departure area. The lounge was large and had a few rowdy guests. We managed to find a really private nook with extra comfy seats where I was able to do some remote work before the flight. We also noshed on some good eats like salad, fruit, cheese, meatballs, chicken tikka masala, Tom kha gai (ต้มข่าไก่), and sticky toffee pudding. Two flights away from Thailand!
PS - it's "possible" that we almost missed our next flight because we underestimated how far the lounge was to the gate.
Lesson learned: Always leave ample time! As we ran through the airport like fools, my lungs nearly gave out and I told DH to go ahead and I would catch up ASAP. At least one of us could hold the plane for the other right? (Theoretically) When I finally huffed and puffed into the shrinking boarding line, he was no where to be seen. Turned out the gate got switched. I saw the updated sign and went to the changed gate, but he went to the original gate only to find a totally different flight boarding there and that he had another jog ahead of him.
Fortunately we made it, but it was a good lesson learned and a lot of exercise I'm sure I needed, but that I wasn't originally looking for. Lol!
