After a wonderful arrival on the Royal Air Maroc B747-400 from Montreal, I proceed to transit area for security screening. It was very crowded but there is a dedicated Business Class queue that moved us a bit faster.
All queues was moving slowly but orderly, not in any chaotic fashion I'd imagined.
After screening, we proceeded upstairs which is the airside of the terminal.
It is very crowded with passengers filled at every gate. There are just few aerobridges avaiable in the terminal. It is interesting to see the short and medium B737 flight of Royal Air Maroc use contact gate but the long haul flights use remote stand.
Eventually we found the Royal Air Maroc Casablanca Lounge. It is located downstairs led by a elevator and stairway from the main departure floor.
The lounge also host other airlines such as Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, Air France and Turkish Airlines etc.
Inside the lounge, it is divided into dining area, seating area, bar, and a quiet area (with shades).
The seating area is quite pleasant. There are strong wifi internet signal.
It seems the lounge went through a bit of renovation to keep its look updated.
The bar area is quite empty in the morning.
There are a buffet spread available. When we got to the lounge, it was serving breakfast but soon changed to lunch items. A few limited hot items with a larger selection of sandwiches, pastries and cakes. The quality looks rather poor though.
This is the lunch hot item, rice and eggplant moussaka
Of course, there's Moroccan Tea on offer! (sweetened and unsweetened)
Overall the Royal Air Maroc Casablanca lounge is quite acceptable, nothing spectacular but nothing goes wrong either. The food quality remain something to be better desired but at least there are a decent amount of it available. I have no problem passing a few hours in this lounge before my flight.
