Buns,

Hope you are enjoying the new facilities and have a great flight.

Pity about the shoe shine man, is he gone forever ?

Was looking at prices over the weekend and they are pretty horrendous - hopefully that might mean a sale is on the way and I will get to sample the delights of Gatwick's new clubhouse soon.

Yes, the shoeshine man has gone forever - unless we start a V Flyer campaign to have the facility reinstated :-D

I have to be honest, little other signs of "Delta enhancements" and the staff are making everyone feel special

As many regular visitors to the Gatwick Clubhouse will know, there was never just one person covering the whole time.

The shoeshine service was contracted and (and some of the guys shared duties with Heathrow). From what I understand, the contract was not renewed when the new Clubhouse opened :-(

Like you Whitehorse, I always enjoyed my chats with the various guys who all did a sterling service, but I suppose the call for shoeshine services in a predominantly leisure Clubhouse was always going to be limited - hence the decision
