It's nicer than many lounges I've been to (and has more kosher snacks than many lounges ;))

Drinks aren't better IMHO, only kosher snacks are Milano cookies IME, newspapers can be had at the Dan lounge as well.

You're right about the showers.

Then you've never tried Amaretto with ginger ale ;)
The Dan lounge does not let you take newspapers with you, the UC does.

Cereal+fruit is kosher parve+ other kosher dairy stuff as well.

Besides for stealing what they clearly say not to take out of the lounge?

Doesnt UC say that too? I'm pretty sure they do.

Either way, once I read the paper במקום שהמלך נכנס לבדו nobody else will use it and its worthless.

Definitely not in PMCO clubs.
PMUA clubs used to prohibit it, not sure if they still do.

And the family room. That has been the best amenity that I personally have experienced in a lounge. It's such a smart win/win move, its surprising more airlines haven't implemented it

Part of the difference TLV is much nicer than EWR, so the lounge is less helpful.
