The non-use of headphones for phone or video calls in lounges has been previously covered here on LoyaltyLobby.
Again, I found it irritating last week when someone was having video call without using headphones at the club lounge of InterContinental Grand Stanford in Hong Kong and then someone was dealing with KrisFlyer issues using a speakerphone at the Private Room in Singapore this past Sunday.
Why people don’t carry headphones with them if they would like to have these conversations in public spaces?
I know that these are not private places, but I don’t have an issue with regular background noise such as when people are talking to each other.
When people use speakerphone or make a video call they tend to speak louder and have the volume at max (to make sure that everyone hears the conversation).
