Lounge: Lufthansa Business Class Lounge – Schengen
Where: Munich (MUC) – “G” gates.
Seating: Getting hammered with your workmates doesn’t mean you can’t get some work done too. Get it all done at once at the Lufthansa Business Class Lounge at it’s beer-hall modeled tables or a cushy lounge chair. Wherever you sit will be close to the beer fridge and ice Lowenbrau on-tap.
But you don’t have to be a boozer to stop in. In fact, Lufthansa brass probably would rather you relax in one of many seating areas from the small area of chairs around a large TV full of news to separate areas of more typical lounge seating and tall bar-style tables, also good for a pre-flight drink. Just take it easy.
Food: There’s a tower of fresh fruit.
Oh you want more? So did we.
There’s a light selection of snacks from wafers to crackers and a few extras like olives and tomatoes, but nothing beyond lounge-life basics. Don’t go too hungry.
Wi-fi/Connectivity: Wi-fi is complimentary and worked well for us at roughly DSL speeds. Several small work areas provided outlets for powering up laptops and charging devices. Ports are also found in many of the small tables next to leather loungers.
Service: Check-in is effiicient and friendly and impersonal but the reservations agents were smiley and helpful when assisting passengers with their flights.
Summary: This Lufthansa Lounge for business class fliers is a good one when it comes to domestic-style lounge perks. Decent amenities for getting work done and nicely sectioned areas for customizing your lounge experience are just a couple of reasons to like this premium spot. It also might get high marks if you’re prone to pre-flight benders thanks to the beerhall-style setup. While food choices are less than exciting, the light snacks are good and the endless booze might help you forget that you’re hungry.
How to get in: Lufthansa Business Lounges aren’t top tier so if you’re flying business class or better, you’re in. HON Circle, Senator and Star Gold members are also in.
