Lounge:Lufthansa Business Class Lounge Where: Munich (MUC) Non-Schengen – Gate H24
Seating: Rows and rows of cafe-style seating seems a bit much. The result is a Lufthansa Business Class Lounge that feels more like a cafeteria. Tall, fixed bar stools at tall communal tables are mixed into a sea of tables and chairs.
If you can find a more comfortable deep, leather lounger it’ll be toward the back of the lounge in an area that’s semi-secluded with a large screen TV and a selection of periodicals. We’ll call it the tiny library. The tiny library is made up of a few long rows of lounge chairs separated by power-equipped consoles. At busier times, these might be the seats you have to armwrestle or negotiate for.
Food/Drink: There was little to be found at the buffet. A few packaged breakfast items were out along with typical snack items. Everything was nicely displayed, but “everything” isn’t much.
Drink selection is good…if you like beer. As in the Schengen Lufthansa Business Class Lounge, a variety of bottled beer sits in a tub next to the Lowenbrau tap. Spirits are a mixed bag but mostly lower-shelf.
Wi-fi/Connectivity: Wi-fi works fine here. Without doing a speed test, we’d guess the information was flowing to our connected devices at around 2008 speeds. Not terrible.
Power ports can be found 1 for a person in the area with the deep lounge seats, but in the large cafe seating area they’re fewer and far between.
Service: Check-in was swift and friendly. The shower attendant was kind enough to keep us up to date on our status on line and relating to our angst over how long the shower-ers ahead of us were taking.
Showers: Not many. We counted 2 shower rooms which kept us waiting for a bit. Once inside we found a very basic but spacious room with a standard shower and a little sink.
Summary: Put out a more robust food selection, build 2 more showers and throw in some more of those comfy seats. Those are my 3 reccomendations for this Lufthanssa lounge at Munich Airport. The smiley front desk people and the helpful shower lady you can keep. You can also keep the big windows and clean design. The space itself is very pleasant, even if i have to sit on an uncomfortable bar stool to enjoy it.
Rating: 3 hops (of 5).
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.
