This could be a review of 3 lounges as I made use of A3 Star Alliance Gold status quite a bit yesterday and today.
Lufthansa has deemed the Senator Lounges as Star Alliance Gold lounges though I’m not fully sure what’s the difference to the Business Lounges.
I used the new Senator Lounge near A09 and the one near B43 at Frankfurt Airport. I also used the Senator Lounge in Berlin-Tegel near the First Class check-in.
Now this is Germany and everyone is obsessed with standards and doing a ‘perfect job’. So it’s no surprise that the lounges look very, very similar. My favorite is the Senator Lounge at gate B43 as it has a nice view towards the tarmac and has an enormous array of seating options. It also has a ‘Senator Spa’ which is a nice name for a bunch of showers and washrooms 🙂
The food on the days was Bavarian-inspired with lots of delicious cold appetizers and salads (e.g. the Bavarian cucumber salad and potato salad). There is plenty of wine and champagne and other drinks.
The internet was fast everywhere without fault – probably the speed was measured every couple of minutes by a very German engineer 🙂 Over the weekend none of the lounges were crowded so lots of personal space.
Frankfurt Airport is not a rich hunting ground for Priority Pass as it only has landside options (and they are not really good anyways). Lufthansa really has the monopoly power in terms of lounges and does not sell access through other channels. So for Star Golds it’s great as there are tons of lounges. The only upgrade is to fly Lufthansa First Class with access to the First Class lounges and First Class Terminal.
