Lounge Review: Lufthansa First Class Frankfurt A
The Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A is one of three of its kind at Frankfurt Airport. While the lounge is less famous than the First Class Terminal, I still liked it very much. Read why spending time in the Firs Class Lounge is a pleasure in this extensive review.
Frankfurt is the mega hub for Lufthansa and even bigger than Lufthansa’s Munich Hub, which comes with two First Class Lounges itself. Frankfurt even has three, with two of those being located in the main terminal. The Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A is located in the Schengen Area and mainly caters for guests who are connecting from an inbound first class flight to the European Business Class and for HON Circle members, regardless of the class of service they are travelling in.
Generally, access is only granted to arriving or departing Lufthansa First Class passengers as well as those who are connecting to a first class flight from Munich or Zurich plus HON Circle members regardless of their itinerary as long as they are travelling with a Star Alliance or Lufthansa Group member.
Layout of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A
While the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A isn’t very impressive from the outside, it feels very exclusive with a document check on the lower level and then the real reception one level above. After reception, you are walking straight into the lounge with the washrooms and shower rooms (some with a bathtub) to the left. The first thing you’ll recognize is the nice bar to the left, which has an incredible selection of champagnes and premium alcohol.
You can also catch a glimpse of the window front, which features amazing views of the tarmac. The lounge itself isn’t very spacious, but as there are not many people with access this isn’t a problem. There are several seating areas in the main area of the lounge, which is equipped with high quality furniture and feels very homely.
Most seating arrangements consist of a couple of comfortable leather chairs, some with a curved (!) flat-screen television. My favorite seating option are the comfy chairs with ottomans right by the window though as those offer an amazing view.
Additional features of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt include work stations, a small library of sorts as well as a separated cigar lounge, where you can enjoy a selection of cigars with the drink of your choice.
There’s hardly a lounge that offers such a high level of comfort, while still feeling very private.
Restaurant of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A
What I haven’t mentioned yet is the restaurant of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A, which you can find “around the corner” from the main area. There are a couple tables in a relatively open layout.
All tables are set in a restaurant style and waiters are roaming around to take your order. While drinks are served at the table, you can enjoy a great selection of food options from the buffet. I was visiting at breakfast times and there were all the cold and hot options you’d expect at a luxury hotel.
Additionally, all Lufthansa First Class Lounges offer an à la carte menu, where you can order hot options like egg’s benedict or waffles in the morning and proper cuisine during the day, including treats like grilled salmon or a beef filet.
The service was very attentive during my visit, but I didn’t really have time for any food. However, as I had a couple of items in the Lufthansa First Class Terminal and the First Class Lounge Munich, I can safely say that the food quality is great.
Entertainment in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A
It’s safe to say that you won’t get bored quickly in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A. There’s an extensive selection of newspapers and magazines, which you can choose from. An additional choice is available at the reception desk. Additionally, there are several televisions, which you can watch the channel of your choice at.
Other options to stay entertained include the cigar room, the work stations, the incredible views and very fast Wi-Fi. If you have any questions, you can also connect to the help desk in the lounge (or the reception).
The agents are known for being very helpful, even with broken itineraries and new bookings.
Overall impressions of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A
All in all, the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A is an amazing lounge. While the lounge isn’t all that big, it never gets crowded due to the strict access criteria. The different seating arrangements offer a lot of comfort and some privacy. Additionally, the lounge feels very airy and has a nice view. However, the real highlights of the First Class Lounge are the additional amenities like the amazing buffet, the incredible amount of entertainment options, the very well stocked bar and the great service. Even though Lufthansa also offers nice Senator Lounges, the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A definitely is a level above.
