Review : Lufthansa Business Lounge – Frankfurt – Gates B

As part of a personal trip to London, I booked a last minute Business ticket on Lufthansa via Frankfurt, still in my quest for Star Alliance Gold status that comes with many benefits

I will not report the Paris-Frankfurt flight nor the Lufthansa Business lounge at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle, Bertrand having already done so.

Here I am, freshly disembarked from an excellent flight in Business class between Paris and Frankfurt, after passing immigration.

Location of the lounge

The Lufthansa Business lounge at gate B is located airside in Frankfurt. Once you have passed immigration, the signage is clear.

It’s hard not to find the lounges…

As Lufthansa does in its hubs, the eligibility check for access to the lounge is done before the door, the agents inside being dedicated to customer service. A good idea.

Architecture and service

The lounge is located on the first floor, and is completely circular. This makes the space very pleasant and bright, even though views of the tarmac are obstructed by a windowed waiting room.

The distant tarmac, what a shame!
Lounge area

Despite its size, the lounge is very often crowded as it was on this day, a Friday in the middle of the day.

A busy lounge

The areas are diverse, and allow you to relax in comfortable leather armchairs or on high tables to eat or to work.

Phone booths, to avoid assholes calling in the lounge, an excellent idea!

The staff is present in large numbers, and the clearing is done without any problem.

Restaurants

As in all its lounges, Lufthansa’s catering is always varied and offers hot and cold starters, hot dishes, cheeses and desserts.

Two choices of soup!
Yum, the schnitzels!
Fresh and balanced desserts

Alcohol and soft drinks are also present and at discretion.

Plethora of softs and alcohol in self-service
Beer taps: no doubt, we are in Germany.

Note that there are no less than 3 choices of red and white wines, 2 sparkling wines.

Impressive selection of white and sparkling wines

That day, an animation based on rhubarb was even made in the lounge: another space with rhubarb juice, rhubarb cake, or rhubarb compote. Very nice initiative, and it puts a little fantasy in the lounge.

Cleanliness

The bathrooms are very clean. However, you won’t find a photo, as the staff is known to be very sensitive to taking pictures.

It is soon time for me to board, and I take the elevator in the other direction to reach the boarding gate which is at the bottom of the lounge.

Bottom line

A lounge without frills, but which does the job: qualitative catering, spaces to eat and rest, very well maintained toilets. Perfect for a wait of less than 2 hours.
