First step of this long itinerary to Bangkok for our weekend with friends.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
Check-In and ground experience
I checked-in online a little more than 24 hours before departure on the Lufthansa website , parent company of Swiss.
I had previously bid the lowest possible amount for an upgrade to First on Swiss, unfortunately not accepted.
So I paid to sit on one of the “thrones” available in Business on Swiss, in the first row of Business class.
The Lufthansa website was able to issue all boarding passes to Bangkok, while the Swiss website only offered check-in confirmations.
I arrive at the airport a little less than 2 hours before the departure of my first flight. I go to the First check-in counter, accessible to Star Gold passengers, and get my boarding passes to Bangkok, not without difficulty since the check-in attendant hesitated because of my connection in India.
I will use the Fast Track of the security check and will be airside in less than 10 minutes.
Location and welcome
The lounge is located close to the A gates of Terminal 2, just to the right of the security checkpoint.
The welcome is very cordial, and the bar code allowing access to the Senator zone is given to me. This area is located at the back of the Business lounge, and protected by a coded door.
The design of the lounge is consistent with that of the German airline’s lounges, a combination of camel and gray leather, white tables and light wood. You like it or you don’t like it, but you are not disoriented!
The catering offer is wide, and supposedly improved compared to the Business lounges.
I will however be disappointed by the scrambled eggs, clearly overcooked and of questionable taste. I’ll fall back on pastries that will be okay.
A relaxing stay and a perfect place for a short wait before your flight.
