Berlin Tegel’s Terminal A Priority Pass lounge is tiny. But I suppose it beats the oft-crowded gate areas at TXL.
It’s a very small contract lounge used by primarily for credit card holders, but also for Vueling, TUI, and Air Malta (tier one carriers of course…). It is open Monday thru Saturday from 6:45AM to 9:00PM and on Sunday from 7:45AM to 9:00PM. Like most lounges at TXL, it is located landside, prior to security.
The lounge is essentially one fairly small room with some couches, chairs, and tables.
There’s a limited selection of food and beverages, including coffee, tea, water, soft drinks, juice, and alcohol. Food selection included sandwiches, sausage, meatballs, tomatoes, pudding, and apples. Nothing looked fresh and I did not eat or drink anything during my brief stay.
No restrooms that I saw.
This is not the lounge you arrive early for. In fact, it is one of the most pitiful lounges I’ve ever seen. Even so, I’d rather wait here and have a cup of coffee or glass of water than waiting in the gate area.
