While the physical space has not changed, do not expect much in terms of amenities if you’re traveling through a Lufthansa Business Class lounge in Frankfurt during the pandemic, at least for now.
Lufthansa Business Class Lounge Frankfurt Review – Pandemic
My visit occurred shortly after Germany re-instituted a nationwide partial lockdown and that required a dramatic restructuring of the lounge. All self-serve food and drink service has been suspended. Counters that were once full of freshly-prepared salads, sandwiches, hot dishes, and other treats are now bare. Coffee machines and beer taps have been turned off.
If you want something to eat, Lufthansa offers a grab-and-go service on he way out of the lounge, which includes a choice of water or juice, banana, and a choice of sandwich or bread. During my visit the choice was between a German pretzel (bretzel) or a pumpkin brioche with goat cheese and thyme sandwich.
Social distancing markers have been placed around the lounge. Several of the chairs are blocked. Even so, the lounge was not even close to approaching capacity, with plenty of room to spread out.
Everyone wore masks, as required, though that did not stop one gentlemen from having a loud conversation for everyone else to enjoy….
Restrooms operate as normal, but the showers have been suspended during the pandemic.
Access is reserved for Lufthansa first + business class passengers and Star Alliance Gold members, though Star Gold members can use the Senator Lounge nearby and the lounge is directly adjacent to Lufthansa’s first class lounge near gate A13 (just past the security checkpoint though the duty free store).
It appears Lufthansa has temporarily closed this lounge since my visit last week, but you will receive identical service and amenities in the Senator Lounge. Right now, expect only a waiting room and you will not be disappointed.
