One of my favorite lounges in the world is now available to all travelers at a cost of €149. I cannot imagine this lasting, but it may represent a particularly good deal if you have a long layover between flights.
Purchase A Lufthansa First Class Lounge Pass For €149
After closing for several months, the Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Frankfurt (A Gates) re-opened earlier this month. This week, limited food and beverage service has resumed. While the lounge has not restored its full a la carte menu, buffet, and extensive drink list, it has promised to continue to re-introduce options during the summer.
During the pandemic Lufthansa has grounded its Airbus A340 and A380 fleet and with it, the majority of its first class seats. While the Boeing 747-8 continues to operate with first class seats and Lufthansa has confirmed future deliveries of the Airbus A350 will feature first class, the number of available first class seats is currently very limited.
The First Class Lounges have never been busy, but I can only imagine they are virtually empty now. Recognizing that under-utilized space, Lufthansa is selling first class lounge access at an attractive price of €149 in Frankfurt here.
Lufthansa outlines the limitations of the pass, which amazingly do not include time restrictions:
- Purchasing lounge access does not need any loyalty system membership, membership status or a specific booking class
- Access to the lounge is restricted to the date on the booking confirmation and demands a valid boarding pass for the same day from any airline
- Free access for kids under the age 2 accompanied by an adult
- No access for passengers in airlines uniform
- Lounge access purchase is only permitted for non-entrepreneurial usage
I love that last point: bloggers not welcome! Ha ha.
Note that HON Circle members as well as America Express Centurion cardholders continue to have access to this lounge.
There’s something perverse about “getting your money’s worth” by polluting your liver with more alcohol than you would otherwise drink, but this is not a bad deal at all on a long layover if you do enjoy a full meal, shower, and a nice place to relax.
