As 2021 draws to a close, it is time for my annual “Top 10” series. Here, I’ll look back on the 10 best airport lounges I visited in 2021.
Note, this is not my all-time “top 10” list, but only my “top 10” list of lounges I visited this year.
10. United Club Chicago (ORD – B6)
Why a United Club? Chicago-style hot dogs, one of my weaknesses. No ketchup allowed!

1. Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt (FRA)
After a year of closure, it was so nice to be back in the First Class Terminal at Frankfurt. While the menu is not as comprehensive as prior to the pandemic, you can still a very comfortable stay here.
