A field report with pictures.

The LuxxLounge is located in the gallery area of Terminal 1 between areas B and C. The LuxxLounge is located in the gallery area of Terminal 1 between areas B and C. The lounge can also be visited by holders of a Priority Pass*. This is of particular interest as only this lounge can be used due to the limited space in Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport. The lounges in the departure area are only available to members of the frequent flyer programmes. So is it worth visiting the LuxxLounge in Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport?

The Lounge

If you trust the marketing promises, you can expect a stylish ambience in the LuxxLounge at Frankfurt Airport, regardless of the airline you have booked. The LuxxLounge is intended to offer guests a feel-good service with a pleasant, quiet atmosphere, snacks and drinks, international daily newspapers and magazines as well as international television and free PC with Internet access. The lounge will also feature comfortable sanitary facilities with shower facilities.

So far the statements on the homepages of LuxxLounge / Frankfurt Airport, because reality is different.

Once you have passed the locked door of the entrance area, you will find 3 large rooms that are connected to sanitary facilities by a corridor. All rooms are de facto windowless as the windows do not have daylight. The furnishing should reflect a club atmosphere, but does not look very comfortable.

Although there were several employees, the tables were not cleared and the furniture was dirty. This was not inviting.

Food and drinks

The next disappointment for the guest. The food on offer is limited to Frankfurter sausages as well as sausage and cheese cold cuts. Everything seems loveless and of low quality. Anyone who has ever visited Priority Pass lounges in Asia knows what I’m talking about. Only the selection of drinks is convincing. Soft drinks, beer and spirits are available in sufficient numbers.

Other

A small business area and newspapers are also available. The sanitary facilities are ok.

Conclusion

The LuxxLounge belongs to the category “negative experiences”. It looks dark, old-fashioned and not very inviting. The buffet meets minimum requirements at best. Neither for holders of a Priority Pass* nor for day guests is it worth the 30 euros that have to be paid for a visit. As the lounge is located before the check-in area, the corresponding waiting times must also be taken into account for the visit.

Frequent flyers or holders of an American Express Platinum Card* have much better alternatives at their disposal with the Lufthansa Lounges in Terminal 1.
