Airport lounges mean a lot and make a great difference to the air travelers. Whether you are ready to embark on your long-haul travel or landing at the airport, the first thing that welcomes you is the airport lounges. Here are some of the airport lounges where you will be made to feel like a royalty.
Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse
Virgin Atlantic Airways operates its airport lounges named ‘Clubhouse’ in various parts of the world, including New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, London Heathrow Airport and London’s Gatwick Airport. The airline’s lounges at these airports have in-house spas. Virgin Atlantic Airways was in fact the first airline to offer its premium First and Business Class passengers a full spa and Jacuzzi pool within an airport lounge. The New York JFK Clubhouse is the airline’s first airport lounge outside of London to offer a spa, where passengers are offered complimentary services such as shaving, manicures, massages and facials. The passengers are also offered a wide selection of a la carte meals, desserts and fine wine from the brasserie, which can be enjoyed in a formal dining experience setting or ordered from your cozy relaxing place. The Champagne Bar is also a must-try here.
Air France La Premiere Lounge
The La Premiere Lounge is operated by Air France at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. Just sample all that this lounge offers to its premium travelers flying in First or Business Class. You can make use of the dedicated La Première hotline to reserve a table and order your favorite menu at the lounge restaurant even before you have arrived at the airport. A retinue of waiters in white uniforms with gold epaulettes, similar to those of stewards in the 1950s, will be at hand to serve you specially-created delicious cuisines. The wine and champagne list is quite impressive offering some of the finest vintages from the wine cellar of Air France. You will also be offered a wide choice of over 10 different kinds of mineral water. The travelers, while relaxing at the lounge, can seek opportunity to ask the barista to concoct their favorite drinks from the cocktail list.
British Airways Galleries Club Lounge
Get ready to brighten up your day at the British Airways Galleries Club Lounge at London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5. The business class lounge, which offers access to Oneworld passengers, is decked up in dazzling cheery colors and is located quite a distance from the noisy common waiting area. It’s quite relaxing to refresh yourself at the well-appointed washroom space, complete with branded, lotions and sweet-scented hand washes. Spend some comfortable moments sitting in the armchairs at a low tea-table or complete your official chores on the high tables using free Wi-Fi. Feeling hungry? Treat yourself to a breakfast buffet and savor gluten-free milk and cookies, cornflakes and nuts, and fresh fruits as well.
Lufthansa Senator Lounge at Frankfurt Airport
The Lufthansa Senator Lounge at the Frankfurt Airport provides a private, homely and comfortable feeling. It’s a home away from home, particularly in a foreign country. Pick a regular table or high-table to enjoy your hot meal and drink in the food and beverage area of the business class lounge. The business centre at the lounge fully equipped with printers, fax machines, photocopy machines, internet access, PCs and free Wi-Fi are there for you to fulfill your official chores. Still have few hours left to board your flight and want to take a nap, then head to one of the five ‘relaxing rooms’ fully-furnished with comfortable beds, a lamp and a table stand. The lounge also has 10 individual shower rooms as well.
