Lufthansa is a premium airline whose lounge locations offer a premium airport lounge experience to travelers. If you’re a frequent Lufthansa or Star Alliance flyer, you can take advantage of one of the 27 Lufthansa or Lufthansa partner lounges across 11 airport locations.

In this post, we outline a complete list of all of the U.S. Lufthansa lounge locations, including detailed information on exact airport locations, hours, and general amenities.

Lufthansa Lounge Eligibility

Which Lufthansa lounge you’re able to access can be a bit confusing, but it all comes down to what cabin class you’re flying and what status level with Lufthansa or Star Alliance.

Lufthansa or Swiss First Class Passengers

If you have a first class boarding pass for Lufthansa or Swiss Airlines then you can access any Lufthansa lounge available, including their First Class Lounges in Boston (BOS) and New York (JFK).

Star Alliance First Class Passengers

Passengers with a first class ticket on any other Star Alliance carrier (besides Lufthansa and Swiss) can access any Lufthansa lounges with the exception of their First Class Lounges.

Miles & More HON Circle Members

Frequent Lufthansa flyers with the invitation-only HON Circle status in the Miles & More program can access all Lufthansa lounges, including First Class Lounges, as long as they have a boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner flight in any cabin class.

Miles & More Senator Members

Lufthansa flyers with Senator status in the Miles & More program can access all Lufthansa lounges, except First Class Lounges, as long as they have a boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner flight in any cabin class.

Star Alliance Gold Status

Those with Star Alliance Gold status, offered with United Gold status and above, can access all Lufthansa lounges, except First Class Lounges, as long as they have a boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner flight in any cabin class.

Lufthansa or Star Alliance Business Class Ticket

Passengers with a business class ticket for Lufthansa or one of their Star Alliance partners can access all Lufthansa Business lounges, but they cannot access First Class or Senator Lounges.

Lufthansa Partner Lounge Eligibility

Admission rules for each of the Lufthansa partner lounges are much less complicated, but there are still a few rules you should be aware of.

Star Alliance Partner First Class Lounge

The only passengers eligible to access a Star Alliance partner first class lounge are those with a first class boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner flight.

Star Alliance Business Class Lounge

Eligibility rules for Star Alliance business class lounges are much less strict. The lounges can be accessed by any passengers with a business or first class boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance partner flight, travelers with Star Alliance Gold status (regardless of cabin class), and travelers with Miles & More Senator or HON Circle status (regardless of cabin class).

Other Partner Lounge Eligibility Options

United Club Membership

Many of the Lufthansa partners lounges are United Club lounges offered by their Star Alliance partner, United Airlines. There are 3 ways that you can gain access to United Clubs.

The first is by purchasing a yearly United Club membership which will set you back $650 or 85,000 United miles, though we do not advise the latter as it would be an extremely poor use of miles. You can also purchase day passes for $59.

The second is through the United Club℠ Card from Chase. The United Club card has a $450 annual fee but also includes a yearly membership to all United Clubs. So it is already a much better deal than purchasing the lounge membership outright. The United Club card also offers 2 free checked bags on all United flights to extend your savings even further.

Finally, those with United/Star Alliance Gold Status via the United Airlines MileagePlus loyalty program can access United Club lounges on international flights operated by a Star Alliance member airline. Keep in mind that this option only covers international flights, whereas the first 2 cover domestic trips as well.

Hot Tip: If you’re hoping to access a United Polaris lounge, none of these 3 options will gain you entry. The only way to access a United Polaris lounge is with a boarding pass for United Polaris or a Star Alliance partner first or business class ticket.

Priority Pass

5 of the partner lounge locations, which are the 4 “The Club” locations (ATL, DFW, MCO, and SEA) and the Avianca VIP lounge in MIA, can be visited by those with a Priority Pass membershipThe easiest way to get a Priority Pass membership is through one of the many credit cards that provides it as a perk for being a cardholder.

Similar to your own lounge access, the number of guests that you can bring into a Lufthansa or Lufthansa partner lounge with you depends on your ticket type or status level with Lufthansa. For the most part, you will likely be able to bring at least 1 guest into the lounge with you, with a few exceptions.

If you’re visiting a Lufthansa lounge via a Lufthansa or Swiss first class ticket or are a Miles & More HON Circle member, you can bring your spouse and children under 18 years old, in addition to 1 guest.

Miles & More Senator Members visiting a Lufthansa lounge can bring in any children under 18 years old, in addition to 1 guest.

Finally, those traveling with a Lufthansa/Star Alliance business class ticket are not permitted to bring any guests into Lufthansa lounges, nor their partner lounges.

Hot Tip: If you’re planning to visit one of the Lufthansa partner lounges that you receive access to via a Priority Pass or United Club membership, then you likely can bring in more than 1 guest, depending on how you earned the membership. See our full Priority Pass membership page for more details. 

Lufthansa Lounge Food and Drink Options

The food and drink options offered in Lufthansa lounges and their partner lounges are going to vary a great deal based on what type of lounge it is. For example, those visiting a United Club will likely have significantly less food and beverage options than, say, a Lufthansa First Class Lounge, which offers a plated pre-flight meal service, premium cocktails, and Champagne.

With that said, all locations are going to offer some sort of complimentary food and drink options along with a range of beers, liquors, spirits, non-alcoholic drinks, and sodas.

Final Thoughts

Lufthansa lounges can offer a really exceptional experience to passengers traveling with the airline, especially those lucky enough to visit a First Class or Senator Lounge which offers premium food and drinks and elevated service experience. But no matter which lounge you visit, there’ll be great food and drink options and a place to kick back and relax while you wait for your flight.

As Lufthansa expands its U.S. lounge network, we will continually update this list as regularly as possible so that you’ve got the most recent information.
