Lufthansa Lounge Food and Drink Options

The food and drink options offered in Lufthansa Lounges and partner lounges will vary significantly based on the type of lounge. For example, those visiting a United Club will likely have considerably fewer food and beverage options than, say, a Lufthansa First Class Lounge, which offers a plated preflight meal service, premium cocktails, and Champagne.

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

Lufthansa Lounge Eligibility

Which Lufthansa Lounge you can access can be 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 Air, you can access any Lufthansa Lounge available, including the First Class Lounge in New York (JFK).

Star Alliance First Class Passengers

Passengers with a first class ticket on any Star Alliance carrier (besides Lufthansa and SWISS) can access any Lufthansa Lounges except for 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, Star Alliance, or codeshare 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. Elite members may bring in 1 guest traveling on the same flight.

Lufthansa or Star Alliance Business Class Ticket

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

Eligible American Express Cardholders

Travelers with the Amex Platinum card or the Amex Business Platinum card can access Lufthansa Business Lounges, regardless of their ticket class, and Lufthansa Senator Lounges (only when flying Lufthansa business class).

Regardless of ticket class, those with a Centurion card can access Lufthansa First Class, Senator, and Business Lounges.

Lufthansa Partner Lounge Eligibility

Admission rules for each 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 Lufthansa partner lounges are United Club lounges offered by its Star Alliance partner, United Airlines. There are 3 ways that you can gain access to United Clubs:

  1. Purchase 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.
  2. The United Club℠ Infinite Card has a $525 annual fee and 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 further extend your savings.
  3. 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

The 3 “The Club” locations (ATL, CLT, and SEA) can be visited by those with a Priority Pass membership.

The easiest way to get a membership is a credit card with Priority Pass which provides it as a perk for being a cardholder.

If you receive a Priority Pass Select membership through your credit card, you will need to enroll in the Priority Pass program to utilize your benefits. Do not forget this crucial step! If you do not enroll first, you will not be permitted to enter the lounge.

Lufthansa/Star Alliance Elite Status

If you hold Lufthansa Senator status or Star Alliance Gold status and above, you can access every Lufthansa partner lounge, except for the United Polaris lounge in San Francisco (SFO).

Like your own lounge access, the number of guests 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 and 1 guest.

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

Those traveling with a Lufthansa/Star Alliance business class ticket are not permitted to bring any guests into Lufthansa Lounges or its partner lounges.

Finally, the policy for guests for eligible Amex cardholders is a bit murky — entry will be subject to the terms and conditions of the lounge.

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, you likely can bring in more than 1 guest, depending on how you earned the membership. 

Final Thoughts

Lufthansa Lounges can offer an exceptional experience to passengers traveling with the airline, especially those lucky enough to visit a First Class or Senator Lounge, which offers excellent food and drinks and an 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.
