We recently flew from Newark to Frankfurt in Lufthansa’s Business Class on their new Boeing 787-9 after first visiting the Lufthansa Business Class Lounge in Newark Airport.
The Business Class Lounge is located in Terminal B and opens at 2:30pm, closing when the last flight begins boarding. The lounge has the same entry as the Senator Lounge with Business Class heading to the right and Senator to the left. There is now a wall between the two lounges however this was dropped during the pandemic to make one larger lounge. The lounge provides access to passengers with a Lufthansa Business Class or First Class ticket, Star Alliance First & Business Class, Star Alliance Gold Member and Amex Platinum cardholders.
The lounge in on the smaller side with seating available for approximately 50-60 people, however still feels spacious. I was the first to arrive when the Lounge opened meaning the food was very fresh and untouched. When it was time for my departure the lounge was full, making it near impossible for new arrivals to find a seat.
As you enter the lounge, there is a semi private area with tables, bench seating and chairs, with some under bench charging ports. As you head back out in the main area, you pass a printer, the food service on the left and high tables on the right. The lounge then opens into the main area with couches and chairs to lounge on, along with accessible charging ports.
The staff were friendly and more than willing to provided assistance when needed. Although it was a small lounge there was a fairly large food selection. Hot options include Moroccan lentil soup, chicken cacciatore, potato au gratin, braised sauerkraut and Bavarian pretzels. Cold options included chicken and vegetable wraps, chocolate and raspberry mousse, potato with bacon and several salads.
Additionally there was a Snack Station offering coffee cake, trail mix, chocolate chip cookies, yoghurt covered pretzels, skittles, gummy bears, veggie straws and mixed nuts. Around the side was self serve wine, beer, coffee and soft drinks.
Although the Lufthansa Business Class Lounge in Newark is on the smaller side, it still proves to be a comfortable place to relax prior to your flight. The food and drinks selection was good and a good number of charging ports were available, making it easy for those travelling for business to continue work.
