Lufthansa's Business Lounges at DTW, IAD, and JFK

Lufthansa is Europe’s largest airline, ranking among the world’s top ten airlines in revenue, passengers, miles flown, cargo carried, fleet size, and number of countries served. Based in Frankfurt, Germany and ranked by Skytrax as one of the world’s best airlines, Lufthansa boasts not only a superior product in the air, but a tremendous network of worldwide airport lounges as well. This worldwide lounge network includes a number of very pleasant, well-kept locations in the US.

Passengers traveling through these lounges have given them an overwhelmingly positive reception. Unlike most other airline lounges in the US, however, it was not possible to purchase access to Lufthansa’s lounges for the longest time - until now. That's right - LoungeBuddy has teamed up with Lufthansa to offer lounge bookings to Lufthansa Business Lounge locations in Detroit, Washington-Dulles, and New York-JFK airports!

How To Access

If you don’t have elite status or a premium cabin ticket, this is an excellent opportunity to try out a premium lounge experience that’s not typically available for paid customers. This is currently a limited time offer, so if you’re traveling somewhere this summer from one of these airports, don’t miss out. Book access today!

To book access to any of these locations, simply head on over to the LoungeBuddy web portal or the LoungeBuddy mobile App for iOS and Android.

Each location may have limited availability at peak times, so be sure to book your visit soon. If your preferred time is unavailable, you can always check availability before or after to secure a spot.

Lufthansa’s Business Class Lounges can also be accessed by passengers flying business or first class on a Star Alliance carrier, as well as Star Alliance Gold members flying on a Star Alliance carrier.
