As the hub operator at Warsaw Chopin airport, LOT Polish Airlines’ lounge within the Schengen area is conveniently located right above the fast track security area. The lounge is not exceptionally big, and during my time of visit before my flight to Frankfurt, the entire lounge was overcrowded. I did managed to find a seat at the corner of the lounge, but no great pictures of different seating options were captured.
- Location: Terminal A, Schengen area,mezzanine above departures level, close to gate 25/26, accessible by stair or lift;
- Opening Hours: 5:00 – 23:00;
- Wi-Fi access: Yes
- Admission: Business Class, Star Alliance Gold and above, Hon Circle Senator and FTL.
The lounge was divided into two different areas, one for business class passengers and one for Star Alliance Gold elites. There’s another check-in agent at the elite lounge which will check your boarding pass again. The elite lounge also has slightly better food and drinks options.
Here’s the only picture I got at the Business Polonez Lounge, as the rest of the area are fully occupied.
The food and drinks selection are already exceptional at the business lounge area, they have a different variety of options from fresh fruits to snacks and cold cut plate to warm dishes.
The entrance to the Star Alliance Elite Club lounge is quiet narrow, but once entered, you will have a more intimate and private area to relax in.
Unfortunately, this part of the lounge was also packed during my visit, so the I only managed to grab some pictures of the seating area in the end hall of the lounge.
The elite club lounge offers more choices of warm dishes and better dessert options. Food and drinks at both lounges are being replenished at a fast pace, as numerous staff were constantly working at different stations in the lounge.
Another impressive features is that the lounge offers free spa treatment for all passengers, though they don’t offer full body treatments, you would be able to choose between facial, neck or foot. I was anxious to take off my shoes, so I went with the facial.
The lady who did the treatment was extremely nice, she told me that the lounge been doing the free spa treatment for two years now. Upon finish with the treatment you will also get a free sample of their partner brand’s cosmetic products.
The lounge offers some quality food and drinks options for passengers, most passengers would be able to have a enjoyable visit with all the different features they managed to offer. You may also read my flight review with LOT Polish Airlines.
