If you are flying Club with British Airways or other participating airlines from Munich you will have access to the lounge in terminal one. You can also pay to enter the lounge with prices starting at 49.40 euros per person. It is relatively small but bright and modern lounge so here’s our quick review of the business class lounge in Munich Airport.
Business class lounge in Munich airport
Check-in is quick and efficient. Two ladies man the desk and with a quick scan of our passes, we enter the lounge.
On first sight the lounge appears pretty compact but there are two floors. There are seating areas in large pods alongside a number of smaller more functional tables. However, at busy times you may find it difficult to find seating together.
The lounge is in a fantastic location in the heart of terminal one. Once you go through security for the B gates, turn left and it is immediately up some stairs to your left. You can take the lift or walk up several flights to the top.
The first thing that strikes you as you enter the lounge is how modern and bright it is. Funky lime and grey seating pods contrast with white and orange tables in the food area. The far wall is a full length wall of glass along the lounge letting in bright sunshine on our visit.
I really like the fact that transparent lockers are available for use by guests. These are to the left of the entrance. Doors are see through so you don’t even have to worry about whether you can recall the number of the locker you selected.
There are plenty of charging points for European plugs and USBs in the pods. Things are a little trickier in the dining area as only tables by the walls have access to chargers and even then they did not seem to be as plentiful.
Food options are reasonable. There are both hot and cold options including hot dogs, soup and curry and cheese and salad. There’s also some mini desserts and mouth-watering Ritter chocolates in the lounge. Everything is self-service and laid out in such a way that neither the food or drink areas become too congested.
The drinks area is also self service with large bottles of still and sparkling water that you can use to refill bottles. You can also help yourself to a selection of spirits and wines in the fridge. There’s a coffee machine which dispels generous coffee servings of delicious lattes and we happily indulge in the little praline treats.
The restrooms are conveniently located just outside the entrance and are fresh and clean. They are a definite improvement on the restrooms in the lounge at Heathrow!
Showers are also available to guests.
Strangely the flight announcements show on a board outside the entrance. If you don’t have an airline app you need to continually pop in and out to check the boards which is a little annoying.
I would rate this lounge as 4 star overall. I like the self service and modern décor plus it really does the trick in every respect. The only major downside could be that if you turn up at very busy times you may struggle to find seating.
