Early 2020 AD. Timothy and I embark on a 21st century Odyssey. On the Majestic Princess from Sydney to New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji. Back to Sydney, then to Melbourne and flying back home.
After visiting the Star Alliance Lounge in the central terminal we decided to move back to the intra-Schengen area of the terminal and go to our assigned departure terminal about 2 hours before boarding.
After clearing immigration into Europe again we walked over to satellite 6, used by the Lufthansa group. We first crossed under the tarmac through one of the famous underground connectors before arriving in the satellite building. The security check only takes place once inside the satellite and it was quite a chaotic and unorganised affair, no one seemed to have any clue to what was supposed to happen. In the end we managed to get through.
The remaining waiting time we spent in the Lufthansa Business Lounge, located in the basement of the satellite. It basically is a big L shaped space without any outside windows, making it feel rather depressing.
In the front you have some high top and low table seating along with the buffet; in the rear you have some more sofa like seating options. The lounge itself was rather large, offering sufficient space for the little people using it at the time of our visit.
For a Lufthansa lounge there was a limited food and drink offering, a salad bar, some pasta and quiche and a number of different alcoholic and soft drinks.
Timothy was especially intrigued by the toilet, it had some kind of automatic plastic covering system for hygiene.
It’s an ok space to wait for your flight but also nothing extra-ordinary, luckily it beets waiting in the overcrowded satellite above. Compared to my experience with the Lufthansa Lounge in Athens the food offering was quite disappointing but there was much more seating available.
