Im curious to know how many times you have been in a Business Lounge - With what Airline and at what Airport.

I have only been in one so far Sad It was Aer Lingus in DUB when I was going back to MAN. Great lounge - I made the most of the free food/drinks Smile And hey, I deserved it for a 25 min flight Big grin

Anyone care to share?

I've also been in one Business lounge. I was flying Ukraine International Airlines from KBP-AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA in Business Class and spent about 1.5 hours in their Kiev Lounge. It was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate at all to fly them again.

SAS Business Lounge at ARN, CDG, AMS.
Swiss Business Lounge at ZRH.
UA Red Carpet Lounge at EWR.
SQ First Class Lounge at BKK.

Of these I'd say the Swiss Lounge at ZRH was the nicest. Very spacious with lots of sofas and lounge chairs. Plus plenty of good food and drink!  Smile

It must be up to 100 different. CX in Hong Kong was very nice. Quiet and soft...

    I have been in a lot of them, but here are the best ones and why:

    Air Canada Maple Leaf in Vancouver. Great Canadian beer in bottles and on tap. Free packs of salty almonds. Lots of free newspapers and magazines.

    United Red Carpet Club at Narita. More free beer (recognize a theme?), this time with frosted glasses that you pull out of a freezer. You place them on a little stand, which tilts up automatically and pours you a beer. Also, great views of the runway.

    United Red Carpet HNL. Again, a great view of the runway also Mai Tais (not free).

    Lufthansa (senator I believe) lounge at Frankfurt. Good coffee and German Pretzels, a fair view of the runway (I know there are probably several of them in the airport, don't remember which one). United's arrivals Red Carpet club also has showers. View is not as good.

    can't remember them all, but, best to worst that i've been to in the past couple of years:

    KE @ ICN - an oasis of tranquility
    AF @ CDG3 - spacious and beautiful
    AF @ SA - New York">JFK - nice, but not big enough for all the use it gets
    ME @ BEY - spacious but spartan and lacking amenities (terrible seating) - killer view, though
    SA)">UA @ LHR - spacious, but bathrooms a veritable truck stop
    NZ @ KL / NZAA), New Zealand">AKL - nothing special
    SA)">UA @ SA - New York">JFK - less than nothing special
    KL @ SA - New York">JFK - ok, but landside (a big minus in my book)
    KE @ DXB - subpar
    RG @ GIG - spacious, but blaring TVs drown out any hope of relaxation
    SA @ JNB - incredibly crowded
    KU @ KWI - weird
    ET @ ADD - glaring and loud
    KU @ LHR - lousy
    SV @ JED - pretty bad
    RG @ GRU - cramped and horrible

    SYD- QF (both J and F) Pretty ordinary and SLOW internet facilities in both F and J
    MEL - QF 9Ordinary
    LAX-AA/QF F class (T4) OK, with some food but pretty ordinary for F class.
    BOS: UA (terrible)
    BOS: BA Club World (OK with good pre-dinning)
    JFK: BA Club World (Pretty good, with Molton Brown amenities and good pre flight dinning)
    LHR: BA (F and J Class) T4 and T1.Pretty good. Molton Bown Spa and good snacks
    CDG: T4 and T1 ( I can't remember the number) they share with AF. Which is OK
    FCO: OK
    AA), Japan">NRT: CX (Small but cosy and internet facilities and Cup Noodles)
    HKG: CX!!!! the BEST!!!!!! the Wing and the Pier. I think even the J class lounge beats all the other F Class lounge I've to!!!. Restaurant, Cafe, Hagen Daz Ice Cream, Cabanna Bath suites..... the list goes on
    HKG: QF (forget about it and goto the CX one)
    SIN: CX Small and cozy
    KIX: CX (Not that good and poor choice of food)
    DXB: BA (ok with some interesting middle eastern food)

    AA lounges in USA are all pretty bad!! I cannot believe you have to pay for a drink (after the 1-2 free drink vounchers!!) no food @ all!

    There is a better way to gain access to first class lounges at any airport worldwide.
    Get the American Express Platinum card and a Diner's Club card as well.
