Hi There!

Welcome to my blog.

I love cities - glam - airlines  -  and photography.  All of the images on this site were taken by me on my travels around the planet.

I can't wait to have you come on some of my adventures!

 

Lufthansa Senator Lounge Review - Dubai (DXB)

Lufthansa Senator Lounge Review - Dubai (DXB)

The United Arab Emirates and Lufthansa are both powerhouses of glam and modernity.  The international elite, business tycoons, and the über rich pulse through the federation's iconic airport, Dubai International - and Lufthansa is more than happy to cater to them!

I was thrilled to discover that they had doubled down in Dubai with a Business AND Senator Lounge. Flyers can access the Senator Lounge if they are flying First Class -- or if they are a HON Circle, Senator or Star Alliance Gold frequent flyer.  

Here is my mini review of my recent - quick - visit:

Having spent the whole day in desert heat -  I was elated to see a wide selection of libations: spirits, champagne, wine, juices, teas, and coffees. I was about to board a flight at midnight, so my sleeping medicine of choice was a smooth glass of scotch.

What a wide selection of hot and cold snacks in the Senator lounge!

The spread included: noodles, curries, salads, cheeses, sandwiches, veggies, nuts... and all kinds of snacks that are clearly bad for you (but have fun child-hood memories) including their signature Gummy Bears!

Seating

It wasn't hard to snag a seat. 

The Senator Lounge had a wide choice of options: everything from casual dining seats to hard core office chairs (if you need to bang out a couple of power point slides before your flight they are ready for you).

Thankfully, over the last little while Lufthansa has been burning, (well...retiring), their drab, grey, chunky recliners.  The seating in Dubia's  Senator lounge was new, slick, and comfortable.  

I didn't get as many pictures as I'd hope for, because the Lounge Dragon guarding the entrance, didn't look like she approved of photography.

Verdict

Clearly, this is one of Lufthansa’s better lounges.  Hip, Cool and Mod! It’s a great size, and offers everything one needs to have a relaxing and productive time while waiting for a flight!

I only wish I'd had more time to experience the luxury of it all!
