I'm flying CX J to FRA then connecting with AB to TXL (2.5hr connection in FRA). Which would be the best lounge OW to have a shower in FRA (have OW Sapphire/QFF Gold). I have had a look and AB 'lounges' seem no more than a glorified gate lounge with a coffee machine! I haven't connected through FRA yet and I'm not sure logistically if I can use the CX Lounge (which seems like would be a decent option), as I'm leaving from a Schengen gate for the TXL flight!
Thanking you for your help! G

On the Oneworld website, Airberlin appears to use the Iberia lounge. However, this does not appear to have showers.
On the terminal map, the Iberia lounge doesn't appear too far from the CX lounge (which would be the best option)... I haven't been to FRA in a few years and can't remember the Schengen process.

The lounge is located after the passport control for departing non-Schengen area.
When you arrived in Frankfurt, I think you should the lounge for refreshment or shower, go through passport control and then go to the gate for your Airberlin flight.
Thanks dommey. Exactly the advice I was after. I also looked on the OW site and the Iberia site too and it seemed like there was no showers there and I didn't want to get caught in the Schengen/Non-Schengen thing and not be able to go back to a good lounge!
