Hi All,


I am a Star Alliance Gold member travelling from LHR Terminal 2. Anyone know what the best star alliance lounge is in this Terminal to spend most of my time in? Is SIA lounge the best one?

Thanks in advance :)

I've heard the United one is pretty good.

I like the Singapore Airlines lounge: has SQ's modern 'home away from home' design and the usual features, but also a staffed cocktail bar which is rare for an SQ lounge.

However, if you want a true barista-made coffee, you'll only find that in the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, if my memory serves me correctly.

Remember that if you're entitled to enter one of these lounges, you're usually entitled to enter most others of the same cabin class (unless you're a Velocity member flying with SQ, in which case SQ is the only option), so if you have enough time, you could always go exploring to see which one you like best. :)

I like the SQ lounge. There's usually a good selection of food, and some great tarmac views from the back part of the lounge. You can also get started early on teh Singapore Sling's at the bar, if that's your thing!

Agree on ducking into the Air Canada for barista-pulled coffee, then back to the SQ lounge for your meal and a visit to the bar. Also check out the United lounge, which is surprisingly decent (for a UA lounge!) and has some interesting aviation-themed decor.

Just note that these lounges are all in the Terminal 2B satellite area, not the main Terminal 2A from which Lufthansa leaves... and there's no automated walkway back from 2B to 2A (logical enough, because this is a departures zone and almost everybody going to 2B is catching a flight from there, not lounge-hopping)... so leave extra time to get back from 2B to 2A for your LH flight.

(A simple trick to help: check the time when you start on your 2A-to-2B trek and then when you reach the 2B lounge precinct. This gives you an accurate idea of the time it'll take you to get back to 2B.)

There isn't a bad lounge in terminal 2, all have their own highlights....if you have lots of time, would be worth looking in all of them

I like the quiet area along the back wall of the LH senator lounge

For intra Europe flights on Lufthansa Group, Aegean etc... The LH Senator Lounge is great as these flights leave from 2A. I was there last week flying to Athens and considered going to 2B to check out United, SQ etc but the return journey back to 2A takes 40 mins. But the SQ and UA lounges are pretty special.

I was there this week and spent time in both Air Canada's lounge (despite flying from Sector A) and the Lufthansa Senator lounge as I had a five-hour layover. The AC lounge has a more spacious feel and the range of food is better, in my opinion. The espresso machine even makes a pretty decent cup of espresso if the barista happens not to be there at the time. The estimate to get from the Maple Leaf lounge to Sector A was 30 minutes, but in fact it took me 10, without rushing; as far as I could see, one can only use elevators to get from B to A as the escalators run in only one direction (ie, from Security towards B), and elevators make things rather faster. Nevertheless, it would be worth allowing 25 minutes for safety.

I was lucky last year flying in J with A3 to LCA. I had an upcoming SQ J flight so saved the krisflyer lounge for then. Ended up in the senator lounge, and my flight departed from the gate immediately at the bottom of the escalator...literally 30 seconds from lounge to gate.
