Under the guise of "Corona", frequent flyers and premium customers were removed from amenities at many airports. In many places, lounges are still closed or only offer a minimalist selection. Lufthansa wants to close many of these waiting areas in Germany.

According to a report by “Der Spiegel”, those in Bremen, Dresden, Cologne / Bonn, Leipzig and Nuremberg are affected. The lounge in New Delhi will also be closed for good. Furthermore, the abandonment of further crane waiting areas is not ruled out. If Lufthansa can come to an agreement with Star Alliance partners or other lounge operators, these lounges should be available in the future. If not, there won't be any more.

Furthermore, Lufthansa does not want to offer separate business and senator lounges in the future. These are to be merged in the future. This leads to the abandonment of further exclusive waiting areas. Munich and Frankfurt am Main are primarily affected.

At the largest airport in Germany, the “First Class Lounge” is temporarily closed. The “First Class Terminal”, which is to go back into operation from September 1, 2021, is to serve as a replacement. Lufthansa explains that operating both areas would not be economically viable. However, if you want to have significantly more passengers in this segment again, you keep the option of reactivating the lounge open.
